They discrimate. First time I when there gave me 8 cans of cat food but one lady from Michigan got loaded in his trunk. 2nd time I went so little food they give you but others tons of can food. What I see is their regular client got more than new one.

Clean, upbeat, sweet staff. Totally legit! Of course, maybe my new cat is making me a little biased....

A wonderful group of dedicated people in a nice facility, all working together to help our furry friends recuperate and find good homes. Support by fostering, or volunteering, or participation in fund- raising... or all three!

This shelter is awesome for intake of cats. The catios are perfect for little cat personalities. The staff really cares and knows each and every cat!

I love their pet pantry! They offer good nourishment for my 3 pits. Sometimes it's enough, but you can't complain for what you get for free.

I cannot express the gratitude I have for C.A.R.E animal rescue! I had an outdoor cat that had been coming to see me every day since the beginning of June who was a very very friendly (what I presume is a cat that was dumped by its owner) cat that was deemed as feral since he was outside. After I had trapped him had him neutered and rabies shots done, I couldn't find a rescue to take him in, because every rescue is full to the brim with kittens. Through a friend and the diligent and AMAZING staff member Dianr, Oscar was allowed to come into their rescue and no longer live in my backyard. I will miss having my little outside buddy around, but I desperately want him to find his forever home with a loving family! THANK YOU C.A.R.E and DIANE!!!❤❤❤❤❤

Nothing feels better than giving a homeless pet a loving home

Very disappointed there was one person at the facility and she was very rude. The center was essentially a ghost town and no one at the front to greet potential adopters. Would recommend Wright way rescue over c.a.r.e.

When you have a specific pup in mind to purches, this location had adorable pups... And if they don't have a dog today, they most positively will have one romorrow.

Adopted "Blackjack" (Now Tucker) on September 21. He is an amazing 4 month old lab/? mix. Very well behaved. Mona was awesome. She worked with us to make sure he was a fit for our family. The facility is very large and clean. Dogs seem well cared for and any medical issues are treated. (He had kennal cough but was already in treatment and was gone within a day or 2 of us getting home home). She checks in every few days to see how he is doing. Highly recommend them if your looking to adopt. They are a great facility and you won't be disappointed.

C.A.R.E. refuses many animals in dire need in their area. They are suspicious of good people. Their coordinator Karin is anignorant and hostile person who turns off so many coming to adopt. While she is there we find there is no hope for bettering this place. C.A.R.E. does a disservice to so many needy animals out there. We do animal rescue and they have turned away so many animals, we find C.A.R.E. to be a waste of space.
