Message from our President
Friends of CARA,
 First we hope you all are doing well and miss seeing you out and about at our events. Covid-19 has been hard on all of us and all charities. We depend on your support to complete our mission. We had to cancel three major fundraising events so far this year.

 We are open our regular hours by appointment only. Call the shelter for more information if you are interested in adding a new fur-baby to your family.

 June is the first full month that Estela Ruiz has been full time as our shelter manager! She as a big heart, loves all our animals and has great knowledge above animal care. Along with doing a great job running the shelter! She may even break a record for the most adoptions in a single month in June. Thank you Estela!

 It is kitten season and we have our share! Check out the adorable cats & kittens we have on our website looking for a Loving Fur-ever Home!

 We could not do what we do without support from caring members of our community like you!

Thank you,
Steve Frederick
CARA President
CARA Animal Feature

Ellie is a mixed breed lovable girl! Right now, she is going through heartworm treatment and desperately needs a foster so she can stay calm during her treatment. With Ellie being in a shelter environment, she is starting to get stressed out which is not good while she has heartworms. We are looking for a home where it will be quiet, calm, and stress free. The home needs to have a fenced in yard, no other pets, or children. Ellie enjoys toys but needs indestructible toys, such as nylon bones. Ellie is crate trained, leash trained, and housebroken. If you are interested or know anyone who is interested in fostering, please contact CARA at 919-774-9433 or cara@cara-nc.org.
