CARA -- Community Animal Rescue & Adoption, Inc., is a True No Kill animal shelter located in Jackson, MS, that cares for an average of 300 dogs and 120 cats daily. We do not receive any funding from the city, county, state or federal government and operate exclusively through the generosity of our community by private donations from individuals, businesses, & fundraising events. Our primary goals are to place our adoptable pets in loving, caring homes and to educate the public on responsible pet ownership including why spay/neuter is so important. Please donate to our cause and volunteer as we strive to better the lives of pets in Mississippi.
Our Adoption Process...
We require an application be submitted and reviewed by our Adoption Committee. Adoption fees that cover vaccination, spay and neuter services apply.
