My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

This beautiful fur baby's name is Willow and is she approximately 2 years old. She is a very sweet and friendly girl who loves attention. She is currently vaccinated, micro-chipped and heart worm negative. The clinic that originally vaccinated her couldn't tell if she was spayed and because we didn't want to put her through unnecessary spay surgery we decided to wait to see if she went into heat. She hasn't exhibited any signs of going into heat in the year we have had her so we believe she is spayed. If after she is adopted, she should go into heat, we will pay for her spay surgery at a vet of our choosing. Willow would be a great family dog. She has a lot of energy and because she is still the "perfect dog" in training, needs some work in some basic training. She knows the sit command but in her excitement to get attention from humans she might jump up and put her paws on them which could be overpowering for small children, therefore, we believe she would be a better fit for families with larger children. She is friendly towards other dogs and we believe she will do great with any dog that is playful in nature with an even tempered personality but would be fine in an only dog family as long as she received a lot of attention from her family and daily exercise. She currently is fostered on property that has a lot of room for exploring. Willow does lose her winter coat starting in the spring so her fur does need to be raked to remove the loosened fur. She seems to enjoy it (and the attention she gets during the process). If you feel this wonderful girl would fit into your lifestyle please email us at for a pre-adoption questionnaire which is part of the adoption process. Once reviewed, if it appears your home would be the right fit for her we can schedule a meet and greet. Her adoption fee is $200.  We also conduct home visits as part of the adoption process, therefore she is not available out of state.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

***Adopting a New Friend:Our adoption process consists of filling out a pre-adoption questionnaire, which is then reviewed by an ARNT representative. If adopter is approved, a home visit will be scheduled at a convenient time for the potential adopter. If the home is approved, the adoption contract will be signed and the adoption fee paid. The dog then becomes the adoptive pet of the adopter. We do not ship dogs. Our adoption fee runs between $100 or $350 depending on the type of dog. This fluctuation is to compensate for cost of the vet work that goes into some animals. We may have a puppy that gets adopted for $100.00 that we have spent $300.00 in vet care. The higher fee on the more desirable dogs help cover this expense. We don't make a profit by getting a higher adoption fee on some dogs, as some people would think. We always have very high vet bills at numerous vets in the area.
***Adoption Fee Includes:
*Vet records
*Age appropriate shots
*Heart Worm Tests
*Heartworm preventive up to date(if dog is heartworm positive, they will be treated)
*Any other vet care needed while in our care
*Any training given while in our care

***Our Policy. Each of our dogs is adopted as an indoor family pet, not as a outdoor watchdog, a breeding dog, or a fighting dog. Each adopted animal must be spayed/neutered, even full breed or pedigreed animals. This is not an optional procedure, and it is mandated by city ordinances. The full adoption process is required for each applicant. Adopters are expected to keep their new pet current on all vaccinations, heartworm prevention, & other vet care as needed. Home visits are to insure there is proper shelter and provisions for the pet; that there is a secure fence around the property and to introduce the new pet to existing pets in the home, if any, in order to test their compatibility. The adopted animal is usually delivered to the new family at the time the home visit is performed.

***In some cases, we will take pets back if they are no longer able to stay in your home. Depending on the space and availability of foster home.

Go meet their pets

We do not have a shelter facility. Each of us foster dogs in our homes. Adoptions can be done during the week at the foster family's convenience. We hold adoptions on Saturday or Sunday (12-5) at the Petco in Mansfield off Fm157 (South Cooper) and Hwy 287

More about this rescue

Angel's Rescue was founded by Betty Wiley in 2000, however her plight began years earlier when she became concerned at the number of dogs being abandoned at a local lake. She at first began taking food and water out to them each day and eventually she was able to pick some of them up, take them to the vet for the appropriate health care, then find loving homes for them. Most of our dogs are either rescued from the lake, strays or from local animal shelters.

Angel’s Rescue is a small non-profit 501(c)3 group comprised of volunteers who dedicate themselves to rescuing dogs. We are a “no–kill” rescue group, operating solely on donations. We do not receive any type of government or institutional funding.
