Mission Statement

Before people understood the importance of enrichment for captive animals, cages were typically small and barren with cement floors and metal bars, animals were isolated or in mismatched pairs, and vacant stares reflected back at the people who came to visit. The boredom that some of these animals experienced would frequently lead to hopelessness and madness. The fear that they experienced would often turn into aggression. Enrichment is an animal husbandry principle that seeks to enhance the quality of captive animal care by identifying and providing the environmental stimuli necessary for optimal psychological and physiological well-being. The mission of The C.A.R.E. Society is to identify sanctuaries and wildlife rehabilitation centers that are already placing an emphasis on enrichment for its captive animals, so that we can perform enrichment studies, conduct enrichment training courses, and assist in raising funds for specific enrichment needs of animals in captivity.

Description

The C.A.R.E. Society is a non-profit organization that performs enrichment studies, provides enrichment education, and raises funds for enrichment tools for animals in captivity.
