About us

C.A.R.E. was established July 2, 2007, as a non-profit 501(c)3 volunteer organization.  Our mission is to alleviate animal suffering by aiding abandoned, abused and neglected animals; reducing overpopulation and disease; and assisting responsible pet owners in meeting the needs of their own companion animals. We believe in the humane and ethical treatment of all animals.

100% of C.A.R.E. funds are used to maintain our rescue animals and to assist low-income families whenever possible. Assistance for responsible pet owners is available through our spay/neuter voucher program, by providing low-cost animal vaccinations, and helping the elderly and those with disabling illnesses provide adequate containment and shelter for their pets.

Please note that C.A.R.E. does not accept companion animals in cases where the rightful owner no longer wants his pet.  We will, however, provide assistance to responsible owners as our resources permit. If you need to find a suitable home for your pet, we are happy to provide you with suggestions and contacts, provided you maintain custody and control of your own animal.  Please remember that the health and welfare of your pet is your responsibility and opportunity. We need YOU to take care of yours, so WE can help the neediest of all companion animals — the dumped, neglected, abused and abandoned animals.

Our long-term goal is to establish a proper animal shelter to support the towns of Strawn, Mingus and Gordon and the surrounding community.  Until we procure funds,  we rely on foster yards and volunteers to provide temporary care for rescue animals.  Once animals are safely secured in foster yards, we seek permanent adoption arrangements with approved families.

We Need YOU!

We are a non profit organization and all of our funding comes from donations from loyal supporters like you.  With the help of Palo Pinto county, the cities of Strawn, Mingus and Gordon we can do what we do, barely.  It is, well, difficult at best to do what it takes to find these animals, get their medical needs met and get them to new homes.  The monitary needs are enormous.  Our animals are now spread out over several boarding sites and with the help of our loving foster homes, it gets done.  Our goal, one day, is to have a facility, away from the cities, to house all of our animals.  A large fenced compound with an outdoor area where they can play together.  An indoor area where they can get in out of the extreme cold and Texas heat.  A cat room where cats can be cats.  A room where we can hold monthly spay and neuter clinics for the communities with a recovery room.  And finally an office room where we can do the mountains of paperwork required for each animal.  That’s our goal.  If anyone has such a vacant facility please let us know.  It doesn’t have be exactly like that.  We are quite handy and resourceful.  We have to be, we are all volunteer you know.  We are not making a dent in the number of animals running loose, but we are here and we are trying to make that dent.  Someone has to care and we do.  We are CARE.
