Chatham Animal Rescue & Education Donations

The mission of Chatham Animal Rescue & Education (CARE) is to promote the health and safety of all dogs and cats in Chatham County, NC. CARE foster caregivers provide loving, stable homes to homeless cats and dogs, helping them become the best possible pets for their future forever families. CARE works with the Chatham County Animal Shelter to save the lives of unwanted cats and dogs, manages feral cat colonies, and serves as an educational resource. CARE's Lillie's Fund is a targeted spay/neuter program, subsidizing sterilization surgeries for pets owned by lower income families in Chatham County. CARE is a nonprofit animal welfare organization that has served the community since 1975 and relies on individual and corporate donors for support.

We deeply appreciate EVERY donation. Each donation--from the smallest to the largest--helps us create more happy endings for rescued cats and dogs. Your donation may honor or be given in memory of a person or pet. In addition, we'll send acknowledgment of your donation to the honoree or person of your choice.

Minimum donation amount is $5.00
