About Our Rescue Group:

.A.R.A. Citizens for Animal Rescue and Adoption is a volunteer, non-profit organization who gives homeless animals a shelter until they find their forever homes. We have about 135 cats and 16 dogs who reside with us. We have spayed and neutered over 1200 animals and found homes for over 500 pets. C.A.R.A. takes in animals who are lost or surrendered and rehabilitates them until they are ready for adoption. We want to educate as many people as possible about the importance of adopting homeless animals and ways communities can get involved to help.
Our number one goal is to find the perfect match for our homeless pets and give them the best life we can until their forever home comes along. Products:The pets we adopt out are all up to date on vaccines, sterilized, microchipped, & have also had flea and ear treatment. We highly promote the importance of spaying and neutering & the effect it has on the pet overpopulation crises America is facing. C.A.R.A. has many goals for the future and we look forward to seeing them unfold.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
