Founded in 2009 by Perla Medina-Kinne and inspired by Maverick’s plight and health issues, Angel’s Rest’s mission is to provide solutions to the immediate needs of unwanted animals who have no place to go other than a kill-shelter to face euthanization, die alone in the streets or die abandoned at the end of a chain. Our goal is to take animals out of situations where they would be facing imminent danger and provide them with a comfortable place to spend the remainder of their lives, no matter how long it maybe. We take in abused, neglected, sick, old or otherwise unwanted animals and strive to provide everyone that enters our doors with the care they need and deserve to ensure that they live out the rest of their lives in peace, comfort, well fed and loved. While we deal mostly with older residents that will reside in our sanctuary for the remaining of their days, we do rescues and have pets for adoption. Of the animals rescued, some will be entering our ELDER PAWS(TM) program as long as their temperament match with program requirements.
We at Angel's Rest excel at providing critical care and physical/emotional rehabilitation for large and giant dog breeds. We are especially fond of the mastiff breeds. We understand that in this bad economic times, the larger dogs are ending up in shelters in record numbers. We have a high success record of turning around, or controlling, life-threatening conditions so that the animal is once again healthy, comfortable and/or pain free. We take pride in providing the animals that enter the sanctuary doors with a home environment that promotes happiness, healing and a sense of belonging. Because Angel’s Rest currently operates out of the founder’s and volunteers’ residences, we are limited in the number of animals we can help.
Our Adoption Process...
Our organization requires a pre-adoption application and an adoption agreement (can be found on and downloaded from our website) There is also a required home visit, either by one of our staff or if not local by an organization locally to potential adopter. Our dogs have an adoption donation of $150.00 The cats adoption fee is $20.00 (there are some that can be adopted for a reduced fee due to health issues or age.)
Humane America Animal Foundation, dba Adopt-a-Pet.com, is a non-profit, tax-deductible 501(c)(3) adoption advertising charity. Our mission (and passion) is to help
get homeless pets out of the shelters and into loving homes. Let us know what you think! Suggestion & Comment Box
