Companions and Animals for Reform and Equity (CARE), in the interest of Human and Animal Well-Being, prioritizes and amplifies BIPOC and other Marginalized Voices using Narratives, Research, and Community-Centered Investments.
Our Method For Change
Community Wisdom, Community Solutions
CARE is supporting and investing in community leaders focused on sustainable and transformative solutions.
Community Animal CARE [CAC] is an innovative Public Health centered program designed to prevent and solve persistent challenges to Human and Animal Well-Being. CAC will deliver critical resources to community members led by Proximate Leaders. In particular, Access to Care and Prevention, Pet Behavioral Training, Pet Resources, Compliance Awareness, Lost and Found Pets, and Involuntary Surrender Prevention.
The Circle of Learning and Leadership is a unique BIPOC-led educational experience with an ecosystem centered on Racial Equity, Community Wisdom, and Access to Preventive Care. Our goal is to bridge the information gap between traditional Animal Welfare and marginalized communities.
Stories shape our vision of the world and often frame our perceptions and biases.
For this reason, CARE is producing and sharing stories that celebrate the diversity within human and animal well-being.

🐾 Michelson Found Animals is passionate about keeping pets with their families, and so are we at CARE.
💚 Pets are family, and we believe they should stay with their families, no matter the circumstances.
@FoundAnimals shares this unwavering belief, and together, we`re taking concrete steps to make it a reality for families of all backgrounds. Programs like the Pet-Inclusive Housing Initiative and the Michelson Institute for Pet Professions, are designed to increase access to resources for pet parents.
📣 “Michelson Found Animals is thrilled to partner with CARE, a dynamic and visionary organization, catalyzing change in historically-marginalized communities. At MFA, we share CARE’s vision that by fostering the intersection of human and animal well-being and championing inclusion, both people and pets in vulnerable communities thrive.” – Michelson Found Animals

❤️ LOVE Park, designed by Edmund Bacon and Vincent G. Kling, is a central location and iconic gathering spot in Philadelphia. The park features the famous LOVE sculpture, created by Robert Indiana, which was added to celebrate the nation`s bicentennial. The sculpture has since become a fixture in the park and was recently given a new makeover, returning to its original red, green, and purple color scheme.
