Mission statement

To rehabilitate the Laguna Pit Bulls saved from a dog-fighting ring and help them find forever homes.


In March 2012, an estimated 266 pit bulls were rescued from a dog-fighting syndicate. Many of the animals were found in very poor health. They were cruelly chained to posts buried in filthy mud with nothing more than cut-out steel drums for shelter. They were malnourished, many with wounds inflicted during dog-fighting. Many were suffering from exposure to the elements. Despite medical care, many dogs perished or had to be put to sleep to end their suffering. Today, 89 dogs remain and CARA continues to medicate them daily because of their ill health–a result of the poor living conditions and lack of medical care in the hands of the dog fighters. CARA wants these surviving dogs to get a chance to live normal lives. But they cannot do it alone. Please help out! These guys need a second chance--a warmer, happier life.
