December 10, 2016 -- StorageMax Food Drive and Adoption Event for CARA was a great day.  A huge thank you to StorageMax for their monetary donations to CARA and for holding a food drive at all of their locations during the month of December.  So far over 3,000 lbs of dry food has been donated. We look forward to next year.  Pictured is Denise Cantrell accepting a donation check from Nick Newcomb of StorageMax. 



December 6, 2016 -- Overhead Door of Jackson recently came out to give us an estimate on fixing 5 of our garage style doors on CARA's main shelter building. We were expecting and preparing to spend a chunk on this project but we knew we'd have to fix them before winter set in. When we met with Overhead Door of Jackson they saw the work we do of taking care of over 400 homeless animals and felt compelled to donate not only the parts to fix all 5 doors but also the labor! We are so grateful to them. Anything we can get donated is so appreciated and a blessing as it keeps funds going to other important needs like vet care and the daily functioning of our organization. Overhead Door of Jackson --THANK YOU for caring about the homeless animals at CARA!

November 30, 2016 --CARA would like to send a huge THANK YOU to Grainger Foundation for the $5000 grant which will be used to purchase Kuranda beds for our dogs and cats. No pet will be sleeping on a cold floor thanks to these generous folks! Michael Bratcher, Manager, presents the check to CARA's Peggy Harrell.





October 2, 2016 - Our awesome friends at Hollywood brought Christmas early to CARA!!!! During their "You Buy, We Give" campaign this summer, the Hollywood Feed Flowood store's sales proceeds went to our shelter!!! Y'all, there are no words to describe what this meant for our babies! 2,700 pounds of Fromm, and a ton of treats and other items!!! To say we were humbled would be a huge understatement!!! We loved Hollywood Feed way before this huge donation, as they do so much for their rescue community. It means so much to have the support of these folks, and I know that our rescue community would totally agree. Hollywood Feed, Hollywood Feed, there are truly no words to thank you enough for your generosity. You are such a blessing to all of us in rescue. We are so fortunate to have Hollywood Feed in our area and the support that you bring. From all of us at CARA and all of the babies that we love and care for, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
