The CARE Foundation

The C.A.R.E. Foundation is the beneficiary of the Pawpet Megaplex Charity Auction. They are a small, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization made up of volunteers concerned about the environment and wildlife conservation. Currently there are more than fifty animals on property. A few were chosen and specially hand raised for the specific purpose of education in schools. Many were abandoned, unwanted, as well as even abused and neglected ex-pets. In addition to the daily maintenance provided, the volunteers also conduct wildlife educational programs in public forums.

The C.A.R.E. Foundation was established to:

  • provide a safe and permanent home for all types of animals in need including unwanted, abandoned pets.
  • educate the public about animals and current environmental issues relating to species of special concern, threatened species, and endangered species.
  • educate the public about current environmental issues relating to habitats of special concern, threatened habitats, and endangered habitats.
  • educate the public about the interactions of the animals and the environment in which they live.
  • educate and help dispel common myths about some of these wondrous creatures that inhabit our earth.

They will be giving a presentation on Saturday. This will include a live encounter with some of the animals from their facility. The star of this show will be Kacha, a Florida Panther, and opportunities to take a photo with him will be available. The Charity Auction will commence following C.A.R.E's presentation. Uncle Kage has graciously agreed to conduct the auction.
