Up to 40% of women seeking shelter report that concern for pets' welfare prevented them from seeking shelter sooner.
CADA is currently seeking volunteers interested in being a part of the CADA Pets Program in which volunteers would provide a safe home for pets belonging to women and families fleeing abusive homes.
We have a strong need for foster homes for cats!
If you are interested and would like more information,
please contact Melissa at email@example.com
We are currently accepting Senior level internship applications for the Fall 2013 semester until June 15, 2013. We will only place 1-2 interns per semester.
Due to the nature and sensitivity of our services, interns will be unable to provide direct services or shadow Advocates when they provide crisis intervention to clients at CADA, Inc.
