Community Partnership for Pets, Inc. (CPPI) was started in 2005 in Henderson County, NC with a passion and mission to do anything and everything possible to reduce the suffering and euthanasia of dogs, puppies, cats and kittens.
Our research showed that to save them, we had to stop the daily birth of unwanted puppies and kittens AND we had to keep dogs, puppies, cats and kittens already living in the community out of the shelter. When animals become ‘unwanted’, for whatever reason, they are more likely to be abandoned, abused or taken to the shelter.
We created and implemented a variety of programs such as spay/neuter, emergency veterinarian care, pet food assistance, etc.. We partnered with people, businesses, agencies (i.e. Dept. of Social Services), veterinarians, animal control and others whose day-to-day work crossed paths with low-income families and their pets. Each person we connected with and each program we implemented created positive outcomes for the dogs and cats we care about. The results of our work can be seen with 52% fewer animals coming into the Henderson County Shelter and 78% of the animals leaving the shelter alive.
If we could achieve these results in just one County, could we help other communities and Counties across North Carolina save more animals? Absolutely! Our new mission is to partner with community and County organizations across North Carolina to establish programs to focus on eliminating the suffering and euthanasia of dogs and cats.
Join us as we set out on our new chapter of Saving Lives Across the State of North Carolina.
If you feel your community or County could benefit from the programs we have available, please contact us.
