Community Animal Rescue Effort (C.A.R.E.™) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization with a mission to serve the communities of Chicago's North Shore by fostering and supporting healthy, positive relationships between people and companion animals. C.A.R.E. rehomes companion pets into safe, healthy, lifelong homes; serves as an educational and counseling resource; and works to reduce pet overpopulation. Read more about C.A.R.E. here.

The C.A.R.E. Pet Food Pantry’s goal is to provide emergency food support for cats and dogs of residents of Skokie and surrounding communities. Program participants will receive dog and/or cat food that has been donated by area pet supply businesses. In addition to food, the C.A.R.E. Pet Food Pantry may also offer various pet supplies (leashes, bowls, toys, etc.) as available.
“We want to help families keep pets in their homes rather than giving them up to a rescue group,” says Angela Love, the C.A.R.E. Kennel Director and a longtime volunteer at the Irving Park Food Pantry.
