ABOUT THE GALA
The 2019 inaugural Red CAREpet Gala kicked off C.A.R.E.'s official Capital Campaign for the innovative C.A.R.E. Pet Services Center! It was an AMAZING evening, including drinks, appetizers, dinner, live music from Lancaster Station, silent and live auctions (total value over $6,000!), and the commencement of C.A.R.E.'s vision for the future! Thank you to all of our attendees, sponsors, donors, and special guests, including Sheriff Arnott, Deputy Craigmyle, K9 Lor, Leigh Moody, Diskey the Wonder Dog, and Jecobie Roberts.
The second annual Red CAREpet Gala will be held on
Friday, April 10 at the Oasis Hotel and Convention Center.

C.A.R.E. PET SERVICES CENTER
Approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter shelters nationwide annually, and 1.5 million (1 in 4) don’t make it out alive. At least 1,376 animals were euthanized in 2017 in Greene County alone. That number would be much higher without the work of C.A.R.E. and other area no-kill shelters. This is a HUGE problem, but we have a solution to attack the problem directly at its source.
The innovative Pet Services Center will provide a full-service veterinary clinic, grooming, pet training, community education, food pantry assistance, emergency services, and other pet retention services to low-income families and seniors. The goal of the Pet Services Center will be to reduce owner surrenders, ultimately decreasing the number of animals abandoned in shelters and keeping them in loving homes.
This will be a huge undertaking, but C.A.R.E. is up for the challenge! We are one step closer due to a matching funds pledge up to $500,000 by a private benefactor. All funds raised at the Red CAREpet Gala will be matched, making twice the impact on southwest Missouri’s pets and pet parents!
