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 >

It is Mueni’s 1st Week at CARE! Aside from being a beautiful human, check out her incredible bio:

Mueni is a Kenyan American scholar advocate with years of experience in racial justice, social activism, and evaluative research. She graduated from Huston-Tillotson University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. Then went on to earn a Master of Social Work graduate degree from Texas State University. She has a consistent history of membership and participation in professional academic associations and service organizations. She is a published writer and proud TEDx speaker committed to filling the gaps of current Western training and approaches that avoid issues of racial diversity and ethnic cultural differences. She prioritizes Black and other historically marginalized group liberation in all her professional and community contributions. Her focus on accountability can be seen in her efforts to acknowledge systemic and institutional oppression by centering these populations. Mueni is always willing to dive deeply into literature and lived experiences to suggest equity centered and research informed recommendations. Her work amplifies historically oppressed communities, promotes authentic multicultural dialogue, and creates cross-cultural communication which fosters awareness and healing.

We welcome her with open arms and an open mind! And thank you Petsmart Charities for all your support.
