Cheri McLain founded Rescue Animals Community Effort, Inc. (RACE) in the spring of 2010. The initial mission was to contract the services of the county animal shelter to help companion animals live a quality life in Brunswick county, North Carolina.
RACE has developed into an organization that also implements programs to educate children and adults on proper care and responsibility for companion animals. Additionally, RACE teaches awareness to the community about animal issues that impact society as a whole.
RACE is an all volunteer and foster network that is fueled by community interest. RACE has aided in reducing euthanasia in the community by accepting dogs in their adoption program and finding them new homes and by spaying and neutering feral cats in the area.
