Schools, churches and social organizations are totally great for putting together collection drives for:
blankets and towels,
pet food (especially canned cat food),
collecting emails and mailing addresses for animal lovers who would like to receive our quarterly newsletters and "fur-folk of the month" emails
What else? Imagination, imagination, imagination! A scout troup held a blanket drive for us and some twin brothers sold their mom's most excellent jams and jellies at a group function. Some schools require students to do charitable projects and we can be just what is needed to help you get that credit.
About C.A.R.E. aka: Cat/Canine Assistance, Referral & Ed
(Sanctuary is located near Palmdale), P O Box 56631, Sherman Oaks, CA 91413, Littlerock, CA 93543, US
C .A.R.E.’s mission is to shelter and provide the cats and dogs who have come under our stewardship with a quality life via spacious living quarters, good food, veterinary care, love and gentle handling regardless of age or health or handicaps. We strive to carefully seek new loving homes for all cats and dogs, provide quality lifetime care for those who are not yet adopted, support individuals who have rescued homeless dogs or cats, educate the public and pet owners about spay/neuter, behavioral counseling, counseling on any issues that might arise and public outreach toward a more loving, responsible and permanent relationship with pets.
We operate a cage-free, no-kill sanctuary providing a home-sweet-home for over 300 orphaned cats and dogs in the high desert north of Los Angeles. Our sanctuary, established in 1998 and licensed by the county, consistently earns "A" ratings when inspected by the Dept of Animal Regulation. Some of our rescues are older, or suffer from chronic yet treatable diseases, such as diabetes and Feline AIDS.
How does CARE support animal welfare? By nurturing a community of homeless animals in a licensed, A-rated shelter, CARE demonstrates that responsible sanctuaries provide a truly humane alternative to current responses to pet overpopulation issues. CARE makes it possible for "unwanted" pets to live out their lives in peace and dignity.
