Ongoing — Angel Ridge Animal Rescue Needs Supply Donations

Angel Ridge Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) no-kill shelter & sanctuary for dogs, cats & horses. Located on a 50 acre farm, Angel Ridge provides a permanent home & cares for animals that are not adoptable due to their age, handicap, breed, or temperament. We also provide temporary homes (with the ultimate goal of securing permanent homes) for animals that are adoptable, but who cannot get a place in a traditional shelter or who have medical problems that preclude them from living in a shelter; animals that will not adapt well to a traditional shelter or have been in a shelter for an extended period of time & animals living in a shelter who have become aggressive due to their environment & are re-trainable, but in danger of being euthanized in the shelter scenario.

Angel Ridge is always in need of supplies to keep their rescue mission going. Things like: Purina One dog food & cat food. Dog & cat toys & treats & cleaning supplies. For a detailed list, click here & visit Angel Ridge. Read the monthly “Angel Gazette” for the latest on what’s going on & remember to adopt — don’t buy!
