Review for Community Animal Rescue Effort Inc, Skokie, IL, USA
My husband and I adopted Whisky (aka "Rain"), a female Boxer-Mix, in February of 2016. At 9 months old, she was a handful (lots of energy), but exactly what we needed in our lives, having lost our elderly Rottie-Mix a few months prior. C.A.R.E. made the process seamless for us. After completing the online application, we were promptly contacted by phone and asked a few follow-up questions about our experience with dogs. We set up a meet and greet, wherein Rain was brought to our home by one of C.A.R.E.'s volunteers. Almost immediately, we knew she was perfect for us. She made herself right at home (on the couch) and showed us all her tricks, for treats, of course. A few days later, she joined us permanently. We are proud to have given her a forever home; but, as they say, "who rescued who?" We can't imagine our lives without Whisky, and we are so grateful to C.A.R.E. for making this rescue possible.
