Thank You - Donations - Memorials - Grants

CFA receives donations, thank-you cards, compliments and In Memory of donations throughout the year. We are grateful for all the individual donations received throughout the year to further our mission. Because of the volume, it’s almost impossible to list each donor here. You know who you are, and we are eternally grateful. Thank you for helping those who cannot help themselves! 


    Thank you to Alley Cat Allies for granting CFA $2,500 to go towards the partnered effort with the Chehalis Tribe Animal Control for trap/neuter/return. This grant will help promote and perform spay/neuter efforts on homeless, feral cats and kittens and prevent hundreds of potential unwanted litters from facing homelessness or euthanasia. 
  Dawkins Charitable Trust 
  The BISSELL Pet Foundation has awarded CFA a $6,000 grant for low-cost spay and neuter vouchers for cats and dogs owned by low-income families in Thurston, Mason and Lewis counties! This turn prevents unwanted litters, abandonment, and euthanasia. Thank you, BISSELL Pet Foundation!
  We are grateful to The Community Foundation of South Puget Sound for awarding CFA a $1,000 grant to purchase microchips for the adoption program and for inviting us to participate in Give Local, which raised even more. The adoption program helps vulnerable animals find their forever homes.
  Thank you to the Lazin Animal Foundation for granting CFA $10,000 for the medical care program. Your generosity saves animal's lives! 
  Thank you to The Albohn Family Foundation for awarding CFA a $10,000 grant to support our spay/neuter and medical programs. This Foundation was established by our founder, Ann Albohn, prior to her passing many years ago. Ann's legacy continues as we carry out her mission to help those who cannot help themselves.

Many thank to the Nisqually Indian Tribe for awarding CFA a $12,000 grant to renovate the basement. The basement was built in 1927 with bricks and no proper drainage. Your gift will help keep the pet food there safe and dry for years to come. 

  Thank you Rotary Club of South Puget Sound for your $500 spay/neuter grant. Not only does spaying/neutering reduce overpopulation, it also prevents health problems down the line. It decreases the chance of mammary tumors and testicular cancer and eliminates any problems giving birth. Your contribution will be a big help to this community's pets! 

Thank you to the Mary P. Dolciani Halloran Foundation for awarding CFA a grant for medical care for dogs with senior (over 60) owners. Many people calling for help are seniors. Oftentimes their pets are their only companions, so their welfare is very important to them!


Thank you to the Thurston county Humane Society for serving the community during the COVID-19 pandemic and providing a grant to the Concern for Animals Pet Food Bank to help provide for food to owners struggling with lost wages and jobs. In uncertain times, your support protects the welfare of many animals in need and provides a much needed pillar of support to those struggling owners
