On March 6th, I had to make a very difficult decision and said goodbye to someone who has been a member of my family for 14.5 years.

You would run over to the edge of the pen to see everyone who came up. Then they would leave, and you would come back over to me and sit in my lap. By the end of the day, I knew where you needed to be... with me forever. Know that you will always be loved. I miss you every day.

On July 20, 2016 Anne Gross made a Memorial Dedication for Jake Tiberius Dog Hoke-Woodward

Jake was distinguished by extremely soft black fur, a round head, square muzzle, triangle ears, and--in later life--a gentlemanly silver Van Dyke beard. He was not that into laps, hugs, or photography, and he was very afraid of lightning, however he enjoyed tennis balls, peanut butter jars, and dogs on TV...He was a good dog. He was a very, very good dog."

On July 19, 2016 Victoria Hoke made a Memorial Dedication for Jake

In loving memory of Jake, who passed away peacefully in his home on Saturday, July 16, 2016.

Along with three litter-mates, he was rescued by Chatham County Animal Rescue (and foster mom Beate) in the spring of 2003. The only black dog--and fearful of strangers--he was last in the litter
to be adopted. I am so grateful for the privilege of giving him his forever home.

He was not that into laps, hugs, or photography, and he was very afraid of lightning, however he enjoyed tennis balls, peanut butter jars, and dogs on TV.

A well-traveled dog, he spent four years in Winston-Salem and visited New York, NY; Franklin, NC; Memphis, TN; and Albuquerque, NM before settling in Los Angeles, CA for his final eight years.
Along the way he made many friends--human, dog, and cat--ran along many rivers, beaches, trails, and dog parks, and licked clean many fine sour cream containers.

He was my baby. He was deeply, deeply loved, and he is deeply, deeply missed.

On December 31, 2015 Victoria Bautch made a Memorial Dedication for Maggie

Maggie was a stray who walked out of the woods here in Chatham Co. one day and followed us home - never to leave! She was the smartest, most energetic and personable dog imaginable. She never behaved - she climbed fences, brought back dead animals from the woods, jumped on tables, inhaled her food - but she was the most loyal and lovable dog in the world. She blessed our home with her love and shenanigans for 12 years. She crossed the rainbow bridge this past summer as she lived.

We miss her so much, the gap in our hearts and lives will never be filled. It makes me smile (thru tears) to think of her causing a ruckus in doggie heaven!

I've only had three dogs in my life and two of them were adopted from CARE (the third just showed up in the yard one day). Red was about a year old when we got him. Red was the best dog ever, friendly to everyone, and so much personality, even though his first year was probably a rough one. When Red was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, at the age of 8, we discovered that he had once been shot and the left side of his chest was full of birdshot. But he still loved everyone he met.

On April 7, 2013 Meg and Matt Daniels and Spencer made a Memorial Dedication for Looper DiFelice

This donation was made on behalf of our amazing friend. Looper DiFelice was an entertainer, trustworthy, devoted, obsessed Labrador Retriever who recently joined a crew of amazing dogs at the Rainbow Bridge. We hope this money will find its way into the hearts of a foster parent(s) or a new owner(s) who assume the financial expenses and demanding responsibility of adopting a special needs dog. We loved you as though you were our own dog, Loo, and we will miss you terribly. Love, Matt, Meg and Spencer.

On January 7, 2013 Susan Edwards made a Memorial Dedication for Holly Messere
On January 7, 2013 Susan Edwards made a Memorial Dedication for Holly Messere

Holly spent many wonderful years with the kind folks who rescued her as a kitten. She always traveled with them to their beach home in Pine Knoll Shores where she could see the ocean and occasionally swat at Tippy, Sam or Rosie when they came to Holly's deck for a tasty handout. She thought those Island Cats got better food than she did! When at her Cary home, she could spend warm days on the screen porch, hunting spiders and bugs. Shy around people other than "hers", one would be lucky to catch a fleeting glimpse of this beautiful black girl. Holly is in kitty heaven where she has all the ice water she can drink, bang the blinds as often as she likes and eat her fill of bugs and spiders. You are greatly missed, Holly Girl. :](

On January 1, 2010 MARGARET SCHNEIDER made a Memorial Dedication for Gideon

In memory of our boy Gideon who brought us joy since 10/2001 when we adopted him. At the end his heart just started to give out. I guess it's because he used his heart sooooo much through the years since he was a LOVER not a fighter! Thank you to CARE for giving us Gideon and for helping us out with his expenses at the end. We still have 2 dogs (Morgan & Pearl) that we adopted from CARE in 1/2002 and there presence sure helps ... but Gideon was such a lovable boy who made friends with everyone that his passing has impacted many of our friends and family too.
On January 1, 2010 Victoria Bautch made a Memorial Dedication for Sam
On January 1, 2010 Victoria Bautch made a Memorial Dedication for Sam

Sam was a Chatham County stray dog who followed us home one day over 15 years ago, when he was an adolescent. He was the first dog who chose us, and he made me realize that it's better than OK to take in stray homeless dogs...he was the first of a wonderful group of "found" dogs. Sam was the perfect foil for his high-energy sisters Lucy and then Maggie - he was steady, always there, never (ok, hardly ever!) a problem, and full of love and devotion without a lot of sticky sentiment. He lived 16 great years. I miss his smiling face at the door, his courage as his health declined, and his way of imparting wisdom without making a sound. And his totally off-key but lusty howl!

On August 28, 2008 Sue Edwards made a Memorial Dedication for Snorkle
On August 28, 2008 Sue Edwards made a Memorial Dedication for Snorkle

Snorkle came to us when a concerned neighbor called CARE after learning of the death of Snorkel's owner. It was over a week before friends realized the many cats that lived with Snork had not been fed or watered. Through the efforts of CARE and neighbor Crystal, all cats were placed. Snorkle, virtually toothless, was pregnant again at around age 13. Too close to delivery, Snorkle gave birth to two kittens, neither of which survived. During her subsequent spay, Dr. Monce discovered several malignant tumors. Unable to reach me, he finished the spay, removed the tumors and hoped for the best. We took Snorkle home thinking she had about three months to live. She took to indoor living, lots of canned food, unlimited affection. She surprised us all by outliving her three month prognosis by two full happy, healthy years before the cancer took her life.
We miss you Snorkle and hope you are happy in Kitty Heaven. You were our joy.

On July 3, 2007 Susan Nadel made a Memorial Dedication for Spinner
On July 3, 2007 Susan Nadel made a Memorial Dedication for Spinner

We had to say good-bye to Spinner recently. I was so sad to see him go. He had tumors in his lungs and was starting to struggle with breathing. My only regret for Spinner was that he never got to stay with one family in his forever home. Spinner had to move around a lot in his 6 or 7 years. Joan Cunningham fostered him when he came to CARE after unknown past. He came to live with my 85 year old mother, Elsie Barrow, about 2 years ago. Mom just adored him and he thrived on the attention - and the peanuts! He stayed with me briefly while Mom got over an illness. Last summer after a fall, she had to enter a long term care facility. Spinner came to live with us again. Spinner was the most laid-back dog I have ever known. He was a perfect friend for our Aussie, Jessie, who generally doesn't like other dogs. You can see how well they got along from the photo.

Good-bye, Spinner!
On May 16, 2007 Nicole Dalton made a Memorial Dedication for Tracy Baldwin

In memory of Tracy Baldwin, Lulu's mom. She was a terrific person, taken from this life much too soon.

'Just as the soft rains fill the streams,
pour into the rivers, and join together in the oceans,
so may the power of every moment of your goodness
flow forth to awaken and heal all beings--
those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.'
(from a Buddhist healing chant)
On April 12, 2007 Sue Edwards made a Memorial Dedication for Long John
On April 12, 2007 Sue Edwards made a Memorial Dedication for Long John

Long John was one in a million! Several years ago he decided that Hazel Money belonged to him, and moved right in. Everyone in the complex knew and loved Long John. We were all saddened to learn that he was FIV positive, but with care, he could still lead a long life. Our beloved Hazel died, and Long John was without a home. To the rescue came JR and Carol Welch. Without a second thought, Long John was packed up and moved in with his new family. For several years Long John ruled the roost: JR's chair became his, the dog was his toy, and Carol was only allowed to feed him his very favorite foods. Long John succumbed to his illness earlier this year and left us all very sad, but with many, many memories of one extraorinary cat. You are missed, Long John.

Bella (AKA Pearl) was a special girl who stole our hearts when she and her brother, Perry, came into the CARE foster system from the animal shelter.

Bella left us way too soon and she will be missed by all who knew her.

On December 31, 2006 Brenda Cox made a Memorial Dedication for April
On December 31, 2006 Brenda Cox made a Memorial Dedication for April

No one knew anything about April before her life began again the day she left the shelter and came into the warmth and safety of the CARE foster home of Stacey Griffin. After she came into foster care, she had to be treated for heartworms and a hematoma in her ear. But through all of that, it was clear that inside this little dog was a gentle and giving heart. As she regained her health, she enjoyed naps in the sun or shadowing Stacey everywhere she went.

Her name became Maggie when we adopted her only a few months ago. In the very short time that we knew Maggie, in her quiet and soothing way she found a permanent place in our hearts. Maggie was my first thought every morning when I woke up as she snuggled up against me in the bed, and my light every evening when I got home.

Maggie was blossoming. She was inquisitive, loving and the most precious gift you could have given me. Everyone who met her fell in love with her, from that continuous wagging tail to the lopsided ears that perked up when you came into the room.

She was the most perfect, loving dog. I hope she knew the joy and love she brought to our family, and I hope she knew how dearly she was loved. Even if I had known that we would lose Maggie so soon to cancer, we still would have welcomed her into our lives. She will be remembered forever and will go with us in our hearts each and every day.

Thank you for giving me the time that I had with this wonderful dog.

Brenda Cox

The Chatham Animal Rescue and Education Board, Cat Welfare and Dog Welfare committees made a donation in Tugger's memory to the ARF Fund at Hill Creek Vet. Almost everyone at CARE personally knew and loved Tugger, and we will miss seeing him at the front desk when we visit Hill Creek Vet.
Tugger was a very special kitty who helped at... err, ran ... the front desk at Hill Creek Vet. (His title was 'Feline Clinic Supervisor'!) He managed this and many other tasks at the clinic despite having diabetes. Everyone at Hill Creek Vet who he supervised will miss him terribly. Click here to learn more about Tugger, and click here to visit Tugger's copious Web log at Hill Creek Vet.
On December 11, 2005 Susan Edwards made a Memorial Dedication for Mama

As a feral cat trapper and rescuer, Mama is my inspiration. Mama showed up at her eventual home in Columbia, SC stalking squirrels to feed her babies. Mama, just a baby herself, would have two litters before she was one year old. It took many attempts to finally catch her (she was a wild thing!)and end her reproducing days. Mama was at least 12 years old before you could even touch her! Her final years were spent as a contented, well fed, much loved house cat. Mama died peacefully at eighteen, at her home with her Mom, Dad and her (also rescued)canine and feline companions. Thanks to Tom and Tina for giving so much to Mama and the many other animals they have helped and rescued.

I know that we all have special relationships with our dogs. They are all special each in their own way. We also know that none of them last forever except in our hearts.

If you knew Shomar, he loved you and we know that love makes the world a better place.

On April 10, 2004 Dave Cohen made a Memorial Dedication for Iggy
On April 10, 2004 Dave Cohen made a Memorial Dedication for Iggy

Iggy was a wonderful girl who gave us nearly 20 purr-filled years. Slim and long-legged, Iggy would take off running in the backyard with seemingly no effort, her paws barely touching the ground, before lauching herself halfway up a tree. While Iggy was not very social with cats that entered the household after her, she did love the nearly twenty pound male who predated her. She would cuddle up to Killer for baths and naps, and in her very young days was even caught trying to nurse on the big guy. The basement office is empty without Iggy now. We miss her terribly, but are comforted to know that 'Iggy-Wiggy' is reunited with Killer, and should be snuggling into his big soft belly on some a big, comfy chair somewhere about now.
On April 10, 2004 Dave Cohen made a Memorial Dedication for Stinky
On April 10, 2004 Dave Cohen made a Memorial Dedication for Stinky

I found Stinky one morning outside under the car, and tried to find her a new home. Ok, I didn't try very hard, and was luckily unsuccessful. While she was always a real cute little kitty, she wasn't too fond of other girl cats - but did very much love to snuggle up to Killer, my 20 pound male cat. In fact, wherever Killer was, Stinky was sure to be close by. Stinky loved to catch moles in the backyard, and also to unfuriate me by wondering off when my attention waned. Her time with us was relatively short, but I will never forget her. I'm sure 'Pookie' is burrowed into Killer's belly, with one of his front legs wrapped around her, just dreaming of some mischief to unleash.
On April 10, 2004 Dave Cohen made a Memorial Dedication for Sandy
On April 10, 2004 Dave Cohen made a Memorial Dedication for Sandy

Sandy was my first dog, and he actually adopted ME! He had been a neighbor's dog, but they were away all day at work, and he preferred to hang out at my house - I work at home, and he could not stand to miss my daily walks and other outings. Sandy loved to go anywhere I went, on foot or in my pickup truck - we had several trips together, including a day trip to the beach. Sandy transformed me from a lifetime 'cat person' to a 'dog/cat person', and I can't imagine being without either in my life now. While our time together was short, it changed my life. My message to Sandy is simple: you taught me how cool dogs are (especially Golden Retrievers). Wherever you are now, 'Woofy-Boy', find the closest pickup and hop up into the cab...I'll find you.
On April 10, 2004 Dave Cohen made a Memorial Dedication for Killer
On April 10, 2004 Dave Cohen made a Memorial Dedication for Killer

Killer was my first cat, and from the time he kept climbing up my pants leg while I was choosing from the litter of strays, he was like no other cat I knew before or since. Very outgoing and not afraid of strangers, Killer was friendly to everyone once they got over his size, which hit nearly 20 pounds at one point. Well, nearly everyone - as long as you weren't a vet or another male cat! Killer was not the typical cat, who shied from new situations or people. In fact, I did not even use a cat carrier when transporting him, though this had some drawbacks, such as the time he was on the back of the car seat and slipped while I was merging onto the interstate, catching a back claw in the chain around my neck and nearly choking me! I know that somewhere, 'Killer-Diller' is in his typical repose: flat on his back in a sunbeam.
On February 6, 2004 Anne Byrd made a Memorial Dedication for Nyles Clayton

'We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan.'
- Irving Townsen


In loving memory of our precious Simba/Tommy Lee who brought so much joy to those around him in the short time he was here.
- Katie and Ski, foster mom and dad

On August 20, 2003 Anonymous made a Memorial Dedication for Fritz
On August 20, 2003 Anonymous made a Memorial Dedication for Fritz

Mr. Fritz, the 'main man', was one cool dude looking for a very special home. The quintessential lap dog, Fritz yearned for every moment of loving and rubbing he could get. While he slept a good deal of the day, Fritz also had his feisty moments. When he saw a deer beyond the fence, he ran 100 feet out, barked, ran 100 feet back, and then took a four-hour nap. Fritz thought he was a big guy: He had no qualms about growling at his alpha dog, who was an 80-pound Golden retriever. She just smiled and wagged her tail because he looked so silly. He loved dogs, cats, and children of all ages.

Fritz was taken in from the Chatham Shelter by Pam Sullivan, even though it was known that he suffered from renal (kidney) insufficiency. He was listed for adoption for several months before she gave up on the charade. Pam gave Fritz a great final 2 years before he succumbed to kidney problems.

On June 17, 2003 Rosa Tattoli made a Memorial Dedication for Cassie-the-Dog

I always knew that Cassie-the-Dog was a little 'different'. She had been brutally abused before I found her. Sometimes it made her hard to live with. However, I would not have traded the last 16 years for anything. Sure, she would nip and growl when she was feeling a bit uppity, but she would protect me with her life if she believed I was in danger. Her nasty little persona was just a front to hide her tender little soul. If you were willing to look at Cassie closely, she would let you see her true self. You had to earn the right, but it could be done if you were willing to try. She just couldn't trust anyone completely. Perhaps in the after-life she will no longer remember the abuse she suffered in this life. Cassie was never a good dog, but she was my dog. That was good enough for me. I will always love and miss her.

On February 11, 2003 Charles Yaunk made a Memorial Dedication for Hank

Tracy Green loved 'Hank' her Yorkshire terrier very much. She still, to this day, keeps a lock of his hair and kisses him goodbye when leaving the house. A dog couldn't have a better companion than Tracy and he had one heck of a good life while here. I know this is one of the best things I could have gotten Tracy for Valentine's Day. In memory of Hank and for Tracy G!

Wylie joined our life in January and left it in July. However, that did not diminish the love he gave nor the love we had for him. He was a very loving dog with lots of kisses to give. Unfortunately, he was born with kidney disease; we hope he enjoyed his time here as much as we enjoyed having him. We miss him immensely.

On March 15, 2002 Steve and Sue Edwards made a Memorial Dedication for Annie

Annie burst into our lives October 15, 1999 and left us February 25, 2001. Throughout her illness, loss of eyesight and complicated surgery, she fought with every ounce of her being to survive. The surgery restored her health and her eyesight, though impaired, slowly returned. She spent her days chasing squirrels and living life to the fullest. Seizures presented her biggest risk. Six months after her surgery, a seizure claimed her life. We miss you, Ann.

We STILL miss that little girl every day.
