C.a.r.e. Animal Shelter - Ruskin Pet Shelter

C.a.r.e. Animal Shelter

C.A.R.E. was founded in 2000 by Dr. Hal Ott, D.V.M. and a group of local citizens concerned about the high number of healthy animals being euthanized each year in Hillsborough County. With a mission of rescuing, rehabilitating and adopting stray and owner relinquished animals C.A.R.E. opened a small, 3 acre shelter in Ruskin in 2001. In 2003, a discount spay-neuter clinic was added to help the animals of low income residents in the South Shore area and to further reduce the number of homeless pets. Over the ensuing years C.A.R.E. has added an Intensive Care Unit for newly arrived cats, a large new cat facility and a small breed dog addition to allow the smaller dogs to be separated from the larger dogs.
