We are an all-volunteer, foster-based, certified 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization based in Bay County, Florida. We do not have a physical shelter; therefore we operate primarily through our foster homes, online databases, and adoption events/expos. Because we are a strictly in-home foster-based, no-kill organization, we heartbreakingly cannot take in every animal that needs assistance. Our primary mission is to pull as many of our animals as possible from the open admission shelter in Bay County, Florida, where overcrowding and overpopulation leads to the euthanasia of a great number of animals every year. Our secondary mission is to help control the local animal population by encouraging responsible pet ownership through education with a particular emphasis on the need for spaying and neutering. We are committed to providing the animals that come into CCLAR, Inc. with everything a beloved family pet would receive. Such things include: necessary veterinary care to include medical treatment, vaccinations, and sterilization, bellies full of nutritious food and clean water, and an environment where the foster pet is loved, nurtured, and cared for by our fosters in a way that will build a sound foundation for the foster pet to become an amazing lifelong companion once adopted.
