The C.A.R.E.4Paws staff was so kind to Ms. Darcy and me. I was a nervous new kitty mom before her spay as she was only a few months old. They took the time to answer my many questions and were so caring towards my baby girl. This service is AMAZING! So grateful for what they do.

My dear cat, Simba, needed vaccines and to be microchipped. I had just started a job after being jobless for 14 months. I was able to get my cat’s needs met for very little pay. I am thankful for that!

The work you do for our four-legged friends and pet owners and, in particular, those who have less means and need the extra support to care for their pets, is extraordinary.

I’m very grateful to C.A.R.E.4Paws for the help my dog Zoe and I have received with pet food and grooming at Alameda Park for about 14 months now. It’s a wonderful program and I’ve been treated beyond friendly.

If there was a C.A.R.E.4Paws in every city, this world would be a much better place. I don’t have the money or the credit to take Lui to a vet clinic but this way he gets help. Him being healthy makes my life even better!

Bringing my cat Dolly to C.A.R.E.4Paws’ mobile clinic was the best decision I ever made. Because of C.A.R.E.4Paws, she’s getting what she needs.
