CARE Southcoast is a volunteer-run, no-kill, 501c3 animal rescue/shelter servicing the Southcoast region of Massachusetts. All our rescue dogs are in foster care, while our cats can be visited at our shelter in Acushnet, Massachusetts. We also keep most kittens and some special needs cats in foster care. We focus our efforts on pets that wouldn’t do well in traditional shelters. Our mission extends to the Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) of feral cats, training of dogs with behavioral challenges, and education to avoid rehoming of owned animals. ...READ MORE
