Lexi (November 2017)
Lexi (November 2017)

Almost 11 years ago we adopted our Lexi (previously known as Matilda) who has been the most perfect addition to our family. She grew up tiring the kids out running back and forth in the backyard, eating one too many treats they would sneak her, and being their pillow at night. Now they are grown, and have kids of their own who she is so gentle and patient with. Lexi is incredible silly, playful still at 11 years, and so very intelligent and i can't imagine our last 11 years without her. In our household we will forever be thankful to CARE for giving us our precious girl!
Appreciation of Ellie! (October 2017)
Appreciation of Ellie! (October 2017)

I feel like God was watching over our family recently. Our cat Ellie (5 years old, adopted from CARE 2 years ago) was not feeling well which prompted me to take her to the vet. After some scary initial prognoses, it turns out Ellie is prone to inflammation, but she is going to be OK!! We already knew how much we adored our Ellie, but the recent scare made us appreciate and love her more than ever! Ellie's CARE family was there to support us throughout our emotional rollercoaster. Thank you to Sue, Patti, and everyone at CARE for saving and supporting our Ellie and so many other precious cats and dogs! The thought of what you do on a regular basis makes our hearts feel warm. Our lives would not be the same without our Ellie! My 18 year old son has said 1,000 times, "Thank God Ellie is OK. I love her SO much." We all do!!
Mila (October 2017)
Mila (October 2017)

Mila joined me in March 2017, 6 months after I had to say good bye to my first CARE dog. She can never replace "Leo" but she has brought tremendous joy to this house. She is a happy , peppy little girl who loves to cuddle and ride in cars. She adapts to any situation with enthusiasm and a wild tail wag. Thank you to CARE for all you do to find forever homes.

Rikku Comfy with her New Family (October 2017)

Our experience with CARE has been amazing and we ended up with best gift we could have ever asked for! Our new baby girl Rikku! We love her dearly and we are so happy that even her big brother accepted her so quickly. Thank you so much for everything! Our family is so happy and complete.
John Boy becomes 'JB' (September 2017)
John Boy becomes "JB" (September 2017)

The middle of August I adopted John Boy from CARE. Up until that time, Patti had been raising him and he was just about 4 months old, 4 pound, little buff colored kitten. When I first got him he would stretch out across my chest when I was in the recliner watching TV. Now, a month and a week later he is 8 pounds and prefers to watch TV from my lap, or just sits down in front of the TV to watch the action; of course that is when there are no rabbits or squirrels outside the window to watch. Since I just moved to NC in August I have needed somethings from Amazon and John Boy (or JB as I call him) makes sure I didn't miss anything in the box... JB is always happy to see me when I get home from work but he does have a problem sharing the bathroom... he likes to hog the sink!
Gidget gets a fur brother (August 2017)
Gidget gets a fur brother (August 2017)

We absolutely LOVE Gidget! She's doing great, loves her new fur brother. They play all the time! She's a great cuddler and is very submissive (she listens). Laura was very thorough at investigating us to make sure Gidget went to a good safe home. If we are in the market for another fur child, we will definitely work with CARE.

Here is a picture of Bindi and her family at Hanging Rock. Not a day has gone by during the last year that we have not been so glad to have this sweet, energetic and funny pup in our family! We thank CARE for all that you do to give dogs love and good lives.
Hailey (August 2017)
Hailey (August 2017)

Adopting a rescue dog from CARE was such a wonderful decision. She was taken excellent care of, examined by them and a vet, spayed, given all her vaccinations, and was ready for a forever home. We have never adopted a rescue dog, and we didn't know what a great dog we were to get. Hailey made herself right at home and loves everybody. I needed someone to cuddle with, and she is it! Still has some puppy habits like running around with our previous dog's toys and stealing shoes, but is house-broken and just a delight!
Parker (August 2017)
Parker (August 2017)

We had an excellent experience with adopting Parker from CARE. Parker's foster mother Laura gave tons of great information prior to the placement and was supportive during the entire process! We are very happy to have Parker a permanent part of our family and love him to pieces!
Pretty tabbies! (August 2017)
Pretty tabbies! (August 2017)

Here's an update on two cats that we adopted through you late last year. Pony (formerly Emma) is on the left; she was a Chatham County Shelter adoption through CARE. Winnie (formerly Agnetha) is on the right; she was part of the Abba quartet of kittens fostered by CARE. They both have the rule of the house and we love having them here. We're so happy that we could give them a good home and are very thankful for everything that CARE does to give these animals a better life.
Penny goes to California! (August 2017)
Penny goes to California! (August 2017)

We adopted Penny (formerly Katie) back in 2011. We have since moved to California. We were told back then that she has a sister named Millie, who was also adopted. Penny is happy and healthy; here she is enjoying a ride in the car. She is quite smart, she knows how to roll down the window by herself.
Speedy gets a home and a friend (August 2017)
Speedy gets a home and a friend (August 2017)

This spring, my family was really excited to get Speedy, a 4 year old, orange tabby from CARE. Speedy was very shy and nervous. We loved him so much we asked CARE for a kitty companion for Speedy, and Jena, a 14 week Tuxedo and bundle of energy joined our family in July. Jena is super friendly and playful and has helped Speedy to be more outgoing. Our four year old son, Jason is learning responsibility for taking care of his kitty siblings and the fun and joy of playing with them.
Jagger (July 2017)
Jagger (July 2017)

I first noticed Jagger last December at Pet Smart, when he put his paw on the glass. He looked so friendly, plus he was grown and settled-exactly what I was looking for! He had had a rough life that past year, after getting lost from his family. but CARE nursed him back to health and fate put us together. He is such a good kitty-he doesn't even get on my new white sofas! Sweet, clean, well behaved-perfect for me in my life as a widow.
Adele and Emily (July 2017)
Adele and Emily (July 2017)

This is a Happy Ending story of two dogs who came to CARE with serious medical issues and are now living happy lives with their adoptive families.Adele and Emily were adopted by the same extended family and are shown running and playing on the beach.

The bottom left picture shows Adele when she came to CARE with serious skin problems and the bottom right photo shows Emily in splints, after she came to CARE with both front legs broken.

Thanks to CARE, the medical care they received from Dr. Tysor and the life that their adoptive families are providing, the girls are living wonderful lives after difficult starts.

Indy in his new home (July 2017)
Indy in his new home (July 2017)

We have adopted Dallas renamed "Indy" for independence day. He is happily adjusting so well.He is eating and arching that little back and batting a paw at a 70 lb Weimaraner and joyfully running away. His cat companion has calmed down and is getting curious about him. His precocious personality is adorable and so fun. Lap cuddles and purring are the order of the day. Thank you C.A.R.E.
Yoko - One Happy Girl! (June 2017)
Yoko - One Happy Girl! (June 2017)

After adopting Yoko, our lives were instantly better. Our family was shocked to see how her personality changed after adopting her. She went from a very calm, and relaxed dog to an active, hyper and happy puppy. We love every second we have with her and we hope that other dogs in the shelter are able to find amazing families!
Please note, Yoko was adopted from Chatham County Animal Services.
Arya and her new Family (May 2017)
Arya and her new Family (May 2017)

We already can't imagine life without our sweet Arya (originally Rumor). We are so grateful to Linda and to C.A.R.E. for taking care of her before she found her way into our family!
Brother and Sister get new loving home (May 2017)
Brother and Sister get new loving home (May 2017)

Lucy (Tulu) is still a tad but skittish but she socializes well when she wants to. She even hangs out with the grandkids in the same room. She lets me pick her up. I do it to help her get more comfortable, and just hold her for a moment.

Charlie (Freddy) has exceeded what I thought. He loves to be petted and often purrs. He gets along well with my husband who often plays with the fishing rod. Charlie gets so exhausted playing that he pants like a dog.
