SC-C.A.R.E.S. is a Wildlife Rescue & Rehab Center, Educational Animal Sanctuary, Environmental Center and a 501(c)3 non-profit public supported charity located in the Georgetown area of South Carolina. Click here to verify our Non-Profit status.

We provide a compassionate "no-kill/no-breed" sanctuary for abused, neglected and unwanted exotic and farm animals and non-releasable wildlife. A safe caring place in which they can live out their days in a healthy, natural environment with a good quality of life.

We rescue, rehabilitate, and release injured wildlife. Wildlife that cannot be released may become goodwill ambassadors for their species by participating in educational programs.

We will develop and implement educational outreach programs for schools, universities, and other civic groups. Programs will teach the interdependency between animals, humans and the environment, accenting the impact of human activities on all the other creatures we share our planet with.

We plan to build a world-class nature and environmental education center.

We provide compassionate people the opportunity of volunteer

Volunteers help the animals by providing
interaction and companionship in the
course of supplying necessary services
to the sanctuary.
