Gigi and BreesBree

Gigi and Kevin Carter,  CARA adopters, donated $15,000 toward the construction of the  first-class dog park on CARA property in Jackson. The dog park is named Bree’s Bark Park in honor of Bree, the dog, Gigi adopted from CARA in 2011. When Bree first came to CARA she was covered in mange with little chance for survival but now she is a healthy, happy dog. Gigi wanted Bree and other dogs to experience dog parks like the ones in Houston, Seattle, and other large cities where she has lived. “Bree’s Bark Park allows CARA and other local dogs a space to run, play and have fun,” Gigi noted. “It provides a venue for dog lovers in the community to come together for a common interest.”

If you would like to make a donation to CARA for Bree's Bark Park for the ongoing maintenance and additional features we would like to add, please  mail your donation to CARA, PO Box 231, Clinton, MS 39060.  Help us spread the word and “Like” CARA on Facebook
