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
We desperately need your help, I know we seem to ask all the time but believe me if we didn't have to we wouldn't. Most of you may recall a sweet cat named Gabby that needed her mammary glands removed, she has had one side done and in a few weeks we need to have the other side done, the 1st side was $2400.00, we recently had a Animal Er call us asking could we save a dog that needed surgery for something it had swallowed and was stuck in his lower intestines,yup another $7000.00, then we have Smokey a sweet lab that unfortunately tested positive for heartworm and the treatment is another $2000.00 .Not to mention are normal vetting bills that are astronomical at this point..
I know you wonder why would we put ourselves in this position, but when you know an animal has a good chance of quality life how can you say "no'? We can't and fortunately you all understand this... below are some pictures of the pets we are asking for help with, and we have to add the 3 little kittens that at least 2 of them will need an eye enucleated, they are eating fine and we are hoping to get some weight on them before surgery.
