To promote the welfare of animals and keep families together, Concern for Animals (CFA) provides spay/neuter and medical care funding, pet food bank and rescue & adoption programs in the Thurston, Mason, and Lewis County area.
Concern for Animals provides financial assistance to qualified pet owners that need to alter their pets yet cannot afford the cost. Low-cost spay/neuter procedures are available at local veterinary offices recommended by Concern for Animals. Funding to fix feral cats and dogs provides relief to communities - reducing unwanted litters, animal overpopulation and overcrowding of animal shelters. Proof of low income, military, student or retirement status is required before authorizing veterinarian services in Lewis, Mason and Thurston counties. Please contact (360) 456-8176 for more information about spay/neuter assistance.
Concern for Animals provides voucher assistance for emergency medical care. Proof of low income, military, student or retirement status is required before authorizing veterinary services in Lewis, Mason and Thurston counties. Please contact (360) 456-8176 for more information regarding emergency medical care financial assistance. Funding is not available for routine office visits, vaccines, rabies/feline leukemia testing, or pre-existing conditions.
Concern for Animals offers a free, pet food bank for qualified pet owners. Pet owners can call 360-456-8176 to request more information and make arrangements to pick up food on Monday afternoons at the food bank. CFA is a non-profit organization and our ability to fund the animal food bank is subject to generous donations from our community. CFA has the right to decline food bank assistance based on pet owner's qualifications and supplies. We cannot guarantee pet food is available or that everyone qualifies. In appropriate treatment to the CFA staff may result in termination of services. Thank you! Click Here for our Food Bank Guidelines.
We are always seeking donations - dry and canned dog and cat food, cat litter, toys, treats, bedding, collars and leashes. For locations to drop off donations, visit our Food Bank page. You can also help by printing out our Food Bank Flyer and post on your office bulletin board!

Beginning 2014, Concern for Animals will be offering funding through our Discretionary Fund. This program assists those that have encountered financial struggle, but do not qualify for state assistance. A one-time opportunity to take advantage of our services will be offered- without proof of low-income status. If you are in need of pet food, have recently adopted an animal and need to have a spay/neuter procedure done, or have inquiries on what you may qualify for, please call (360) 456-8176. This program's availability is strictly based on donations and grant funding. It is only available once per client. This program does not fund routine exams, vaccines, rabies and feline leukemia testing, or pre-existing conditions. Qualification is not guaranteed.
Within the limitations of a set monthly budget, CFA follows these procedures:
