The Cari Stailey Memorial Emergency Medical Fund
The animal rescue community suffered a loss on October 5, 2014 with the tragic death of Cari Stailey, age 32, of Etters. Cari was a graduate of Red Land High School and worked as an Insurance Administrator for Eric Unger, DDS, Mechanicsburg.
Cari was the proud mom of two rescued dogs, Rondo and Brinn. Cari lived for Rondo and Brinn; they were like her children, and she spared no expense for them. Sadly, Brinn passed away in Cari’s arms a few weeks before Cari was killed. Cari will be remembered by all who loved her as a giving, lovely person with a huge heart. She was always trying to make the world a better place for those who were less fortunate.
In memory of Cari, CPAA has named its Emergency Medical Fund in her memory. This fund helps to pay the medical bills for stray or abandoned dogs and cats with severe injuries or illnesses, who are rescued by CPAA or its member rescues.
HOPE (Hounds of Prison Education)
Pairing needy dogs with inmates for training and behavioral rehabilitation so the dogs can move on to be adopted.
The HOPE (Hounds of Prison Education) Program was launched in March of 2005 in an effort to help more homeless animals find their way into forever homes. Sponsored by the Central Pennsylvania Animal Alliance (CPAA), the HOPE Program works in conjunction with the PA State Correctional Institute at Camp Hill and CPAA member rescues. The program pairs carefully screened inmates with needy dogs for a period of several weeks to several months. The inmates work together with a professional trainer, prison staff and HOPE volunteers to provide the dogs with basic obedience training, socialization, behavior modification and one-on-one attention. The dogs involved in the program graduate with a wealth of valuable skills that help give them a paw up on finding a home. READ MORE...
