COASTAL ANIMAL RESCUE ANDEDUCATIONAL SANCTUARY

aka SC-CARES

Georgetown, SC

Mission

Rescue, rehabilitation, and release of wildlife.  Rescue and sanctuary of domestic and exotic animals.  Education of the public, through guided tours and outreach, regarding the aspects and responsibility of taking an animal as a pet.  Using the stories of the animals living at the sanctuary we attempt to illustrate the abuse and neglect of animals by irresponsible pet owners and those breeding the animals for the pet trade.

Notes from the Nonprofit

We are a small grass roots organization. Our focus and energy has been to survive. We have struggled for 12 years to overcome bias and to expand compassion for the creatures we serve.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
