Concern for Animals 

For 35 years, Concern for Animals has helped thousands of animals in Olympia and surrounding counties by providing funding for veterinary and rescue services as follows:

  • low cost spay/neuter 

  • emergency medical care

  • animal food bank

  • rescue & adoption

Concern for Animals depends on donations, membership, small grants and fundraising events to fund our programs for pet owners and their animals.
