Weaving Lifesaving Services

Meet Angel. 

Hoarding was all Angel knew.

Transferred to Animal Friends after being rescued from a large-scale hoarding case, Angel spent the majority of her seven years living in a hoarding situation. Beyond the overcrowding and filth, Angel had another significant challenge. She was completely deaf.

Given Angel’s history and disability, finding the right adoptive home was going to be a challenge. She would need specialized training to learn how to live safely in a home and a family willing to be patient and earn her trust.

Then in walked James.

A Navy veteran, James, along with his wife Peggy, reached out to our Animal Friends for Veterans program which helps match veterans with companion pets and supports each adoption with the resources necessary to keep the pet and veteran together.

Once the couple met Angel, they knew that she had adopted them.

Animal Friends arranged for Jim, Peggy and Angel to work with an experienced behavior trainer in their home. They’ve learned how to successfully communicate with Angel through hand cues and light touch.

Clearly, Angel doesn’t need to hear to understand the love her new family has for her. And whether it’s more training, affordable vet care or other resources to help Angel thrive, Animal Friends will always be there.

Your lifesaving gift can ensure that more animals like Angel (and the people who love them) are provided with the safety net of resources they need.

Please give generously.
