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.

Bindi goes hiking with her family (August 2017)

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.

Keira and Hercules - it is a perfect match!
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.
Loving addition to our family (April 2017)
Loving addition to our family (April 2017)

We are happy to report, thanks to her great start from Robin & Bill, Maggie (aka Opal) is adjusting wonderfully to her new home. We are all in love.
Buzz (February 2017)
Buzz (February 2017)

Our family adopted our cat Buzz, the former Hershel 6 years ago. He continues to do well and has an unmarched personality. He is a constant source of affection and entertainment. We are thankful you allowed us the opportunity to have him in our home.
Francesca (January 2017)
Francesca (January 2017)

Francesca came into the CARE foster program from a colony of cats and kittens and owners who provided no veterinary care and left them to reproduce, resulting in over 20 felines on site. CARE stepped in to rescue all the kittens and tnr the female adults and one adult male. Francesca (Frannie) found a wonderful home and is living the life of comfort she deserves! This is what Francesca's adopter has to say:

I have been meaning to send you some pictures of our beautiful Frannie. We love her so much. She is the most affectionate kitty I have ever had.
Birdie (January 2017)
Birdie (January 2017)

I am a young widow of 6 years; I then spent the next 5 caring for my best friend who died in May. I also lost my 2 elderly canine companions over the past year. I've been very lonely! When I saw Birdie's picture and heard her story, I KNEW she was meant for me. We've been together for three weeks, but it feels like we've been companions for a lifetime. We are both celebrating new life now, with tons of snuggles and puppy playtime and more laughter than I remembered was possible. She entertains me with her comical exploits, including burying bones under sofa pillows with so much exuberance that she rolls off the sofa! She loves me with enthusiastic, jump-into-my-arms hugs. She loves to practice her commands and now offers me a "shake" every time she wants a treat! We go to restaurants and music venues and visit friends and watch movies and play ball, we are starting agility work together (just for fun!), and we will together learn to be a therapy team to work with patients who need some puppy love. I am so grateful for this little creature who has saved my life--and grateful to CARE for rescuing her for me!
