Our Mission

Cat Adoption and Rescue Efforts, Inc. (C.A.R.E.) is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to the rehabilitation, care and adoption of cats and kittens rescued from euthanizing animal shelters in Richmond, VA and surrounding areas. And, accepts on a limited basis, animals from alternative sources. We are committed to the highest principles of humane care and obtain professional medical treatment for all animals in our systems.

Adoption Policy

Our adoption process is simple but thorough. You select a feline who touches your heart and fill out an adoption application at Filling out the application is the quickest way to start the adoption process and is required of all adoptions. After review and approval by our volunteers, you will be contacted by an adoption consultant to discuss the adoption process. Please allow a few days for this process, as CARE is an all volunteer rescue – each of us is giving our own personal time and we appreciate your patience. You will then be in contact with the foster to discus and meet your chosen cat/kitten. Should you decide to adopt, an adoption contract is then signed with an adoption donation attached (this donation helps defray the medical costs incurred)

Each cat/kitten has spent its rescued time in a private home in foster care being loved and assessed for temperament and personality, needs, likes and dislikes. Our adoption counselors and fosters will help you to adopt a feline that will fit well and become a permanent member of your family.

See : Available Cats: on our website: for more information.
