Happily Ever After



Supporting CARE

Below are some of the ways you can help us help the animals! CARE is able to provide food, supplies and veterinary care for the many animals we rescue because of the contributions of kindhearted individuals and businesses. In fact, many of the expenses are shared by CARE's founders and volunteers. Although CARE is state-licensed, we receive no state funds and rely solely on donations from our members and the community.

Our biggest expense is vet care (we subsidize spay/neuter at $35 per dog or cat), then transport costs (gas, donations to other rescue groups who take dogs) and pet care (including food, medicine, bedding, toys, etc.).

Cash for Critters

You can drop off your used inkjet cartridges in Carbondale at Indian Creek Kennel, Dillinger's, or the Fish Net; or in Marion at The Pet Connection; or call us to arrange pick up.

We are looking for a volunteer in the CARTERVILLE AREA who would be willing to spend a couple of hours per week sorting, packing, and shipping used cartridges. If interested, email us or call 618-985-5304.

Donations towards a Sanctuary

It is our dream to one day have a sanctuary for all the homeless pets of Southern Illinois to live in until they find a new home. If you have either land or money to help establish a sanctuary, please contact us!
