Over the years, whether it was giving blood, working in animal rescue, or volunteering with Junior Achievement and Habitat for Humanity, community has always been important to the McDade family. As a lawyer, I have the unique privilege to being able to make a difference in another way with those who could not otherwise afford legal services.

Caesar's FosterCare

In 2006, my wife Tina and I started Caesar's FosterCare to help foster and find homes for abandoned, stray, or displaced dogs. When we rescue a dog we see that it gets the veterinary care it needs, some socialization and training, and find it a forever home that best matches the dog with the family. In our short time we have been able to help hundreds of dogs that would have otherwise suffered or been euthanized. We try to make a difference, one dog at a time. If you have any questions or interest in dog rescue, please email us at Caesar's fosterCare.
