About Us

Our Mission

AZ Center for Animal Rescue and Education (AZ CARE) is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit all breed dog and cat rescue in Arizona. We are dedicated to reducing the euthanasia rate in our state through education, spay/neuter programs and adoption events. Our network of foster homes provide a safe haven for dogs/cats while they wait for their forever homes. Our education programs will include youth programs to get the next generation involved in the pet overpopulation epidemic and strive to find a way to end the suffering in our shelters, state and nation wide.

Our History

July 2014  – With the help and encouragement of our volunteers, we started AZ CARE out of San Tan Valley. Liberty, the pregnant pup pictured to the right with our founder was the straw that broke the camels back, and pushed Nicole into getting started again.
