Hi there, hoomans!

It's nice to meet you, we're so glad you're here! We're a small non-profit animal shelter located in rural Kansas. We are a grateful, thankful, successful no-kill shelter. Since 2016, we've been dedicated to matching four-legged friends with their forever families. We are a community-supported, well-respected organization that prides itself on top-notch care for the animals, and quality education programs for the citizens of Clay County. Currently, we are a dog-only shelter, but we have big plans for the future!


We've helped more than one thousand dogs since our doors opened, and we've got even bigger dreams on our horizon. We hope you'll be part of it. 🖤

A Proud No-Kill Shelter

A healthy, adoptable dog will always find a home. An animal is only euthanized out of necessity based on quality of life needs.

250 Dogs Per Year

A dog per business day, on average. That's a lot of dogs for our staff of two in a small community. It's a labor of love, and will always be.

Our CCARE family has room for you, too.

We couldn't do what we do without our supporters, and there's room for you! There are so many ways you can help - from adoptions, to financial support, to volunteering your time and talents, we strive to provide options for every community member to get involved.


Adopt a dog and you'll save two lives - the one you adopt, and the one that takes its place.


We offer easy and convenient ways to donate with one-time and recurring options.


Whether you prefer snuggling dogs or folding laundry, we have jobs for everyone!

We Love Our Adopters!
