We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill animal shelter for abused and abandoned cats and dogs. We are located in Ruskin, Florida.

Most of the animals that come to CARE need just a few weeks of special care before they are ready for adoption to a good home. Others, who are older or sick or have suffered extreme trauma, become CARE ambassadors and find a special home at CARE for the rest of their lives.

The mission of CARE is to help bring about a time when there are no more homeless pets, and when every cat or dog ever born can be guaranteed a good home with a loving family.

In addition to a shelter, CARE also participates with Hillsborough County Voucher Program to offer a low-cost spay/neuter clinic in the hopes of deterring the homeless pet population in the Ruskin Community.
