5K Pet Run/Walk – Call for Sponsors

Thank you so much for being a supporter of C.A.R.E.! Businesses and generous people like you have helped us save an average of 50-75+ dogs annually and place them in permanent and loving homes since 1992.

We apologize for the short notice, but we were recently approached by Los Lagos Golf Course to co-host a ‘5K PET RUN/WALK” on Saturday, April 14, 2018 starting at 7:00am. We haven’t done a walk/run fundraiser in quite some time so we jumped on the opportunity to partner with our new friends at Los Lagos Golf Course. The Run/Walk will start on the Coyote Creek Trail and then traverse on the cart paths throughout the beautiful golf course in San Jose. Runners with the quickest times will receive medals and all registered participants will receive shirts and refreshments and visit vendor booths. Proceeds will directly benefit C.A.R.E.!

Five is the Lucky Number

It was a cool, crisp Sunday morning. A team of C.A.R.E. Volunteers had organized and converged upon a home in San Jose to rescue a litter of pups, who were all living outside, were getting larger every day, and becoming an unwanted nuisance to the families living at the residence.

Final Chapter – The Story of Tia’s Rescue

For those of you who have followed Tia’s story from the beginning, we bring you “The Final Chapter”!

But for those of you just joining us, a quick recap: We posted a story about “Tia”, a 5 year old female pit bull terrier who we rescued from the San Jose Animal Shelter in August. She was in poor shape and needed medical assistance to become healthy enough to be placed for adoption into her new home. We had so many responses from animal lovers near and far, who donated funds for her medical care. Dr. Kiran Rapal DDS and her staff conducted a fundraiser with the proceeds that helped to put a huge dent into Tia’s medical bills. She was placed for adoption in mid-October and we had several people interested.

Follow Up – The Story of Tia’s Rescue

We posted a story about Tia, the female pit bull, who was found around Anderson Lake on a hot day and brought in to the shelter by the people who found her. We worked with various groups and rescued Tia from the shelter and then we worked hard to treat her multiple medical conditions over the last 2 months to get her healthy and ready for adoption.

The Story of Tia’s Rescue

It was an extremely hot day in July. Two C.A.R.E. volunteers had made arrangements with San Jose Animal Care and Services to pick up a couple of dogs that were on their Rescue List.

While sitting in the waiting room, a nice couple was sitting across the room with a tired and tattered female pit bull, who was later named Tia. They had found Tia wandering around Coyote Lake in the heat of the day. It was obvious she had a litter of puppies recently, but no puppies were in sight and it appeared that Tia had been surviving on her own for some time.

Great Ending!

Hi C.A.R.E. Friends!

We just couldn’t resist sharing this wonderful rescue story below with you! While this tale starts with the local shelter vet, we are proud to announce that Luna was picked up from San Jose Animal Care & Services by C.A.R.E., was fostered by Sheilly Nayyar and her family while she recuperated for a few weeks, and has now found her forever home this past weekend!

We love great endings and we love knowing that even though Luna had a shaky start in life, that she will now be loved and have doggie companions and a great family to spend the rest of her life! We’ll post pictures in a separate post. Thank you for sharing this story about Luna and for supporting us at C.A.R.E.!!!

The C.A.R.E. Blog is Back

It’s been awhile since we’ve blogged but we are back and ready to share adoption stories, available dogs and their tales, volunteer spotlights, tips and tricks, and much more. Our plan is to blog every few weeks so be sure to stay in touch.

If you have adopted from C.A.R.E. and would like to share your story with others, please let us know. All we need is a few minutes of your time for a quick interview, either by email or phone, and some pictures of your adorable dog.

We are very excited about the recent changes at C.A.R.E.
