Abilene - A2013028: Labrador Retriever Dog aged 6 years 8 months

Abilene was found in a box with four siblings near the dumpster at the laundromat on Flag Chapel Rd at about two months old. Unfortunately, she is one of the many great shelter dogs that has been overlooked simply because she is black.

Bell - A2020017: Corgi/Australian Shepherd Dog aged 2 years 5 months

Bell was rescued from life on chain. She is extremely shy at first but she absolutely loves other dogs. She loves to run and play in the water. Once she warms up to people, she wags her little nub tail like crazy. She would do best in a home with a secure fence and another confident, friendly dog to help bring her out of her shell.

Tiny Chevy was found in a box with 6 siblings at the nearby store by an employee. He was adopted with his sister, and was returned by adopter. They said that he had become aggressive with her. In the shelter, he is a sweetheart with humans, but doesn't care much for other dogs. He would do best as an only pup.

Crystal - A2013004: German Shepherd Dog/Hound Dog aged 7 years 1 month

Meet Crystal, a Shepherd mix who has spent most of her life at the shelter. She was adopted as puppy and returned to us. We believe Crystal now has a hard time trusting humans and would need a very attentive adopter who is serious about adopting her and making a difference in her life.

Daisy2 ( Gianna) - A2014199: German Shepherd Dog/Chow Chow Dog aged 5 years 10 months

Daisy (shelter name Gianna) came into the shelter as part of a litter. They were found living under a mattress on the side of a road. They were very young and not social. Daisy was adopted in December of 2014, and returned in July of 2018. During that time, she was given to relatives and left outside to live. When she came back, it was very clear that she had had little to no socialization. Daisy very slowly came out of her shell and showed her sweet nature. She will need an understanding, patient adopter who is willing to work with her at her pace, with love and kindness. Because of her history, we feel she will need to be adopted by someone without children, definitely not young children.

Luigi - A2014027: Labrador Retriever/Chow Chow Dog aged 5 years 11 months

Luigi came in as part of a litter of five. They were stray and living under a mattress on the side of a road. The puppies were very young and not social. Most likely because of that, and the fact that he has lived his entire life in a shelter, Luigi is very timid and unsure of most people. He will need to be adopted by someone who is very patient and gentle, and willing to work with him at his pace. He is a sweet boy when around the few people that he knows and trusts. He had a volunteer who spent time with him for an many months. During that time, he came out of his shell and showed much promise, so we believe he would learn to trust again. Since he has no history of being around children, he cannot be adopted to a family with young children.

Magnolia - A2011025: Pit Bull Terrier Dog aged 9 years 10 months

In April 2011, this little angel was found as a scared young pup, starving for food, tied to a doghouse...abandoned. Now safe at CARA, she is still starved, but this time it's for attention. She absolutely adores humans, but doesn't like other dogs so we are looking for that special family that's only interested in having one fur baby! Come to the shelter and meet our sweet Mag.

Melinda - A2011026: Labrador Retriever/American Shelter Dog Dog aged 9 years 0 months

MY ADOPTION FEE HAS BEEN PAID by a Donor in Nov 2013! Please come meet me, take me to the dog park. My name is Melinda. I am an adult Lab/Collie Mix. I've been here at CARA since 2012. I'm told black dogs are passed on by so many and I can tell you for the most part we are. We are the most common too. Overall we are just as lovable I've had interest and was almost adopted in 2017 from a family who had just moved here from another country but sadly on my adoption day they received bad news that changed their course. They did come to the shelter and told me themselves. So here I sit waiting. While I love my CARA caretaker and volunteers we all want our own family and home. We are really just as neat and loving as any other dog here. I am looking for someone to be patient with me since I've lived a shelter life for so long. **Unfortunately I'm no longer interested in sharing so I will need to be the only pup in the family.

Meritt - A2015212: Hound Dog aged 6 years 6 months

This handsome boy is Meritt. And yes, he is just as sweet as he is handsome. Meritt was found as a stray in December of 2015 and brought to the shelter. He's about 3 years old, a perfect #LoveMebreed, and beyond ready to find his family. Our sweet boy is a big 'ol boy, with a heart bigger than he is. He still enjoys toys as much as he did when he came to us, and he is very entertained with toys. But his favorite activity is romping and playing outside on a beautiful day. He is still very puppy-like when he's outside in his play yard, running and playing with everything he has in him. Meritt is pure joy to be around and we can only imagine how awesome he would be if given the chance to live in a normal home with a loving family. Please consider coming to meet this special baby, chances are he is exactly what you are looking for. If you are interested in adopting this pet, please visit www.carams.org for information on our Adoption Process and to fill out an online adoption application. Breed identification by visual means is unreliable for most dogs. We are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. Each dog at CARA is an individual and we do our best to describe each animal based on personality, not by breed label.

Nathan - A2011027: Labrador Retriever/Crossbreed Dog aged 11 years 1 month

This good looking boy is still hoping his hero is out there. He's been overlooked by so many visitors to the shelter. He doesn't stand out like his lighter fluffy friends in the front so getting noticed amongst 125 other dogs is pretty hard. Despite it all, he hasn't given up and we know and believe Nathan's hero is out there! He's a great dog who would make some lucky individual an incredible, loyal best friend. With a little patience during his transition from shelter life and some basic training the sky is the limit for Nathan. We guarantee his lucky adopter will wonder in the end who rescued who. Come meet this fellow today. Adoption fee waived for Senior dogs.

Odell - A2012008: Shepherd Dog aged 9 years 6 months

Meet Odell. This pretty boy was found in a neighborhood wearing a harness back in 2012. After no one claimed him he was brought to CARA. Odell has since been adopted and brought back due to his lack of love for other 4 legged animals. He is great with humans though and loves everyone he meets. He's looking to be the one and only fur baby in his next home. Come by the shelter and meet Odell.

Peanut Butter - D2019047: Hound/Labrador Retriever Dog aged 1 year 7 months

Peanut Butter came from a city shelter extremely evacuated and with blunt force trauma to his head. Thankfully, he recovered well and is somehow still so sweet and loving. He gets along well with everyone, though he does like to chase kitties. He would do best in a home with a fenced yard and lots of love and patience, as he has separation anxiety.

Robin / Sparrow - D2012001: American Shelter Dog Dog aged 8 years 2 months

Meet Robin. She and her siblings came to CARA as small puppies in 2012. We rescued them from a bad part of town with little human contact. Robin is very shy and needs an adopter who will have patience with her as she transitions from shelter life into a forever home. She's the perfect size dog and we believe with a dedicated human by her side she will come out of her shell and make an awesome loyal companion. Come meet her at the shelter today. She is bonded with her sister, Sparrow.
