Our Gathering of Guardian Angels at Angel Ridge Animal Rescue

Angels at Angel Ridge Animal Rescue

We are deaf, blind, old, crippled and weak,
Confused, scared, uncertain and meek.
Once starved, neglected, beaten, cast off or over-bred;
At last we have food, shelter, veterinary care and a warm bed.

No longer do we have the fear of being euthanized,
Respect, love, kindness and health are now realized.
Freedom from being trapped in cages and tied out;
It&s a much happier life we now lead, without a doubt.

We are finally at a truly no-kill sanctuary, safe and sound;
Angel Ridge surpasses any abusive home, shelter or pound.
Some of us may eventually be adopted, some won't.
But, if you're feeling sorry for us, please don't.

Our forever home will be Angel Ridge Animal Rescue,
Where we will feel joy and we won't be blue.
"Guardian Angel" we hope you'll be,
It will make you feel good - it's a guarantee!

Yours truly,
The "Angels" in the Guardian Angel program

Please join.... Our Gathering of Guardian Angels

At a rescue and sanctuary, our mission is to provide shelter and care to animals in need and to attempt to find them loving, forever homes. We have always opened our doors to the neediest animals.

In our facility today we have dogs that have been forced to live outside on a chain, sleeping in their own feces. We have old dogs that were abandoned by their families. Recently we accepted many dogs with mange and other severe skin conditions, lyme and heartworm disease, and severe parasite infestation. Not long ago, sweet beagle Gracie came to us from a high skill shelter. We learned that she has diabetes and needs insulin for the rest of her life.

Our cat rescues come to us with similar problems. Kitty Mickey has chronic eye problems and will need medication for the rest of his life. What we have learned over the years is that with time, the love of our volunteers and proper veterinary care, a family will eventually meet them, fall in love, and take them home. THIS IS WHERE OUR GUARDIAN ANGELS COME IN TO HELP.

Our veterinary bills and medicines average approximately $25,000 per year. The sponsorship of our Guardian Angels has helped us tremendously to pay these bills. We previously assigned one of our animals in need to a Guardian Angel sponsor. We would like to change this concept to establish the “Gathering of Guardian Angels” so that your contribution can be used to assist many of our special angels in need.

Current Guardian Angel sponsors will automatically be enrolled in the Gathering of Guardian Angels. Our website will have a new page so that you can follow the life of many of our animals that are being helped. The annual sponsorship will remain at $200 per year, or $50 paid quarterly. Please consider becoming an Angel for the Gathering of Guardian Angels. Complete the Guardian Angel form here to become a Guardian Angel. Some of our special needs animals are shown on this page. God Bless!

Dogs

Gracie

Gracie is a beautiful hound mix and she is about 6-7 yrs. old.  She is easy to walk on the leash and loves to go for walks and cuddle.  

Recently Gracie was diagnosed with diabetes and will require to have insulin the rest of her life.  Diabetes is a very manageable disease and she will need an owner that  can take care of her needs.  This poor girl has not had a very good life so far.  She had been "dumped" by her owner and has found her way to Angel Ridge.  

Loretta

Loretta is a senior female hound mix.  She has been in a foster home for quite sometime with her human mom Margie.

She has a large, inoperable mamamarian tumor and many small tumors on her body. These and other issues were a result of her over-breeding.

Trent

Trent is a Chow mix who is about 5-6 yrs. old.  He has lived outside his entire life, sometimes without food or water.  He was full of parasites and in very poor condition when he arrived @ Angel Ridge.  Trent did not know what it was like to live in a safe warm place.  Living in a kennel is no life for any dog but to Trent this was a palace.  Trent is now parasite free and but is still being treated for Lyme disease which is a very treatable condition.  Our sweet boy is still looking for a family that will give him a good home.
