Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal-Related, Animals

Mission: COMPANION ANIMAL REHABILITATION EMERGENCY MEDICAL FUND (C.A.R.E. Medical Fund) was founded in 2013 and brings otherwise unadoptable companion animals to an adoptable condition by providing emergency medical funding and assistance to local shelter pets.

Results: For 6 years, C.A.R.E. has served the animal welfare community by saving almost 400 shelter animals that needed emergency medical care. Without the help of our organization, these animals may never have been able to be adopted and given their second chance.

Target demographics: Our organization saves shelter pets from euthanasia by providing the medical funding that may not normally be an option due to budget constraints or lack of funds.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We save an average of 50 animals annually by funding emergency medical services to shelters. Our Senior Animal Wellness Program saves approximately 10 senior dogs per year with senior wellness checkups.

Geographic areas served: the Phoenix metro area

Programs: emergency medical funding for shelter pets and a senior wellness program that help senior cats and dogs get adopted.

CARE is one of the most efficient and reputable non-profits out there. Unfortunately there are not many non profits who do what CARE does, or that have saved as many animal lives. CARE goes the extra mile, sometimes without being asked. Below is a photo of Audrea (CARE) and her personal rescue dog Finn.

So honored to be a part of this non profit. CARE went into a high kill shelter and saved many many lives by vetting sick and injured animals and making them adoptable. Their passion is undeniable!

So many animals given a second chance for a happy life thanks to medical interventions sponsored by CARE. Our kitty Jack (now one-eyed Jack) was the first, and a doggy toe operation last week the most recent. In between there have been five + years of lives saved. CARE run by a dedicated and extremely hard-working group of volunteers.

C.A.R.E is a wonderful, generous organization that gives where and when the need is absolutely necessary to save a life. I volunteer at a city shelter in Apache Junction, AZ, a poor community that struggles to support it’s human population much less it’s four-legged population.

Funds for the shelter are meager and C.A.R.E. steps in to provide funds for desperately needed medical care for the unwanted, lost and abandoned, but otherwise adoptable animals that cross the shelter’s doorstep. Without C.A.R.E’s financial support, adoptable pets would never find the loving, caring homes they deserve.

I've had many experiences with this nonprofit. They are one of my favorites! My pig Pixie came into Apache Junction Animal Control with a broken hoof and needing medical attention. She came to me as a Foster and I later adopted her.

C.A.R.E is a wonderful organization that helps shelter animals with medical issues. If not for C.A.R.E these animals would surely not make it out of the shelter. They are a vital part of our community . C.A.R.E finds forever homes for these less than perfect animals and brings families and animals together.

Our cat Jack was the very first recipient of a C.A.R.E. grant. He was found hanging around a dumpster behind the Paws and Claws Care Center in Apache Junction five years ago. One of his eyes was so badly damaged it could not be saved. C.A.R.E. paid for the surgery to remove his bad eye. He is a beautiful and loving cat, and has brought us more joy than I can say. Since then C.A.R.E. has treated many, many animals, giving them back their lives. Thank you C.A.R.E. for being there for Jack... and for us.

I met founder, Audrea Donnelly, while volunteering with Arizona Labrador and Giant Breed Rescue. I've followed her increasing contributions to the rescue community as she branched out into her photography business, Twelve Paws Photography, where she takes incredible images of adoptable dogs to help them get adopted more quickly, all for no charge. Then, I watched as she, on her own, created C.A.R.E. She finds animals in need, determines what needs to be done, raises funds, then assists in placing the animal in a loving adoptive home. She does this while maintaining her non profit photography business, maintaining ALGBR's website, taking charge of promoting these animals on social media, and taking care of a husband and two adorable boys. Audrea is the perfect example of love and passion in action. Her work with C.A.R.E. heals sick and injured animals, completes families who desire a pet, as she selflessly shares her time and talents with the animals and people who need help. Audrea has the effect of throwing a big boulder in a pond. The ripples of her dedication and hard work are so big that they reach the far edges of pain and suffering to provide hope and healing.
