Happy 2023! We’re excited for what’s ahead this year and also about our record-breaking 2022.
Spayed/neutered 2,300 dogs and cats, up from 2,025 in 2021!
Assisted 1,700 pets with veterinary care.
Provided 18,000 vaccines, flea treatments, deworming medications, microchips and nail trims during our walk-in Pet Wellness Clinics—an increase by 3,000 such procedures in 2021.
Distributed TWO tons of pet food weekly and more than one million pounds of pet food total since the pandemic, while also providing critical supplies and temporary foster care as well as grooming for pets of community members experiencing homelessness.
Expanded our Mobile Community Medicine & Spay/Neuter Outreach to San Luis Obispo (SLO) County with a program called Snip & Chip SLO in collaboration with SLO nonprofits Animals in Need Fund and Animal Shelter Adoption Partners.
Held our first annual Walk Against Abuse at Elings Park to support Safe Haven and pet families exposed to domestic violence.
Promoted compassion for all living beings while working with youth through Paws Up For Pets…this includes the talented young artists who paint wonderful pieces for our Pet Portrait Project.
We could not have accomplished all of this without YOU, our donors, grantors, sponsors, business and nonprofit partners, volunteers and staff. Thank you for being there for C.A.R.E.4Paws and the community in such a big way!
