A Network of Compassion
CARE Network is a non-profit animal rescue and outreach organization on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
We primarily work with dogs, cats, and their human families but we also help any other animal in need.
Animal Care at the End of the Road...
CARE Network helped hundreds of animals in the last year across the Clayoquot and Barkley Sounds region. 2022 so far has been even busier for our volunteer-based team who will help any animal in need: dogs, cats, eagles, raccoons, pigeons...
Our animal emergency response team travel by van, boat and even plane if necessary to help animals in distress wherever they are in the region. Often our work requires hiking into remote areas and using specialized tools like a drone, netgun or improvised (DIY) gear.
These tools help but it is most often good ol' tenacity that gets the job done. Sometimes it takes a few days using traps and some OG tactics including tippy-toeing in our socks to sneak up on injured or missing animals to help them.
There are so many ways to help animals in need: sign up to be a volunteer or maybe even a monthly donor. Foster homes for cats and dogs are always in high demand and it is such a wonderful way to help but not to commit full-time. Find all the info on the "Get Involved" or "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
Thank you so much for CAREing!
