Community Animal Rescue Effort (C.A.R.E.™) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization with a mission to serve the communities of Chicago's North Shore by fostering and supporting healthy, positive relationships between people and companion animals. C.A.R.E. rehomes companion pets into safe, healthy, lifelong homes; serves as an educational and counseling resource; and works to reduce pet overpopulation. Read more about C.A.R.E. here.
HOW TO HELP C.A.R.E.
When it comes to supporting animal rescue, few can top the zeal of a group of first-graders in Winnetka. Over one week in April, Miss Marcie Teodoro’s class of 14 first-grade students at the Hubbard Woods Elementary School held a donation drive on behalf of C.A.R.E.
The Donation Drive was held in response to a classroom visit by C.A.R.E. volunteers Laura Andrews and Margaret Sinn-Pong to talk to the students about animal rescue.
