Justin Mayfield -- Volunteer Volunteer -- Danni Daivd Fonchee -- CARA Volunteer 




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:

  • Fundraising events
  • Picking up donated items at drop-off locations and taking them to Shelter
  • Generating Sponsorships
  • Volunteering at the CARA shelter
  • Volunteering at Adoption Events
  • Transporting CARA pets to and from vet's offices and events

    We ask that all prospective volunteers attend shelter orientation. 

Contact Matthew Holmes for more information on CCC at --  holmes.matthew.r@gmail.com

Volunteer at the Shelter:  The Shelter always needs volunteers to bathe and groom, socialize the animals, clean kennels, help with laundry - the list of the everyday work the Staff does that is necessary to keep our dogs and cats neat and tidy is a long list for the many dogs and cats that live at CARA right now.

To get our volunteers off to the best start, we ask that anyone wanting to volunteer with CARA attend orientation.  Orientation is held the second Saturday of every month at 9:00am at the Shelter. (Please check our calendar for dates for Orientation.)  

If you have any questions please contact us at 601-922-7575 or email cara@carams.org.

You must be 16 yrs old to volunteer. A prospective volunteer who is under 18 years of age must be accompanied to orientation by a parent who can sign a permission slip for their child.

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 surrounding or are taking special medications that need to be monitored.
