About Our Shelter:Building compassionate communities in East Central Illinois and West Central Indiana is a vitally compelling mission of CARA. We are committed to ending the unnecessary killing of healthy adoptable cats and dogs by providing a safe haven dedicated to the humane treatment of, and compassion for rescued, abandoned and abused animals surrendered to us. Animals in our care, our guests, are never killed. Our guest’s length of stay with us is not determined by a predefined amount of time, but CARA’s ability to take in more guests is determined by our adoptions. We are dedicated to supporting the health and well-being of our guests by ensuring each one is examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and receives medical treatment before they are placed in stable, healthy, and loving homes. To further our mission to create compassionate communities in the counties we serve, we are devoted to reducing pet overpopulation, increasing public awareness related to animal issues, and promoting pet health by providing low-cost spay and neutering services for companion animals in our community; offering public educational programs; and supporting preventative healthcare by providing a low-cost vaccination clinic for those who would not normally seek out traditional veterinary care for their companion animal. We also work with pet owners to sustain animals in their current home by providing dietary support and consultation to mitigate, where possible, the hardships pet owners face in keeping the animal in their home.
