The Center for Animal Rehabilitation & Education Inc. (C.A.R.E.) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization whose mission is to provide for, through advocacy and activism, the needs of all exotic birds, elder dogs and small animals. We educate the public about the needs of exotic birds, elder dogs and small animals. CARE provides permanent housing for any exotic birds not able to live in a typical home environment, excluding birds with contagious diseases. Our goal is to find a loving, responsible, permanent home for adoptable birds, elder dogs and small animals.

We do not have a parking lot. The parking lot behind our building is a PRIVATE parking lot. If you park there, you will run the risk of getting your car towed and creating bad feelings between CARE and the neighbors. There is plenty of on-street parking and mini lots within blocks of us. There is also a municipal lot halfway down South Street. It’s $3.00 for the whole day but you must pay with a credit card. It is automated, there is no attendant. Our volunteers have had no problems finding parking on the streets.
We’re featured in a novel!
