Because You Care, Inc.

Because You Care is dedicated to rescuing stray and abandoned dogs and cats and finding them loving forever homes. We are concerned with companion animal overpopulation and work actively to reduce the number of unwanted stray pets. To this end, all our pets are spayed and neutered. Because You Care promotes identification processes that assist animals who are lost to find their way home. All dogs are microchipped as part of the adoption process. We also provide a spay/neuter and release program that allows feral cats to continue living outside after being spayed or neutered and vaccinated for rabies. We do not euthanize animals in our care unless it is medically imperative.

Programs and Services

When pets enter our system, they are assigned to foster homes run by volunteers, where they can be assessed, both physically and emotionally, and given any medical treatment and socialization needed, including being spayed or neutered.
Once they are ready for adoption, they are moved to the adoption center in McKean, where the public can visit them. Using this model, the personality, habits, and health of each pet is well known, enhancing our ability to place them in adoptive homes that are the right match for both the family and the pet. We carefully screen all applications for adoption.
