Sammie (December 2015)
Sammie (December 2015)

We adopted Sammi in July and since the day she arrived in our home, she has brought nothing but joy to us and her adopted brother Oscar. Sammi has grown into a beautiful, smart pup that was valedictorian of her recent training class! She had a super start with her CARE foster mom Laura, who did a fabulous job with Sammi in the short time she was with her.
CARE is a great organization that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others interested in adoption.
Ollie gets a family and Tika (December 2015)
Ollie gets a family and Tika (December 2015)

We adopted Tika as a four month old pup from CARE back in 2011, I think it was, and now we have added another CARE friend to our little family. As you can see in the photos ... We all love Ollie! He is calm and steady and such a beautiful cat. When Tika is busy in another room, he plays wild games with dangling feathers, paper bags and my apron strings. Tika is still learning how to be gentle with Ollie, so she has not yet played these cat games. I think really this is the tale of a Happy Beginning. We thank foster moms, Patti with Ollie, and Frances with Tika, for their kind and loving care!
Calvin's Best Friend (November 2015)
Calvin's Best Friend (November 2015)

We are so grateful to CARE for rescuing our beloved Calvin and allowing us to adopt him into our family! He's so sweet and playful, and he loves everyone. We love having him cuddle up in our laps and watching him wrestle with our other dog, Cosmo. He's a magnet in the neighborhood - everyone wants to pet him! We feel very fortunate.

Mo's New Life! (November 2015)

I just wanted to say how thrilled we are to have Mo (who was Lucy) as part of our family! She is a total doll and we feel like we won the dog lottery! So thank you for bringing Mo into our lives, and for all you do to help animals find homes. And for what it's worth, I really appreciate how thorough and clear the adoption process was. You guys have a great system in place!
Winston - A Home for Life (November 2015)
Winston - A Home for Life (November 2015)

Winston (was Winkie) has found his forever home with us and our pack. Win was found as a stray in the street twice in his 13 years. At 3.2 pounds it is amazing that he has survived. He is incredibly good-natured, given the hardships that he has endured. He is now in our home with other rescued buddies and enjoying every day. The picture shows Winston with his friend Chloe.
Mighty Ben (November 2015)
Mighty Ben (November 2015)

Ben (Bennett) is so smart! He learned how to use the doggie door and he loves playing outside in his fenced yard. When I got him we thought that he was part German Shepard but it turns out that he is actually a Belgian Shepard. Ben has learned all of his basic commands easily and we are now working on hard stuff, like putting his toys away and staying still for a longer time. Ben is very happy and healthy and is my best friend.
ThunderBear (November 2015)
ThunderBear (November 2015)

ThunderBear recently join us and is a wonderful addition to our family. He loves his Izzy Bee Weimaraner (age 8) and they play and share like they were raised together. He has a wonderful, loving spirit. We feel that we are blessed to be able to provide his Furever Home. Thank you for rescuing him and providing such wonderful care for him until he could come to us.
Marcus gets a home and a girlfriend! (November 2015)
Marcus gets a home and a girlfriend! (November 2015)

I just wanted to update you on how Marcus is doing and share some pictures. We are absolutely delighted that Marcus is part of our family. He is the sweetest boy ever and everyone adores him. He fits perfectly with our lifestyle and goes and has fun with everything we do.
He is enjoying life! He does great with Cookie and other cats he has met as well. He makes friends easily and even got to stay with one of his best friends when we went to Shakori grassroots music festival. Our friends said they would welcome him back anytime!
We completed the training class, and he did great! He enjoys getting out and about and meeting other dogs. Thanks to Laura for being his foster mom. She really did great with him.
Having a Baxter kind of day! (October 2015)
Having a Baxter kind of day! (October 2015)

My husband and I had been thinking about getting another cat for quite awhile but were very hesitant as we have a 17 yr old tabby who is very timid and had never had a positive experience with other cats. I met Nash (now Baxter), a tuxedo kitten, at PetsMart and not only did he love humans, he enjoyed being around other cats as well. Jill, a wonderful PetsMart volunteer was fostering this very special little boy. She put a lot of extra time helping us with the adoption. We now cannot imagine life without this sweet, playful, confident, loving and funny little guy. We have a new saying in our house "have a Baxter day" which means be nice to everyone and live life in a joyful manner. Thank so much to the caring people at CARE and PetsMart!
Love at First Sight - Ellie (October 2015)
Love at First Sight - Ellie (October 2015)

I was buying food for my four cats a few weeks ago at the PetSmart in Apex. I saw a 3 year old cat who just melted my heart. I took my two children back the next day, and although Jill from CARE was on her way out, she stayed and let us meet Ellie. Ellie's foster mom, Patti, went out of her way to meet us at PetSmart the next day so that we could bring her home as soon as possible. CARE volunteers/fosters are such special people! Because of them, Ellie has found a home where she is loved and our family has been blessed with a cat who was destined for us! Animals impact our lives so greatly, and people like Jill and Patti are the angels who help to make it happen! :)

Sterling is settling right in his new home...we are so happy to have him as part of our family. He is so sweet, loving, curious...just perfect
Isa-belly (September 2015)
Isa-belly (September 2015)

Isabel has been a huge burst of sunshine in our lives. Not only is she the best frisbee partner, but the best cuddle/nuzzle partner that we could have asked for. Because of Izzy, we've developed more laugh lines over the last several weeks than the last several years...and for that we are forever grateful to CARE.
Jolene (September 2015)
Jolene (September 2015)

We adopted Jolene at Petsmart in Apex about six weeks ago and she's the best kitty ever! So smart, affectionate and playful. I always wanted a lap kitty, ans she's perfect! Everyone in our family loves her, including our dog. A special thank you to volunteer, Patti, for staying late that day to make the adoption possible. JoJo is the best!
Lots of Loving for Lily (September 2015)
Lots of Loving for Lily (September 2015)

Lily made fast friends with Kobe, our 5-year-old pug, when she became part of our family. She loves to hang out with Kobe, Trixie (our 11-year-old lab mix) and Hal (our 4-year-old cat) in the kitchen when mommy is cooking. She also hangs out on mommy's office couch when mommy is working. Long walks with mommy and daddy are her favorite. Lily settled into the family as if she was always meant to be with us. She's looking forward to a couple of trips to the beach this fall, pictures of which will surely be added to her own photo album on mommy's Facebook page.
Willow on Watch (September 2015)
Willow on Watch (September 2015)

Willow is doing great and is very curious. We close her in at night and if we are gone but other than that she has the run of the house. She saw the vet yesterday and everyone fell in love with her. The ears were totally clear and the vet was happy with her health. She weighed 5 pounds.
She does love to play and has explored every inch of this house. She loves the jingle balls and a long thick shoestring. My daughter has been over and they've done great together. I am sitting here this morning just laughing at her. She is so playful and inquisitive. She even jumped up in my lap on her own for the first time this morning and purred up a storm. Last night I couldn't find her before I went to bed so decided to see if she did ok left out. She came into our room sometime during the night and slept with us. She really enjoys play time with my husband when he gets up.
We think we got a pretty special little girl!
Kasie gets a Family and a Friend (September 2015)
Kasie gets a Family and a Friend (September 2015)

In March, 2014 we adopted Emma from CARE. Olivia had done a wonderful job of fostering her and Emma fit right into our home. Emma was the only pet in our house and she flourished. She is a loving pet. After a year and a half and having had such a great experience with Emma, we thought about adopting another dog. Our main reservation was that Emma's has had some socialization issues with other dogs.

Recently we were casually looking at the CARE website and saw Kasie up for adoption. One of the qualities that CARE was hoping for was a home with another dog. The application was immediately completed and within a very short time we were called by Laura, Kasie's foster mom. The socialization issue was discussed and we decided to go ahead and let the two dogs meet and see how they got along.

Laura spent several hours with us, letting the two dogs get to know one another, little by little. At the end of our get together we all agreed to move forward and Laura dropped Kasie off a day or so later for a 2 week trial period to ensure that there were no significant issues or regrets. Laura called a number of times during that period to answer any question or give advice. This was very much appreciated and underscored how much love Laura and CARE have for their animals.

Within the two short weeks, Emma and Kasie have become like sisters. We now leave them to roam the house freely when we're out and there have not been any problems. There have been no fights and they are very tolerant of each other. They share toys and favorite napping spots.

While I'm certain there are many quality animal rescue organizations, we know that CARE and it's staff represent the best there is and is why when looking for another dog, we looked no farther than CARE.

Steve and Olive - siblings = love (August 2015)

We adopted twin tuxedo kittens, Steve and Olive and they have been such a wonderful addition to our family!
They are so much fun. They are always playful and so affectionate. We all love them so much.
Charlotte (August 2015)
Charlotte (August 2015)

We adopted our sweet Charlotte, who we have dubbed "Princess Charlotte," in July 2015. She is the cutest pup that has completely made herself at home with us. She gives the best kisses and loves to snuggle on the couch and watch us cook. She's made many other doggy friends and loves the neighborhood kids. Her foster mom, Laura, did an amazing job with her! She knows many commands and is bell trained. We are so pleased with Laura and CARE -- it is evident how much they love these animals. We couldn't have asked for a better first dog and look forward to many years of love and fun with our fur-baby!
Chester (August 2015)
Chester (August 2015)

Coming home and having Chester there waiting for me is such a wonderful feeling. I saw the old man (8 years old!) sitting in the window one day at Petsmart and instantly knew he needed a good home. Now he has a warm bed, plenty of food, and a cozy lap to curl up in when I'm reading. Adding Chester to my family was the best decision I've made, and had made my life all the better.
