C.A.R.E.’s New Pet Tag Project Adds Art & Shimmer to Adoption Center Entrance—And Helps Animals

At C.A.R.E.’s Adoption Center, an installation of silvery Pet Tags in the building’s foyer offers people a way to honor special friends, family and pets.

Community Animal Rescue Effort’s newly opened Adoption Center has added a dramatic art installation that doubles as a way of financially supporting the organization’s animal rescue work. The installation, created by C.A.R.E. volunteer Karey Uhler, consists of an array of engravable discs, or Pet Tags. The silvery two-inch tags are securely attached to hooks and mounted in a grid on a matte-black wall. Every time the Adoption Center doors open, air movement causes the array to move and catch the light.
