On Monday night (5/19) a beautiful resident of Jackson Mississippi shared that their local no-kill shelter is close to be shut down due to lack of funding. Below is more information on this wonderful facility. Please take the time to forward this message to every animal organization and corporation that can help! C.A.R.A. (http://carams.org/ - Community Animal Rescue & Adoption, Inc) is in desperate need of monitary donations. The following is from a local news report (read the whole story at http://www.wlbt.com/Global/story.asp?S=8341736&nav=menu119_3) Hundreds of dogs, cats, and other animals call Community Animal Rescue and Adoption home. Although most of the kittens and puppies are adopted quickly, it's the older pets that find years of sanctuary at the "no-kill" shelter. Recently lack of funding has made it hard to keep the lights on. C.A.R.A. receives no government funding or grant money. It relies solely on donations. If C.A.R.A. does not get the funding it needs, it will have to shut down and the approximately 400 animals will have to be adopted or put down. "Nobody wants to see that happen," said Cathy Gatlin, the shelter manager. "As much as we would like to we can't run on love alone. It's a real possibility." Thank you for taking the time to read this. Know that passing it on and raising the awareness of this need is 90% of the battle! Does anyone has any ideas on how to keep this organization from shutting down? Any ideas that would raise awareness of their need?
