CARE Pet Rescue, Inc.

West Des Moines Animal Shelter

West Des Moines, Iowa 50265
CARE Pet Rescue is a volunteer-run, animal rescue that saves stray and abandoned dogs and cats from euthanasia or further abuse and neglect. With no boarding facility or shelter of our own, CARE pets live in local homes where they receive medical care and rehabilitation to get them ready for their forever homes. CARE Pet Rescue seeks not only to place dogs into loving homes, but also to educate dog owners about responsible pet ownership. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, trainers, and boarding facilities, we are able to about one hundred animals every year, provide them with loving care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened, forever homes. We also serve as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition. No board members or employees at CARE Pet Rescue are paid a salary. Their time with the rescue, whether it be in an administrative role or working directly with the animals, is volunteer only. With shelters at their maximum capacity a lot of times, rescues are necessary in all communities. Rescuing and being able to home deserving pets into foster homes, and not in noisy kennels, feels really good. All pets deserve what we can give our rescue pets.
