CCAPS has such great people that come together and helps in ways tjat will amaze you, just come and see for yourself.
I have adopted 4 kittens from CCAP's. One when I first moved to Arkansas 5 yrs. ago and 3 more this yr. After fostering these kittens and bottle feeding them the family fell in love and decided to keep them. The people at CCAP's are some of the most caring people you will ever meet. They treat these animals as if they are their own. The organization is ran strictly by donations and needs all the help they can get. They try to never turn an animal away, but with limited funds and space sometimes it gets hard. I live in the country and people dump off dogs out here all the time in sad shape. Once they find their way to my house they really look bad. I have taken these dogs to Steve at CCAP's and in no time he has them looking so good and happy; you could not find better a better organization anywhere.
This is the only shelter in our county to help homeless animals. They depend on what their "Second Chances CCAPS Store" for support and donations from the public. They do wonderful work. I have adopted two fur babies through them.
I just moved to Arkansas from Texas. Although , I have never been to this facility, I have donated. They rely solely on donations from their store, and from the general public, like myself. My daughter just moved into her first apartment, and wants a dog. We will be adopting here. I have never seen such dedication to animals than this group of amazing people. They help out ANY animal. No questions asked! Thank you, CCaps!
My special needs teen has volunteered at CCAPS for two summers. Steve and the crew are compassionate to all animals and individuals. The kennels are well kept and the animals are well cared for. My other two younger sons can't wait to be old enough to volunteer.
I have never personally visited the Columbia County Animal Protection Society (CCAPS) kennels or grounds. I have only had contact via Facebook. I have visited ther postings and read most every post for over a year. I have never seen such dedication and caring for animals by one group in my life. They post daily and share pictures and stories of rescue along with glad tiding of adoption with anyone willing to read. They accept and care for dogs and cats that would either die on the streets at the mercy of cruel human beings to taking in a beloved pet that for one reason or another must be given up. Even when overflowing they find the room for that just one more. They have a very active support network of loving individuals that care for the animals in many varring ways. They activily try to support their facilities with sales, baked goods sales, animal parades and activities. I live to many miles away to be of any support other than a few dollars whenever I can, but if closer I would be honored to be associated with and part of their society.
These people are thoughtful protective staff and volunteers who care deeply for the finest care of animals. No matter when we have gone there, the same atmosphere prevails and they are additionally helpful to visitors. I appreciate that they have kept up a website to let us know how things are going and what will be helpful to them as far as their needs and donations. Thank you for being in Magnolia!
I have been volunteering at CCAPS for 6 years. Some of the animals we take in are just heartbreaking, you cry a lot of days but then when that one you have nurtured back to health gets to go home, WOW what a great feeling! CCAPS does a tremendous job taking care of all the unwanted, dumped and neglected dogs and cats not only from our city/county but from several counties in our area but we are nonprofit, meaning no county, city, state or federal funds. All of our support comes from donations and our Second Chances thrift store. We house around 100 puppies/dogs and 70 kittens/cats at all times while our budget is for 50 dogs and 35-40 cats! Please join our Face book page CCAPS-Dog Shelter for pics and updates.
One of the best run shelters I've visited. Caring consurned staff and volunteers, the shelter director often covers medical expenses out of his own pocket. They keep the shelter as clean as they can, rotate the dogs through some fenced in areas so they can get some exercise and fresh air. They really go above and beyond!

A few weeks ago, my family adopted a puppy from CCAPS. We were very happy with the care given the puppy prior to adoption. When I visited the facility, it was very clean. The animals were well cared for. The volunteers who helped me were very friendly and helpful. I urge anyone that can to donate to this organization. I certainly plan to donate
