About us

Caim is a 501c3 charity whose mission is to help the US become a no-kill nation. Our platform empowers animal rescues to connect with each other, fosters and other rescue advocates in order to move animals from overcrowded, high kill areas to places they're more likely to be adopted. Everything we build is FREE to use, thanks to the generosity of our donors.

The meaning of our name

Caim [Gaelic]: An invisible circle of protection, drawn around the body with the hand, to remind one of being safe and loved even in the darkest times.

As animal lovers, we feel there's nothing more important than ensuring animals feel loved and safe, despite anything they may have been through in the past. Knowing that our technology gets to play a small part in finding animals their forever homes and opening up space for new animals to come into a safe place is what drives us.
