WE ARE FOCUSED ON TRANSFORMING THE ANIMAL WELFARE INDUSTRY WITH EVIDENCE-BASED INCLUSION TRAINING, INSPIRING NARRATIVES, AND COMPASSION.

We believe in the inherent goodness and dignity of all people. Ex-offenders, People without Homes, Seniors, Renters, Families with Small Children, and Yes, People of Color. To that end, CARE’s mission is to bring diverse voices to the Animal Welfare industry while also advocating for a more inclusive path to pet adoption. CARE is using evidence-based tools and narratives to inspire organizations to be more inclusive and less biased. All in an effort to save more companion animal lives and elevate the value of all human life.

OUR METHOD
FOR CHANGE

For better understanding

Because the Messenger Matters

To inspire and illuminate

For better outcomes

We’ve estimated a 20% adoption gap between White Americans and African Americans.

Closing the gap is possible, but it requires reaching-out to people of color and seeking their leadership in the lifesaving work of Animal Welfare.

But first, we must confront the nature of bias in the Animal Welfare field. See the Harvard Implicit Bias Report here >

Our friends at @atlantahumane Atlanta Humane Society have a variety of employment opportunities available right now. There are openings in the animal care, admissions, animal logistics, veterinary care, community outreach, and development teams. They’re dedicated to having a diverse workforce and providing staff training and growth opportunities to further their careers in animal welfare. Being part of their team is a fantastic way to shape animal welfare in Georgia and throughout the southeast!

Atlanta Humane is one of our amazing Veterinary Partners for our CARE DARE this weekend. Thank you Dr. Kooyman and everyone there for volunteering your time. As a result, CARE and Tito's Handmade Vodka will donate back to the org for the surgeries performed to cover medical costs.

We met Mindi about 5 years ago while working on an anti puppy mill campaign. She was one of those people you should all know. Her organization is at the forefront of puppy mill awareness and advocacy and we appreciate their ongoing support and the future partnerships we will be sharing. Thank you @bailing_out_benji
