Our mission is to reduce pet overpopulation by providing low-cost spay and neuter services to our Central Arkansas community.  Paws in the Clinic thanks A.A.R.F. - Arkansas Animal Rescue Foundation for the resources to assist in this vital mission in Arkansas.

Let's keep Kathy Reese's legacy going!
Without your help, we can't complete our mission.  As CARE expands its reach to other parts of the state, we will continue to be in need of resources.  By partnering with CARE for Animals and the Arkansas Animal Rescue Foundation (AARF), you can be part of the solution of pet overpopulation in central Arkansas.  Please consider donating to this vital cause today.  Also, we have available for you to set up a monthly donation system.  This way you can rest assured that your monthly donation is going straight to where it's needed. To the pets.  Thank you for your support of CARE for Animals!


CARE Spay/Neuter Vouchers

Vouchers cover part of the cost of the surgery, and work as a coupon for sterilization services.

Spay/Neuter vouchers are issued to clients who cannot afford the full price surgery for their pets.  There are no income requirement. Clients are asked to pay between $15 and $50 depending on what the client can contribute, and CARE covers the remaining cost.

Vouchers can used at designated veterinary clinics with an appointment.  CARE's goal is to reach out to needy locations in Arkansas, but we cannot cover them all.  If there are no close counties to your location, please contact us for further assistance.
