Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful and committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that has. -Margaret Mead
Improve the quality of life for dogs and cats in our community, find homes for animals in need, and provide support for people who need assistance with care for their animals.
Contra Costa Humane Society was formed as the result of the merger between two groups, Stop Pets’ Annual Yield (SPAY) and Animal Protection Bureau (APB). SPAY was established in 1971 to support the Spay/Neuter Clinic locally and APB formed in 1980 to combat the homeless animal problem in Contra Costa County. A merger between the two groups was completed in 1991 and we have served Contra Costa County as CCHS ever since.
CCHS is under the direction of staff members and a Board of Directors. Read more about the Leadership Team >
