Thank you for your generous support!
Since C.A.R.E.'s inception on 6/27/2007, 857 transports, 16,616 dogs and 1,012 cats have been saved through transport. (Total Animals Moved to Safety in C.A.R.E. vans or with C.A.R.E.'s Financial Assistance = 17,628 through April of 2013) C.A.R.E. volunteers have driven over 861,000 miles to save the animals through April of 2013.
The mission of C.A.R.E. is to arrange and provide safe transportation for domestic animals who are going to approved rescues and adoptive homes. As Jake's Funds allow, C.A.R.E. will help with veterinary expenses, spay/neuter assistance, and food/supplies to shelter and rescue animals.
Twice a week, C.A.R.E. arranges and provides the safe transportation of dogs and cats from high-kill shelters in Colorado and neighboring states that are going to rescue groups or adoptive homes. C.A.R.E. works with over 110 rescue organizations who commit to taking the homeless animals into foster care for proper assessment and placement. An average transport consists of renting multiple vans in various locations to move approximately 20 animals. At this time, C.A.R.E. is primarily transporting animals from Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, New Mexico, and Nebraska. We are also transporting animals from rural Colorado shelters.Our geographic focus is continually expanding to help animals in high kill shelters.
Donations and grants are needed to cover the rental van charges, gasoline, and the purchase and maintenance of transport supplies. It costs C.A.R.E. an average of $35 to transport an animal to safety.With outside donations to C.A.R.E., the rescue groups receiving the animals will have more funds available to cover their necessary veterinary and foster care expenses and a resource for low income community spay/neuter education and funding.
C.A.R.E.ís primary focus is transport of companion animals.Our other supporting services include Jakeís Fund, solicitation and distribution of food and supplies to shelters and rescue groups, and a resource for community spay/neuter education and funding.Each service is described on specific pages linked at the top of this home page.
Thank you for your support and compassion of homeless animals.
