C.A.R.E. INTRODUCES THE ‘PRECIOUS PAYS IT FORWARD’ PROJECT

Community Animal Rescue Effort debuts a new way to help pets find forever homes through a ‘pay-it-forward’ fundraising program that covers adoption fees.

The seed for C.A.R.E.’s recently debuted “Precious Pays It Forward” project was planted back in 1992 when a C.A.R.E. adopter named Andrew adopted an orange tabby named Zucchini. The cat was Andrew’s best friend for 19 years. When Zucchini was in his later years, Andrew made a donation to C.A.R.E. in honor of his companion to subsidize the adoptions of 10 difficult-to-place C.A.R.E. cats.

When it comes to supporting animal rescue, few can top the zeal of a group of first-graders in Winnetka. Over one week in April, Miss Marcie Teodoro’s class of 14 first-grade students at the Hubbard Woods Elementary School held a donation drive on behalf of C.A.R.E.

The Donation Drive was held in response to a classroom visit by C.A.R.E. volunteers Laura Andrews and Margaret Sinn-Pong to talk to the students about animal rescue.
