Who We Are

Helping animals in Solano County since 2015

CARES was established in 2015 after realizing that Solano County needed more resources for the community to learn and find ways to help the area's less fortunate animals.

The entire CARES team is grateful for all of our supporters, volunteers, staff members, partners and generous donors who have stepped up to help us continue our mission to help animals in need and educate the community of how to take action.

We believe that we can speak on behalf of many animal rescuers that it is always difficult to turn the other cheek when resources are scarce for animals in need. CARES founder Marie Victa-Chua and her team agreed, and decided that it was time to take action and create an organization that can at least fill the gaps in our backyard and beyond: Vallejo and Solano County, California.

Our philosophy is simple: The CARES Team dedicates itself to providing loving, humane care, and support that includes foster and adoption services for animals, while also educating current and future pet owners in animal care.

Alongside our dedicated volunteer and foster network, we partner with dozens of local and non-local organizations for adoption events, fundraisers, and networking to help animals in need. If your or your organization is interested in partnering with CARES, please contact us at info@caresforanimals.org.
