The first word that comes to mind when I think of CARA is 'blessing'. Cara is made up of loving people who are nothing short of earth angels. These angels work miracles on the many needy animals that come into CARA. Many of which, anyone else would have given up all hope on. Our sweet Francis being just one of many examples. These angels give heart & soul to save these babies, including round the clock care when needed, out of pocket funds when necessary, the list just goes on & on. Many of these babies are, honestly, rejects, pets that have never known what human love looks like or feels like. To see these babies go from knowing no love or compassion to finding that there are humans who do love them passionately and unconditionally is the most heartwarming experience on the planet. Add to all of this the fact that this shelter is kept amazingly clean! I would have never thought it possible to keep everything so clean & orderly if I had I not been there to see it firsthand. I've seen how hard they work to ensure a clean & healthy environment for the many animals. It is through total devotion that they are able to accomplish this. I wish the entire rescue community could see how things are done at CARA. They are quite the example! They have inspired me more than words could ever say. I have never seen such dedication & devotion in my life. A day spent at CARA is the most uplifting experience one could imagine. There is no better way to spend a day than to see God working through these angels that He has placed there to love & protect His small creatures. The animals there are so loved, and you can see that with every animal in their care. Sometimes, I almost feel badly when an animal is being visited by a prospective adopter, because these animals feel so safe & secure in the arms of these angels. Life to them is awesome, they don't think they are missing anything at all, for they have it all, right there in their own little piece of Heaven. Yes, CARA is most definitely a blessing to our community & to our city, through rescuing, rehabilitating, re-homing, & providing education as well. I would hate to see where we would be without them, and I pray that we never have to find out.
