Welcome to Clay County....


a rural community in Alabama where the pace is slow and the people are friendly. This is a place where you often see dogs roaming the country roads and cats chasing field mice. Some of the residents are kind enough to feed these stray animals, but most cannot afford to have them spayed or neutered.  Without an animal shelter, the options for these unwanted dogs and cats are limited.



In 2011, co-founders Patricia Wolf and Marie Greeson formed a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization called Citizens for the Welfare of Animals in Clay County (CWACC) in order to address this issue. They set up the organization so that 100% of all membership fees and donations go into a Spay-Neuter Program. Spaying and neutering will drastically reduce the overpopulation of unwanted animals. This will ultimately improve the quality of life for these precious creatures that respond so lovingly to the kindness of the dedicated members and volunteers who help make a difference.

If you would like to help CWACC then:

  • get your pet spayed or neutered
  • become a member to show your support and be assured a say at Board meetings
  • donate to the Spay-Neuter Program to help as many animals as possible
  • volunteer your time, talent or service
  • email a suggestion or idea
  • share this site with others who wish to give to a charitable organization where 100% of all contributions benefit animals

We especially thank PICTURE IT -Architectural Drafting Service for their specific contributions that pay for the administrative expenses of our organization.

We thank Young's Drug Store in Lineville for their specific contributions to our raffle prize money.


We are grateful for the support of these special people who respect animals and believe in our Spay-Neuter Program.  Your donations give hope to the selfless volunteers of our organization.  Every dollar is used to help pay for the spay or neuter of a cat or dog. 

We respect our donors which is why we DO NOT sell or trade our donor's personal information.
