Don't have time to actually volunteer, but still want to help out? You can:
Volunteer to Foster A CARA Pet: A foster home is a temporary home in which our pets can live like they are supposed to live – as our companions – until they are adopted.
Foster homes provide a safe and loving environment for animals in our care that are either waiting for their new families to find them, are seniors and need a more peaceful surrounging or are taking special medications that need to be monitored.
Volunteer with CARA Community Council CARA: The CARA Community Council (CCC) was formed in an effort to gather volunteers from all over the community to support our great cause!
As a member of the CCC, volunteers participate in the following:
Volunteer at the Shelter: The Shelter always needs volunteers to bathe and groom, answer phones, socialize the animals, help with laundry, and assist the Staff with their everyday duties of cleaning cages and kennels. If you are under the age of 16, a parent or guardian must accompany you on your first visit to volunteer at the Shelter to complete the Consent Form.
Volunteer for Fundraising for CARA: It takes approximately $1100 a day to operate the Shelter so we welcome ideas and volunteers for ways to raise money!!

Meet Cinnamon (left) and Spice (right). These little girls are about 12 weeks old and are Chihuahua/Dachshund mixes. These little ones love everyone, but due to their very small size, we are looking for homes without young children.
