2017 C.A.R.E. Faire Photos

Happy Howlidays and a Purry New Year! Come one, come all to the Holiday C.A.R.E. Faire. Bring your pup or kit to have their picture taken with Santa. Stock up on home-baked cookies and more in our famous Cookie Walk. Buy your gifts from our Silent Auction, crafters and vendors.

C.A.R.E. is asking Faire attendees to bring pet food donations as suggested entry to the C.A.R.E. Faire. Dry dog and cat kibble (unopened bags), canned pet food and cat litter are especially needed. Pet food will be used for adoptable pets or to support C.A.R.E.'s Pet Food Corner at Irving Park Community Food Pantry.
