2 Statements & Search Criteria Mission The mission of Capital Area Rescue Effort is to rescue dogs from abuse and neglect situations and work to pair them with loving, permanent homes through a thorough and rigorous adoption procedure. Background CARE began as a sanctuary for dogs that were difficult to adopt, often due to illness or physical disabilities. While continuing this important mission, CARE expanded its efforts to rescue adoptable dogs that would otherwise face euthanization and find caring homes for them. Impact CARE's accomplishments over the past three years show a steady growth in the number of dogs it has been able to impact. Growing from placing 81 dogs in new homes in 2012, to rescuing and placing 187 dogs in new homes in 2014, we have also obtained veterinary services for these rescued dogs, offered weekly pet adoption stand events at area pet stores, and, provided sanctuary for over 30 abused and disabled dogs in 2014 alone. Additionally, we serve our community offering guidance and support to families who have lost dogs, who may need to rehome dogs, or who may require counseling and assistance to keep their animals during times of uncertainty. Our goals include improving our visibility in the Richmond animal rescue community, increasing fundraising efforts through the use of grants available from foundations and trusts to begin to plan for an animal sanctuary facility in the metropolitan Richmond area, begin to utilize our new website to promote our efforts, and to develop partnerships with the business and volunteer community. Needs CARE's number one need is securing financial resources to support our efforts. At present, our needs vary from month to month, but average $3500-$4000 monthly. We also rely on donations of supplies including dog food, treats, medication and veterinary care. CARE also relies upon volunteer manpower and must continue to attract responsible volunteers to the organization. There are no paid employees. Until a public facility can be built and utilized (a long-term need/goal), CARE is dependent upon foster homes for housing rescued animals until permanent homes are found. The organization funds the cost of the care, and the volunteers provide their homes for housing the dogs. As we continue to self-evaluate and set goals, CARE looks for individuals with specific expertise to lend to help. Areas needed include website development, volunteer training, publicity, and promotion. Board Chair Statement CARE began as one man on one mission, and quite by accident. In late 2009, my second oldest son, then an EMT, brought home a deformed puppy that was to be euthanized by a breeder who was unable to sell it. He saw the value in the precious puppy that went far beyond its monetary value and today that dog is a treasured member of our family. Following this initial rescue, our family felt a deep sense of investigating how we might further expand this experience to help other dogs in our community. Sadly, in 2011, we lost our son to suicide. In an effort to honor how he lived his life of saving people and animals, CARE was "born". In its first year, 27 dogs were pulled into sanctuary care and 81 dogs were adopted to permanent homes. Each year our numbers gradually increase, both in animals saved and new volunteers coming on board to assist. Areas Of Service Areas Served 2

3 Areas Metro Richmond Chesterfield County Henrico County Powhatan County Service Categories Animal Protection & Welfare 3

4 Programs Programs Dog Sanctuary Description CARE provides sanctuary and hospice care to elderly, disabled and terminally ill dogs in loving home environments. We believe that each animal that passes through this world should know and be given loving care. Our veterinarians help us to develop a medical protocol for each sanctuary dog that is closely followed. Budget $24, Strategy Long term Success Yes CARE hopes that this program will not only impact the individual dogs that it serves, but that it will encourage community values towards elderly and infirm animals. 100% of the animals served through sanctuary care will be positively impacted. Dog Adoption Description Having no public facility for our dogs to meet potential adopters, CARE has become an adoption partner with both Petco and PetsMart stores, and participates in weekly adoption stands on Saturdays at local store locations. These stands provide a venue for us to show our dogs to potential adopters. Volunteers assist with preparing dogs for the events, preparing our stands, transporting dogs and supplies and staffing the stands. Generally stands last for about three hours and are publicized on social media, local media and our website. We are able to invite those who contact us directly. Though we do not adopt directly from our stands (we require a veterinary reference check and home visit prior to placing our dogs in new homes), people can fill out and submit adoption applications while on site. Upon rescue, each dog visits our veterinarian to receive a thorough examination including vaccinations, bloodwork, necessary medications. lab work and evaluation for dental needs. Occasionally a dog may need surgery to correct a condition that has a direct impact on their quality of life. All dogs are spayed or neutured and microchipped. Kennel housing and daily care is also part of our adoption program. Budget $50,

5 Community Outreach and Education Description CARE has a mission to begin to partner with other community organizations. Organizations identified include civic organizations (Rotary, Ruritan, etc.), educational groups (school groups such as SCA, Key Clubs, etc.), specific mission (Boy and Girl Scouts, etc.) and religious groups (groups within churches, synagogues, etc.). We believe that pooling our volunteer efforts, knowledge and skills can mutually benefit each group and lead to a greater understanding of each group's mission and efforts. An example of outreach was CARE's contact by a local church planning to host a "give back" day. Animal welfare is one of nine areas identified by the church as a way to use their time and efforts to positively impact their community. We have two projects that need to be done, and the skills and manpower of this large group can help us to complete them. At the same time, we can talk with the people about our mission and how they can be a positive force for animals in our community. Budget $ Long term Success Short Term Success This would be an ongoing effort to reach more and more people. Impact would be measured upon both the number of people engaged and the scope of results from each project or program. As yet, this area of growth for CARE has not been developed, and CARE is currently enlisting volunteers with specific skill sets to reach out to the community. We anticipate that our planned September partnership with the church group will result in a new drainage system for our rescue's kennel area with minimum financial outlay. In addition to building a drainage field around the kennel area, the church group plans to recondition our crates, especially those that need sanding and paint. 5
