We are a state licensed animal care network focused on the care of animals and the people they own.

We have doctor’s of veterinary medicine, doctors of avian medicine, professors and research professionals supporting our
efforts, monitoring and submitting to our care guides on these pages.

4AnimalCare is owned and overseen by Rev. Dr. S.A. Abbott,  CAS (Certified Avian Specialist) with
always ongoing education in animal nutrition and behavior.
S. August Abbott is also a member of the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council, International Association of
Animal Behavior Consultants, World Wildlife Federation (Leaders Club), as well the ASPCA and National
Humane Society.

When animals are left behind and abandoned, 4AnimalCare uses live-traps and hands-on methods to
recover them, rehabilitate when necessary and eventually placed in new, loving, forever homes.

We also manage controlled feral cat populations (having males neutered, females spayed), very helpful in
rodent control in some areas while maintaining animals that may not be adoptable/able to be tamed.  

4AnimalCare maintains feeding stations for wild populations of both cats and other critters, including some
birds. These stations are checked at least twice a day, every day, all year.  Clean food and water
constantly provided, all at the expense of the volunteers who are also giving their time.

4AnimalCare will visit schools and clubs with our marvelous macaw and most successful rehab
story, ‘Sadie’,  a previously abused bird who has also survived a disability that required surgery to
both of her feet.  She’s also got some great information about exotic birds like herself

We are committed to the health and welfare of all animals.  
Each has their place on this planet and it’s our duty to honor that.
And we're always trying  to do more
