Why Buy, When You Can Rescue & Adopt?

junebugandlitterOne of the primary reasons for KARE’s existence is to help animals from shelter environments with the training and socialization they need to find and stay in their new homes. Most of the animals we foster we do so because the animal has certain behavior(s) that either landed it in the shelter or a behavior the animal obtained while in the shelter that prevents it from being adoptable.

KARE supports local shelters through rescue and rehoming of “unadoptable” animals. Many great dogs and cats end up in shelters through no fault of their own. Family relocations, loss of homes, minor untrained behavior problems are three most common reasons for pet surrenders. With a good foster home environment and some simple training these animals become amazing pets in their new forever homes.

But don’t just take our word for it…

We love our Rescue Parents, as they’ve joined the KARE Family… See what some of them have to say about us! We take our work seriously and want you to be happy. We’re proud and honored to have received so many positive comments!

“Thank you KARE, from both Ann and myself, for making this all work out so well! Harleigh is settling in nicely, and just loving his new surroundings – especially the backyard playground.”

“Thank you KARE for another successful rescue and match!”

“Thank you KARE! We love Dallas and can’t imagine our family without him”

“Charlie (formerly Spot) has become a wonderful part of our family!! He likes to herd the cat, go to the beach and LOVES to play hide and seek with us! Thanks KARE for helping to bring him into our lives!”

“My husband and I recently adopted ‘Mick’ through NWKARE. Our experience was professional and seamless. Thank you! I immensely appreciate Kitsie [foster]. She is a gracious and experienced foster mom. Our appointment to meet the puppy was the day after Christmas. Even during one of the busiest and most energy draining times of the year she accommodated our need to spend time with the puppies so we could meet and get to know them. We are greatly delighted with our choice. He is adjusting very well. It is apparent from his integration into our family his care was managed with the utmost love from his birth. She made our experience totally incredible and because of her we are overwhelmingly enjoying our new ‘beagle boy’. He has a new name though, It is Bentley Thomas, son of Clementine. Sending along a heartfelt thank you!!!!
