Mississippi Animal Shelter -- CARA, Community Animal Rescue and Adoption

Adoptable Pets Help CARA Events Donate

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. Click HERE for Shelter hours and complete contact info.

Featured Pet

Meet Giselle! We are not sure exactly what our sweet girl is. Maybe some Lab with a little of this or a little of that thrown in, but what we do know is that she is a beautiful mix of something. She's about a year old. Giselle is a lover of all people and she seems to do fine with dogs. We haven't seen her dislike anyone, although as you can tell, she is not a camera hog by any stretch! She is as playful as a puppy and loves spending time outside in the sunshine when the temperature feels good. She has been nothing but happy since the day she was rescued, just thrilled to get fed and taken outside everyday, and she absolutely loves the attention she gets. Giselle would be a great companion pup and would be equally as good in an active family with children. We really think our girl would be great in any loving home. She would definitely need a fenced in yard, as we know she has rambling in her past and we sure don't want that to happen again. Stop by the shelter and meet Giselle.
