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 over 750 animals last year (2020) across the Clayoquot and Barkley Sound region. 2021 is shaping up to be even busier for this 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 this work requires hiking into remote areas and using specialized tools like a drone, netgun, and 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.
Sign up to be a volunteer or maybe even a monthly donor to help animals in need! Just find the "Get Involved" or "Donate" tab at the top of the page. Or just find our most recent fundraising initiative just to the right of this text!
Thanks for CAREing!
