Companion Animal Rescue of Ascension (C.A.R.A.) is a non-profit organization which was formed for the purpose of saving animals at risk in community and shelter settings through a foster and adoption program. This will include proper vaccinations as well as spaying/neutering of all animals rescued.

What We Do

When saving and nurturing the lives of companion animals, it raises us up as a society.

We are a newly formed group of volunteers who have been involved in rescuing animals independently as well as with other groups. We saw a need outside of Baton Rouge and we were offered a wonderful adoption venue, so we are going to work very hard to recruit volunteers who will share our passion and continue to come up with ways to save as many animals as possible and place them in loving forever-homes.


Come meet us and the lovely animals looking for their forever home.

We try to rescue as many animals in need as possible and find them loving homes. Simple, no?

  • You can foster an animal and see them go from rescue animal to a happy member of a new family.

  • You can provide support for our busy fosters by transporting pets to their appointments or adoption events.

  • You can take part in the Luv-a-Pet program, taking care of our Petsmart kitties.
