As 2021 draws to a close, we are extremely sad to say that the sun will also set on maCares/faithCares. The pandemic has changed the way everyone makes their way through life, and we are no exception. For the better part of the last two years, our ability to raise funds to keep the programs going has been seriously hampered. To that end, we will be ceasing operations as of December 31st. We will continue to provide financial assistance to our service dog teams until our funds, as of December 31, 2021, have been depleted…at least until the end of 2022.
We can never thank you enough for making our passion your passion – much love to everyone who has supported us through the years through donations, volunteering, following us on social media and your love! We wish you all the very best as you navigate this new way of life…💗
Due to our inability to raise additional funds for our Service/Guide Dog Support Program, at this time we regret to inform you that we have suspended accepting applications for our program.
maCares is a 501(c)(3) organization that is committed to ‘helping service dogs help others’ by improving the quality of life for veterans, children, and adults. maCares also sponsors emergency veterinary care for rescued animals. maCares does not find, train or place the dogs.
