Ok, went to the website. Looked at puppies. There are some cute ones on there. Does anyone know why on some of the puppies it states that the dog must stay in mississippi??? Wouldn't a home be a home, whatever state it was in???
fellow Mississippian!I am the office manager for CARA. The reason of animals staying in MS is because those dogs are being placed from individual's homes and are being helped by CARA. Most of the dogs were found by these people & held at their home because of lack of room & money to care for them. A lot of these dogs are not even available by the time someone shows interest in them. Our contract states that all dogs must be returned to CARA if unable to keep. Those that are being placed owner to owner would not be known as CARA dogs. We would have no record of them and not know for sure that we did help place them. It would be hard to transport a dog out of state because of this. Most of these owners would have no contract nor application for us to verify their adoption. We like to be able to follow up on the dogs from the shelter & can't do that for those we help place from homes. I hope this helps people understand the reason for dogs to be adopted in MS only.
