CARE’s Research and Development team is data driven and equity centered. CARE is using evidence-based thought leadership that advances equity and reform for marginalized communities at the intersection of animal well-being and social justice.
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.
CARE will be hosting our 2nd annual CARE Caucus during Black History Month.
4 Discussions, Free, All Black Speakers, all in an effort to CHANGE THE 2%
If you don't know, African Americans only represent 2% of the Veterinary field. CARE is helping to raise that number. Last year we realized that not only is there a dramatically low number of Black Veterinary students, there is also a large number that are at risk of dropping out due to costs and financial hardships.
Since last year was so eventful we are hosting the Black History Month Series again! This year, completely different topics and speakers. All in an effort to CHANGE THE 2%!

Rocky is a small furry bear dog. He is classified as an Akita, but we call him Rocky, Fur Ball, Fuzzy, and sometimes Grocko (Guapo + Rocky). He likes to sit and think and observe. He also loves chasing his big brother and chewing on anything.
On our year long search for a second dog, we have been denied, ignored and questioned as if we were not an ideal dog family. And the last denial really hurt.
A few weeks ago, Nicole Rose Galvin, from Bailing Out Benji, messaged me that a mutual colleague of ours was fostering an Akita puppy and looking for a home. My immediate response was No. I’m not ready.
Nicole thoughtfully wrote back “I can see why you’re emotionally drained. I can’t believe the time you’ve had trying to adopt. I really hope you sharing your story will change the way people look at applications. I can tell you It’s changed my perspective!”
I kept thinking…Rocky needs a home. I don’t want to allow my feelings to prevent this adorable puppy from finding a home.
And then after making an update on facebook about our journey, a good friend Tim Freeman wrote “Damn. Humanity has a long way to go in being Humane and it seems as if we are headed in the wrong freakin direction. We must never give up nor give in. Jen, the U.S. needs people like you now, more than ever. So take some deep breaths and let's go back to work spreading compassion.”
So I reached out to the foster family where we learned about Rocky’s story.
