If you watch me strut around the big yard you might think that I am a tough feisty independent little guy. Just don't look too close at my eyes or you will see that I just don't understand why everything I ever had went away . When I was very young I got really sick and now my legs tremble. It makes people think I am really old but I'm not. I am no spring chicken mind you but I'm young enough that I have learned to play nice with my foster brothers and sisters. I even like to take time out from making sure the cows next door show proper respect to look with my starry eyes at the man from ICARE who takes care of us and enjoy a pat and a cookie now and then. I fuss and grumble some but if you promise not to tell Ill let you in on a little secret. I love to play with my foster friends. I do miss my human and wish someone would take me home.You can call my foster dad at 870-291-0365, e-mail him at or fill out an application for me available at

About Izard County Animal Rescue Effort (ICARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

ICARE was started in 2003 by a handful of people concerned about the number of abandoned dogs & cats and lack of care for others. By the end of the year, ICARE was a growing organization of volunteers, received non-profit status, and doing fundraisers in order to finance shelter, food, & vet care for homeless and unwanted animals in this rural county. Still an all volunteer organization, ICARE takes in homeless, sick/injured animals. We take care of their needs, get them in good health, spayed& neutered, and put them up for adoption. Fundraisers and donations are what keeps us financially level but, sadly, the need is always greater than the money to take care of them. But when we receive the pictures & followups from adopters and see how happy the pets are it makes it all worth while. These happy tails gives us a renewed burst of energy and determination to save as many pets as possible.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our adoptable pets are in foster homes. Please contact us with any questions about pets you see. We will be happy to send more pictures, tell you about the pet's history, personality, and put you in touch with the foster family so you can get first hand information on the cat or dog.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fee in the state of Arkansas is $70. The fee for out-of-state adoptions is $95. An application can be found on our website, which can be filled out and submitted online. If approved for adoption, we require the adopter to sign a contract of care and, if pet is not spayed/neutered, a spay/neuter compliance form. We will help to arrange transport but adopter is responsible for transport fees.
