PRAIRIEVILLE, LA — The Companion Animal Rescue of Ascension (CARA) on is holding a jambalaya fundraiser on Sunday, October 6 from 11:00 a.m. until supplies run out in the parking lot of Lowe’s Home Improvement in Gonzales, LA.
For a $5.00 donation you get a plate of sausage and pork jambalaya and bread. Funds raised will go towards the treatment of nine dogs in CARA’s adoption program undergoing treatment for heartworms. Each dog’s course of treatment can range from $240 to $350 per dog plus additional charges for blood work and x-rays.
While you are there, you can go across the street to Petsmart and visit some of CARA’s adoptable dogs and cats. They will be there between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Sundays.
