There are 3 more weeks left in CARE's series. Make sure you register ahead to tune in for free!
Why is it important to attend?
Our entire month is dedicated to raising awareness of the lack of Black Veterinarians in our country. The number is currently under 2%. CARE is in its 3rd year in raising scholarship funds for Dr. Jodie G. Blackwell Scholarship. All donations for the month of February go towards the scholarship. Thanks for Maddie's Fund and Tito's Vodka for Dog People, we have $75,000 already.

Hidden Figures: Why They Matter
With speakers Dr. Alina Luna and Johnny Jenkins
Throughout history, we have seen and heard of the stories of powerful figures who, one way or another, influenced the society we live in today. In this segment, Dr. Luna and Johnny Jenkins will discuss significant historical figures you may not know about due to our historic and modern-day inequities. As we know, there is still much work to do, especially considering the Human and Animal Well-being space.

As much as I am delighted in your efforts for Black History Month and your scholarships and the money you have raised, that is impressive! Let's just keep in mind that the pets do NOT see color, they know you by sense of smell! They know the sound of your car when YOU come home, they know your VOICE...they do NOT care what color you are? The beauty of the judgement-free zone, pets are smarter than us! JUST LOVE IT!

Thank you for your message. You are absolutely correct, Pet's don't see color. It's humans that do. We do hope to see you on any and all of Thursday's discussions.
