CCARE Shelter At Capacity, Recommends Ways For Community To Help

By Quinn O’Hara

Clay County Animal Rescue and Education Center is currently at housing capacity.

Shelter Manager Jon Rieb says patience is key when waiting for assistance with adoptions and stray dogs:

Rieb stresses the importance of verifying the dog is lost and has run away from home before contacting CCARE. Rieb says it is also important to call the shelter before arriving with the dog:

Rieb says that at 15 dogs, the shelter is at capacity. Adoptions greatly help to lower this number and open up spaces for new dogs to be helped. Those wishing to donate are encouraged to bring dog food, toilet paper and cleaning supplies, dog treats, blankets, and other related items to the shelter.
