FOCCAS is a federal tax exempt non-profit 501(c)(3). It is an all volunteer organization started by two women in 2004 who wanted to address the unsafe, unsanitary conditions that existed in the county animal shelter.  FOCCAS assists the Colusa County Animal Shelter to increase pet adoptions through outreach programs, provide community education about animal care, bring improvements to the existing shelter, and implement a spay/neuter program.

The many improvements that have been made over the years have only been possible with the generous donations of individuals and businesses who have made donations of money, labor, and goods. FOCCAS relies on the public to get involved with the county shelter and on donations from those people who find it in their heart to help the animals.

FOCCAS' EIN is 38-3743588.
