CCARE Recognized for Save Rate

By Trish Svoboda

In October, the Clay County Animal Rescue & Education Center received recognition from the Best Friends Animal Society for achieving a 90% save rate in 2022. That means the shelter successfully rescued over 90% of the dogs that came in the shelter last year.

This achievement is a result of the dedicated CCARE staff, board, and volunteers. The mission of the non-profit is to find permanent, loving homes for animals, provide a safe place for animals in transition, educate the public, serve as advocates for pets and their people, and work to end overpopulation. A haven where animals can be evaluated, medically treated, and rehabilitated as needed.

Without the continued support of the community, its mission would not be possible.
