If you know me, then you know that I am a HUGE animal lover! We grew up with animals, big and small, so when I heard about this mural I was super excited to see it! Then when I found out that the dogs on this mural represented dogs rescued from the center, I was in love with it!

'Rescued' was painted in 2021 by Whitney Kerr III, Ryan Estel, and Jeremy Bena. A Mural Movement Experience shares the names and information about the individual dogs on their website. Here is what they shared:

Left to Right:
CAPTAIN, an American Bull dog, big boy, big personality, a favorite of several volunteers.
CASTLE, an older dog, owner surrendered, lived at CCARE for almost one full year before finding a home.
GUMBO, a fun-loving, goofball, loved the attention from the volunteers and playing in the wading pools.
BIGGIE, (on the bottom) is another favorite, loved to play and pose for photos.
JOSIE, a Staffordshire mix, favorite among CCARE volunteers, very photogenic, also found on our long sleeve t-shirts and 2022 calendar.
