• 55+1 Birthday Bash

    PegBlueSolo3Last year at this time, our CARE friends and supporters helped save 55 dogs in the month of February in honor of my 55th Birthday. This year we would like to do it again and save 56 dogs during this 29 day period. CARE designates February as our spotlight month to focus on the importance of fostering a dog to save a life. Please help us in our efforts to rescue 56 dogs and give them a chance at a new beginning.

    Here is how you can help:

    * Adopt a dog through CARE during the month of February.
    * Open your home for even a temporary period to foster a dog in need.
    * Recommend us to a friend or co-worker to foster or adopt a dog.
    * Donate $56.00 in honor of the 56 lives we are trying to save…and WILL save with your help!
    * R.S.V.P. for Peggy’s 55+1 Birthday Bash. Join us from 6- 8pm on Thursday, February 25th at Whiskey Cake to celebrate the success of a record saving month. The cost is $56.00 per person. And you can register at www.caretx.org or email me at pbrink@caretx.org.

    I am challenging all our friends, fosters and supporters of CARE to join me in making this the best month ever for a shelter dog.

    Gwen is ready for a forever home!!

    Call/ text: 615-973-1161

    Are you looking for a devoted, beautiful and adventurous girl to add to the family? Look no further! My name is Gwen and I am a 10 month old Hound puppy weighing around 30 pounds. A nice lady found me wandering alone through San Antonio, TX. She didn't want to leave me hungry and cold so she took me home and asked CARE rescue if they could help me find a forever home. I am an awesome little girl. I am very fast and athletic, so I would love an up beat family looking for an on the go buddy. I will do well with training and exercise as I grow so I can be the best pup ever. I can't wait to meet my forever family!

    Happy Tails: Anthony kna Scooby in San Antonio!

    Hello everybody. How are you? I am doing fantastically well. I am living in San Antonio and I am enjoying every minute of my wonderful life. I travel, I go to the beach, I hang out with my family, I go out on walks, AND I have a smashing outfit for every occasion. What else can a dog ask for?

    This is all thanks to CARE and their generous volunteers. I was a pocket pup when CARE rescued me along with my 3 siblings. We weighed about 1 lb and we had severe ringworm. Miss Trisha Mencio, my foster mommy, loved us and took care of us until we were big and healthy enough to go home. I will always have her in my heart ! Now I hope she sees how well I'm doing and how happy my life is...thanks to her.

    Your friend, Scooby
