Warren County Animal Control History
1989 Homer and Alice Drew begin caring for homeless animals in Warren County and form the Animal Welfare Association (AWA). Alice expands services to include multiple foster homes and pet adoption, as well as working with first responders (911) on emergency animal calls.
2000 AWA gives notice to the Warren County Commissioners that it can no longer perform these services for the county. AWA continues to foster when the shelter fills up recognizing that great adoptable pets often need in-home training to bring forth their best potential.
In parallel, a rescue group, Homeward Bound, works with the City of Warrenton in a fostering and adoption program for Warrenton city residents through the city’s animal shelter.
The City of Warrenton shelter is open 7 days a week. Officers work tirelessly to place homeless or owner-relinquished animals within Warrenton city limits.
2001 A group of "Concerned Citizens", realizing they were living in a county with no animal control or shelter, forms CCAC. They begin fundraising and host outreach programs for animal care.
2008 CCAC purchases 3 acres of land to build the animal shelter. It is located about 4 miles west of the I-70 Warrenton exit just off the north service road.
2016 CCAC installs new Board members and committees to relaunch the goal of establishing an animal shelter for Warren County. The "Shelter Challenge" of $100,00 by the end of 2018 was introduced.
2018 The Shelter Challenge" goal of raising $100,000 is reached
2019 The "Shelter Build" begins with a goal of animals in a shelter by 2020 as group continues search for a suitable location.
2020 Raise the Woof campaign begins and plans sent to architect for location off highway M
Don’t accept your dog’s admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.
Way down deep, we’re all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.
