Many businesses have a program in place whereby they will match donations made by their employees to a charity. Many of our supporters were not aware of this resource, a way to double the amount of their contribution to a charity of their choosing. Please visit the appropriate department at your workplace to see if they offer a corporate match.


WCCF Gives – a day of giving (typically in September each year), is an opportunity for Angel Ridge Animal Rescue to receive a “match” on donations from a pool of funds assembled by corporations and philanthropists. WCCF happens only one time each year. Contact the ARAR office for more information, or visit www.wccfgives.org.


The Give Big Pittsburgh program is typically the last Tuesday in November. ARAR and other local non-profits will be able to raise money in a single online fundraising platform during this 24 hour period’ visit the ARAR page and donate by accessing www giveispittsburgh com


You, dear Angel Ridge Animal Rescue supporters. are the Guardian Angels that help us to provide extraordinary veterinary care to our animals in the greatest need.

We never walk away from a challenge. We continually take in older, sometimes ill, or injured animals, and get them the veterinary help that they need. We help them to heal in body and in spirit. We find incredible homes for them.

By becoming a Guardian Angel to these deserving souls, you help them to heal and have a chance at a new and better life. The donation for this program is $200 annually or $50 quarterly.


A wonderful way to honor or remember a loved one is through a contribution in their name to Angel Tree of Hope. The one being remembered or honored can be a person or a pet. A card is sent to the one being remembered or family. A heart with the name of the one being remembered is added to our “Angel Tree” on the wall of our adoption office.

If you have questions or would prefer to make your donation by phone, please call our office at 724-229-7053.

You can also mail a note with your tribute information accompanied by a check made payable to Angel Ridge Animal Rescue, PO Box 94, Meadowlands, PA 15347.


Remembering ARAR in your estate planning will enable you to help our precious animals in need for years to come. You may specify a particular program that you would like to help, such as emergency veterinary care or kennel repairs and maintenance, or you may direct us to apply the contribution to our greatest needs at that particular time. There are several ways to participate in planned giving.
