To discover, support, and elevate BIPOC community leaders using a Human and Animal Wellbeing [HAW] model,
in an effort to keep pets at home and uplift their human companions.

Our Method For Change


CARE Center Partners are located throughout the United States. Potential partners are located in every underserved BIPOC community. We know in many instances, community members, and their Proximate Leaders, are already caring for pets and people around them with few resources. CARE Centers’ mission is to support and amplify community leaders trying to keep pets and people together.

The CARE Center model is not prescriptive, CARE Center Partners range from traditional Rescues to dog behavioral training. We’re here to support our partners passions.

CARE is fortunate to have incredible staff members who live and work amongst our CARE CENTER Partners. Our internal staff work with Proximate Leaders to ensure resources, technical assistance, and funding is strategically aligned with the needs of our CARE CENTER Partners.

The CARE CENTER model will not always include a Building.
Some CARE CENTER organizations are focused on Access to Care via Transport Services. Other organizations are focused on community awareness and Animal Care and Control, Spay & Neuter, Puppy Mills and Adoption. While some organizations will deliver services from within a building. CARE CENTERS will be designed around solving and preventing problems, so their shape and size will vary to meet their community’s unique challenges and desires.
