Companion Animal Rescue & Education - CARE was created by a group of caring individuals that saw the necessity of an open-admission animal shelter in Jefferson County, East Tennessee.
CARE’s motto ‘no animal left behind’ means we will never turn away a Jefferson County companion animal in need regardless of adoptability. By working with breed rescues and utilizing transports out of state, we pledge to never euthanize for time or space; instead, euthanasia is only done on those animals that are seriously ill/injured or due to behavioral concerns, cannot be safely re-homed.
