INCLUSION = LIFESAVING

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.

CARE believes this effort is the defining challenge for the Animal Welfare field.
How does a humane movement move forward with love and compassion for all the people?

Ultimately, if we want people to adopt from shelters and rescues versus acquiring pets from other sources, we must become more inclusive and welcoming to all types of people and the varied lives they lead.

OUR METHOD
FOR CHANGE

For better understanding

To inspire and illuminate

For better outcomes

There is 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 and partnership in an effort to create a truly equitable movement for humans and their companion animals.
Being Inclusive is how we will clear our Shelters in the Future.
