Mission Statement

Funded entirely by private grants and donations from individuals who love animals - wonderful people like you - CARE rescues at-risk dogs and cats without regard for their health status, age or adoptability, and seeks responsible homes for them. Unlike most rescue groups, we have no time limits. Whether it takes 7 days or 7 years, our rescues have a home for life!


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.

Would you recommend C.A.R.E. aka: Cat/Canine Assistance, Referral & Ed?

by Mary Z. from Sherman Oaks, CA (Administrator for this Organization) (2013-08-14 12:05:46.0)
I have been with C.A.R.E. since its very beginnings in 1992 and since the opening of its strictly no-kill sanctuary in 1998. The people behind the name really do try to walk-the-walk. We care for and respect all creatures (even humans!), but cats and dogs are our special people. C.A.R.E. has been in existence 20 years now and is looking for kindred spirits to come walk-the-walk with them - to continue the dream and reality that is C.A.R.E. on another 20 years or until there are no more homeless pets!
