Raise the Woof In 2017

From a 20 year old empty building to an innovative animal shelter, see how we are starting fresh!

To the naked eye, it's a huge project. To us, WORTH IT!

We took off the roof and there was...

Blue sky and a doggone lot of possibilities!

14,000 square feet of possibilities, to be exact.

So we went to work, because a lot of animals are depending on us.

And we worked...

And worked...

and worked some more...

because we know that animal sheltering has to become better in our area of the country.

We are on the path to dramatically improve Clarksdale's animal sheltering. We believe this renovation is vital for the community and will be a positive space for all of the people and strays of Coahoma County.

Our new building will include:

  • Indoor kennels for ALL dogs
  • Separate cat area
  • Multiple adoption rooms
  • Medical room
  • Isolation areas
  • Quarantine room
  • Education area
  • Glass-front puppy pens
  • Public grooming
  • Play yards
  • Volunteer space
  • A walking trail

We've made significant progress but need your support to finish construction. Please consider making a tax-free donation to the Raise the Woof Capital Campaign today!

CARES Clarksdale is a 501c3 nonprofit that currently runs all aspects of the former Clarksdale Animal Shelter.
