C.A.R.E.S. (Critter Adoption, Rescue, and Education Society) is a New Orleans animal rescue. We are volunteers dedicated to improving the lives of companion animals through rescue efforts, adoption, public advocacy, education, litigation, and direct intervention. While we mostly serve southeastern Louisiana, our non-profit organization has the ability to expand the service area as needed to meet our mission.
