Community Animal Rescue & Adoption (CARA)

Home / Urban Living / Best Animal Shelter / Community Animal Rescue & Adoption (CARA)



The Community Animal Rescue & Adoption is a no-kill animal shelter that prides itself on placing cats and dogs into loving homes, supporting spay and neuter programs, and promoting responsible pet ownership. Private donations support the shelter that the Better Business Bureau recognizes as an accredited charity.

Anyone who is on the fence about adopting can try CARA’s Adopt A Leash program, which allows people to take a pet out for a day. People can also help by donating money and supplies or volunteering at the shelter. Those looking to adopt can find available pets in the shelter or on CARA’s website, which is updated daily. When you’ve found the one, you’ll end up on CARA’s Happy Tails page, where photos of recently adopted pets appear. For more information, visit — Alyssa Bass
