How to filter specific file types when importing in Lightroom

I'm working on relearning some of my Lightroom skills after a long hiatus and am using a Mac.  On a recent photo shoot, I realized I had RAW(Canon CR2) and JPG capture set.  Fortunately, I didn't just have JPG set!!  Obviously I'd prefer to just import the RAW files to work on and store in the cloud.


When I click to "add photos", from my SD card, it shows all the photos (both RAW and JPG), but I can't see an obvious way to filter the window so I only import the RAW photos.  There are over 1,000 photos on the card, so individual selction will take a long time.  


Does anyone know how I can set it up to only import the RAW files and skip the JPG files?  If there isn't a way, is there an easy way to do this, post-import?


Thanks so much for your help!
