Concern for Animals is a 40 year old 501(c) 3 non-profit located in the heart of Olympia that is powered by passionate, animal-loving volunteers and staff that are dedicated to the welfare and quality of life of animals in Thurston, Mason and Lewis counties. 

The mission that drove Ann Albohn and Joyce Pearce to found Concern for Animals in 1980 is the same mission CFA fights for today:

“To assist those struggling financially with pets in need of food, medical care, and spay/neuter procedures, and to promote the welfare of all animals.”

Concern for Animals (CFA) began with a vision to help those who cannot help themselves, and over the years CFA has assisted thousands of animals in need with a variety of veterinary services. Keeping our community safe, healthy, and happy is our priority.


Here's how we do it:

Serving Mason, Thurston, and Lewis counties, CFA supplies a weekly pet food bank, spay/neuter program, and veterinary assistance fund for low income pet owners that in some situations may view euthanasia, surrender, or even abandonment as their only options. Some of our services include:

- Spay/Neuter & Medical Vouchers

Pet food bank & pet food delivery with Meals on Wheels

Rescue, rehabilitation, & adoption program

- Education

- Trap, neuter, & return

- Services for senior pet owners

- Services for pet owners experiencing domestic abuse and homelessness

Concern for Animals requires each assistance applicant to apply for financial assistance PRIOR TO the veterinary appointment. CFA does not fund current or past-due veterinary balances. Certain criteria must be met for applicants to be eligible for financial assistance. For more information on financial assistance, please visit our Services page or call 360-456-8176.



Your donations make it possible for us to continue our work providing valuable and much needed solutions for pet-parents in crisis situations. They allow us to rescue more kittens, treat more pups, and feed the birds, guinea pigs, bearded lizards, and more that risk going hungry in our shared community.

If you would like to join the fight and help animals that cannot help themselves, consider giving a donation.
