Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Texas CARES is a non-profit animal welfare organization which provides for homeless and unwanted pets, primarily cats and kittens, in the Dallas-Plano area. We are a no-kill, all volunteer organization who rely on foster homes to house its animals until permanent homes are found for them.
Volunteering for TexasCares is one of the most fulfilling things I get to do. I'm always telling my friends and family to come volunteer here. It's not only the cats that make this wonderful, but also those who dedicate their time to coordinating everything as well. By far my favorite place and way to help my community!

If you love helping animals in need especially cats, this is a great organization to get involved with. It doesn't take too much of your time just 5 hours once a month and you can make a big difference for one of our kitties.
I've been volunteering with Texas CARES for almost 5 years and really enjoy it. Taking care of kitties and working to find homes for them is a great way to be part of the community. This small group is all volunteer and helps a lot of animals. The people are great to work with and it's a great chance for families to volunteer together. You can volunteer as little as once a month or every week or just for a specific event like taking santa photos at petsmart. Fostering kitties is great fun also.
I've made some great friends through this opportunity.
