Initially, I adopted a dog from CARA and then overtime I began to foster dogs at CARA as well. Over the past 8 months or so of fostering dogs, I have gotten to know the staff at CARA and let me tell you...They are wonderful. They spend countless hours at the shelter and dedicate so much of their emotions, time, and life to the animals at this shelter. Without a doubt, they care about the well-being of every animal in the shelter. For instance, when I went to adopt my first dog from them I was expecting to be able to bring Lucy home that day, but this was not the case. A few days later, I was contacted and told I would be able to adopt Lucy. I was fairly impressed that they took the time to call my vet and contact my references before they would let me adopt Lucy. This showed me that CARA is not "just another animal shelter who will give a dog to anyone." I honestly wish there was something that I could do for all of the staff at CARA to show them how much they are appreciated because I have seen them pour so much of themselves into this shelter.
