The 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. Even though Geoff the cat has a lame leg and was found in Ukee, it took a few days to catch him using traps and some OG tactics including tippy toeing in our socks to sneak up on him. More 👉

HELP HER HERD
Make a Difference Today
Mooshu is a spokescow for her unique herd on Meares Island. She had to leave the island due to a congenital situation with her front hooves. She is doing well and receiving daily physio. However, her herd needs a new shelter to stay warm, dry and healthy. You can help Mooshu by helping her herd. Please donate today by 'buying' one of her digital photos below. Goal: $25,000!
