Community Involvement

We are proud to support a number of community organizations through donations, and we offer discounted services for many nonprofit rescues in the Centre Region. Each one of us who works on the CAH team followed our heart into this profession, and it is rewarding to be able to do our part in helping give animals in need a fresh start.
