News

Donations of cat litter, cleaning supplies, and donations are needed. All donations are tax deductible. If you would like to donate supplies you can call 919-774-9433 and set up an appointment or you are welcome to visit the shelter during our open hours. If you would like a tax receipt please include your name and address with your donation. For more information on how to sponsor an animal or donate please visit CARA's Home Page.

We cannot do this without your help. We desperately need committed volunteers willing to work a variety of jobs. Please contact us if you would like to help. Even one day a month would be wonderful! If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up as a volunteer with us!


Who We Are

The Mission of Carolina Animal Rescue & Adoption is to promote and provide responsible care and treatment of all animals. CARA is an independent non-profit organization that provides shelter and care to domestic companion animals until we can find them loving responsible homes, or reunite lost pets with their guardians. We are dedicated to forming relationships with other animal welfare agencies in order to create life-saving options for the homeless, abandoned, and displaced animals. We are volunteer ran and operated, and appreciate donations of any kind! :-)

** Please ensure the shelter you adopt your new family member from has a current inspection and license on file with the state the shelter resides therin. CARA is fully licensed by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and proudly displays our inspection certificate. Many small non profit shelters just like CARA work very hard to ensure the animals within the shelters care are taken care of, however there are some large shelters that do not. Thank you for looking to adopt a shelter pet, and please help other private shelters by supporting those who follow the regulations and therefore taking care of the animals we all love!**
