There are numerous animals in need of a good home in our community. Harris Teeter and Operation C.A.R.E. (Carolina Animal Rescue Effort) want to make it more affordable for you to welcome a new pet into your family.

Operation C.A.R.E. is a non-profit animal welfare organization who provides temporary care for animals until they are placed in permanent homes. Becky Drillings, President of Operation C.A.R.E., says "It is nice to have a different avenue to expose our rescued animals to the public and Harris Teeter gave us that."

Harris Teeter has teamed up with Purina® to offer a pet coupon book to provide new parents with extra savings on the items they will need. Included is a CD-ROM to help you learn about responsible pet ownership and how to establish good pet care habits throughout all stages of their development.

Even if you can't invite a new member into your family right now, there are many other ways to support Operation C.A.R.E. Stop by and donate pet food, leashes, cat litter, toys, or any other items that will help keep our best friends happy and healthy. Hot dogs will be on sale, so you can fill your belly while supporting a great cause. All proceeds will go to Operation C.A.R.E.
