Caring For Creatures, located on 157 acres in central Virginia, provides a safe refuge for dogs and cats with no other place to go.  Once an animal comes to the sanctuary, we commit to that animal for their entire life, if needed.  Our hope is that we are only a stop on their journey to a loving forever home.  If an animal is not selected for  adoption, we provide quality care and companionship for them as lifetime residents.
