CARES was founded in September 2007. What was once just a vision soon turned into their Mission. CARES (Community Animal Rescue & Educational Shelter) dedicate their entire being in helping the unfortunate pets of their community. In just over three years, CARES has rescued and re-homed over 670 pets. These pets once belonged somewhere, to someone and left to fend for themselves either by abuse, neglect, or pure ignorance. CARES believes that there is that perfect Forever Home for each and every pet they rescue. CARES soley relies on the support we receive from it’s volunteers, fosters, sponsors and donors. CARES is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization.
