How long is the Challenge, and how can we increase our chances?
This voting round begins on January 7, 2013, and ends at midnight (PT) on April 28, 2013. There will be other voting rounds throughout the year - more chances for CARA to win! The more friends you can rally to vote for CARA, the better our chances of winning. Every vote, every day counts - shelters can pull ahead even during the last few days with enough support. Get people involved! CARA rescue organization is counting on you!

Matt is about 3 months old and we believe he is a male Chihuahua/Brussels Griffon mix. Matt loves to play, enjoys his toys, as all children do, but his favorite activity is being held and sharing snuggles. Please understand that because of his itty-bitty size, we will be looking for a home without small children. If you are interested in adopting Matt, please click on the link below.
