This is an great organization with passionate and committed volunteers, staff and board members. It's good to know I'm supporting my local community of Contra Costa County, and it's an organization that helps both animals and their people.

16 years ago our family found the most wonderful dog through the Contra Costa Humane Society. After leaving Hewlett Packard about 5 years ago I wanted to find a non-profit organization that I could volunteer with and make an impact. Contra Costa Humane Society is an amazing organization. We are making our community a better place for humans and animals.
