Partnerships & Fundraisers

CARE is currently in the process of working to arrange partnerships to allow for individuals to take advantage of programs targeted towards helping the cats here at CARE while offering a benefit to those making use of the partnership itself. Below you will find info on our current partners and their offers, as well as amazing CARE heroes with special fundraisers that benefit CARE. As we make progress in this area you will see this list begin to grow, so check back often!

Faux Paws

Zoe with Faux Paws
Zoë approached CARE with her fundraising idea in the summer of 2006. This amazing child had been making sandals and selling them to benefit animal welfare organizations.

After a tour of the CARE sanctuary, Zoë announced she would like to donate the proceeds from her “labor of love” to the big cats of CARE. Soon after came Zoë’s second visit, this time with a check for hundreds of dollars. There are no words that can express our appreciation for Zoë. Thank you Zoë!

 

Joe Sent Me!

Joe is one of our CARE Heroes. Joe is one of our CARE Heroes. Joe, an 8th grader in Fort Worth, has been raising money for animal conservation for the past 7 years.

He also set up donation cans and a booth at his father’s store to collect money year-round and during special events like the Super Bowl. Thank you Joe!

Another sad announcement from CARE-yesterday we lost the uniquely handsome Eerie. Many of you know of Eerie's lifelong battles with a variety of health problems. The closest thing, in human terms, to what Eerie suffered from is Marfan Syndrome. Eerie wasWe need everyone's help welcoming Dahlia the llama to the CARE family!

He is a very talkative boy, usually yelling for someone's attention. He also really, really loves his safari balls. When he gets a new one, he won't leave it for days and will even sleep with his arms around it!   Solano's most recoSelina was boarded at the facility starting when she was 6 mos old, before the facility was CARE, by a very famous owner.

It's not because I don't have enough of them, it's because they are all so GOOD!! He is so ridiculously photogenic. It even seems like he is constantly posing waiting for his pictuLuca is T-R-O-U-B-L-E! He is one of the four "Babies" and he was a handful from day one!   Luca is known for sneaking up on people when their backs are turned, being extremely jealous of other cats when they get attention, and just generally being naughtyThis is Kate. Like all of our cats, 90% of the time she is calm, affectionate, and cute. However, she is still a tiger, and a feisty one at that! She can be a dirty fighter. She lives with Donya and Rascal, but years ago also shared her space with her sisThis handsome fellow is JP (or Peezer to his friends). He is the largest of the "Babies" and is quite striking! He is described by many as having an "old soul". He is always happy to see his people, has a good natured approach to life, and as we found outJezzabell is Elley's sister, they are almost identical! They both share a home with the magnificent Zeus.    Sometimes the sisters get into little arguments and Zeus will step in to play peacekeeper before things get to serious. We have recently opened upDid you know that Jakey (one of the four 7 year old "Babies") is CARE's living mascot?  When Baby Jake was born, he was the runt of the litter. But, his bold black stripes and dark orange coat so closely resembled that of CARE's official mascot, Jake, thaFire was born at the facility before it was CARE and was a boarding facility. She was a perfect baby, but at 8 weeks old she was given routine vaccinations and went into a coma. Thankfully she woke up, but she woke up blind.

Elley gets so excited at feeding time that she does a "hoppy dance" in anticipation of dinner. She also LOVES to be sprayed with water in the summer time! It's her favoritDonya is a very spunky tiger! She shares a home with Kate and Rascal. She is very masculine for a female, one of the largest girl tigers at CARE. Oddly enough she prefers men over women, which is strange considering CARE is mostly run by women. She also LChompers is CARE's heavyweight! In the winter we estimate that he weighs close to 700 pounds (although he has never been weighed, cause really it's not that easy to weigh tigers), making him the heftiest cat at CARE.  He is our gentle giant though, with aCARE's very own star personality, Cassie, loves to entertain! The more attention she can get, the better. From her squeaks and purrs to her acrobatics and, even basketball playing skills, she is a true ham. We don't even have to ask, we know that Cassie iBindi is CARE's newest resident. The 8 year old coati (a South American relative of the raccoon) is a funny little animal. She loves marshmallows, her toys, likes to climb and curl up in her blankets. She enjoys the occasional back and belly scratches andBeauty holds the title of oldest cat at CARE, she's 19! That's really old for a mountain lion. Her sister Beast passed away awhile ago, but they both had short, stubby tails (usually mountain lion tails are very long). There were a lot of theories going aFirst mom Allie, then daughter Allucia, now dad Archie!   Archie is the proud poppa of the Babies (Allucia, Luca, JP, and Jakey). He is also Allie's brother (hey-we don't judge here).   Archie can often be seen running  along the fence with his young lionSeems fitting that the day after we post about Allie, we introduce her one and only daughter, Allucia! Allucia was, and still is, dwarfed by her giant brothers (the other Babies-JP, Luca, and Jakey). Don't think for a second she gets bullied by the boys tRight after CARE took custody of Allie (and her brother Archie) in 2006, she gave us a HUGE surprise by giving birth to 4 cubs. We had no idea that giving her a home meant taking in a whole family! "The Babies" as they are still called, are all grown up a
