What's Happening at CARE:
CARE for Animals, Inc. (CARE) was recently awarded a $200,000.00 Grant from the Arkansas Animal Rescue Foundation (AARF). This grant will be used for the next five years to expand CARE’s Spay & Neuter Program “Paws In The Clinic” that provides low cost spay & neuter services to low income families. Thanks to AARF, CARE can expand our reach these services to a wider range in central Arkansas. We hope to use this generous grant to expand our voucher program and our clinics over the coming years. It's CARE's desire to see that Ms. Reese's legacy of animal welfare continues in Arkansas.”
Mrs. Gail Arnold, a board member of the Arkansas Animal Rescue Foundation said of the foundation, "AARF was funded by a bequest of Katherine Reese, a resident of Dover, Arkansas whose wish was to help support animal rescue groups statewide in Arkansas to promote and help advance spay/neuter programs as the most effective way to control animal over population. CARE has been a leader in this effort in Arkansas, so the AARF board has chosen to make it's first grant to this organization."
Arkansas Animal Rescue Foundation (AARF) is a 501(c)3 charity foundation founded by the late Kathy Reese, The foundation maintains a shelter for dogs and cats in Ms. Reese’s former home in Dover, Arkansas. AARF also administers funding of a spay/neuter program, working with veterinarians in a five-county area in central Arkansas. AARF is now in a position to help fund other shelters and spay/neuter programs, as well as, other charities involving animals in the state of Arkansas. CARE was selected as the first recipient of this generous grant.
