About

CARA (Community Animal Rescue & Adoption) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization operated by volunteers, board members, and part-time shelter employees. We are supported by private donations from individuals, businesses, and fundraising efforts. CARA receives no funds from the city, county, state, or federal government.

Mission Statement 

​Community Animal Rescue and Adoption is dedicated to saving dogs and cats in the Jackson and surrounding areas who need to find loving homes. We are also committed to providing low cost spay/neuter options to reduce the population of unwanted animals, and we work to educate our community on topics such as pet healthcare and responsible ownership.
