The CARE Center provides education and resources that foster a mutually supportive bond between companion animals and people. Through our classes and programs, we strive to give people a better understanding of their pet’s basic needs, open the lines of communication between companion animals and their people, and keep pets in their homes.

The Helping Paw Fund keeps families together. By providing financial assistance for the expense of illness or injury, we help people and their animal companions and sustain the bond between them. Numerous animal companions – cats, dogs, a rabbit and a guinea pig – and their families have benefited from our program. Please consider a donation to the CARE Center so that we can continue this important work. Use the Donate button above or send to our address on the Contact Us page.
