Welcome to CARA!
KUDOS -- We were overwhelmed and humbled this morning to receive 20 new Kuranda-style, modular dog beds!! Many thanks to the Mississippi Agility Demo Dog Group for the PVC pipe and labor to assemble the beds and to Bob Moran of Appearance Awning & Canvas, Inc. for donating and sewing the fabric. Pictured below are Marsha Jones (MAD Dog Group), Sharon Sowell (CARA) and Connie Campbell (MAD Dog Group). Thanks to these special people, 20 dogs will sleep better tonight!!
