My story

Hello! My name is Sweet Pea. I am hoping to find a home with my young son named Mr. Tiggers. I was thrown out of a vehicle and ultimately I was pregnant as well. I had an infected uterus so spaying me saved my life. I can be shy at times but am the sweetest if you let me open up!! I have been through a lot with Tiggers, so I hope we can stay together. I am spayed, up to date on vaccines and negative for FIV/FELV, will you take a chance on me??

More about this rescue

Our Mission Statement:

To promote responsible pet ownership through humane education, and to provide shelter and care to domestic companion animals until a loving, responsible home can be found, or lost pets are reunited with their guardians.

At Carolina Animal Rescue and Adoption (CARA) we are dedicated to finding permanent and loving families for the homeless dogs and cats of North Carolina. CARA began rescuing homeless animals from across N.C. in April 2003, and we have placed countless animals in wonderful homes across the country. CARA is dedicated to providing the best service possible to the animals in our care and the families who adopt from us. We take pride in adopting healthy animals and go to great lengths to pair each pet with the perfect family.

CARA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer organization that operates on individual and corporate donations and fundraising proceeds. We do not receive any funding from government agencies or national animal welfare agencies. We are very fortunate to have a caring and dedicated team of volunteers, board members, and supporters.
