Critter Adoption and Rescue Effort, Inc - C.A.R.E

C.A.R.E. is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter for abused and abandoned cats and dogs. They are located in Ruskin, Florida.

Most of the animals that come to CARE need just a few weeks of special care before they are ready for adoption to a good home. Others, who are older or sick or have suffered extreme trauma, become CARE ambassadors and find a special home at CARE for the rest of their lives.

The mission of CARE is to help bring about a time when there are no more homeless pets, and when every cat or dog can be guaranteed a good home with a loving family.

“Donations to this shelter are always needed – as a non-profit, no kill shelter – donations are what keep this worthwhile effort going.  We have volunteered here and know how great the need is and how hard they work caring for a lot of furry campers without homes.  If you have thought about adoption, please check them out.”
