Lend a Helping Paw

Give back by participating in our animal fostering program

Help out local animals by fostering cats and dogs through our Rescue Ridge animal fostering program. You can bring home a sweet, playful pup or a cute and cuddly cat. You can foster with the intent to adopt, or provide pets with a comfortable temporary home on their way to their forever home.

We carry out plenty of animal adoptions here. If you're looking to add a dog or cat to your family, you've come to the right place. We have many adoptable cats and adoptable dogs here at our animal rescue.

Become a volunteer at our animal rescue center

When you volunteer at our animal rescue, you have the opportunity to help homeless dogs and cats lead healthy, fulfilling lives. It's a win-win situation! These animals get the care and attention they need, and you get to bond with a ton of adoptable cats and dogs.

Some responsibilities you might have include:

  • Working events
  • Handling cats and dogs
  • Fundraising
  • Cleaning kennels

Contact us today to ask about the volunteer opportunities.

Why should you adopt from Rescue Ridge?

Founded in 2001, Rescue Ridge's mission is to take in abandoned/unwanted animals (dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, pigs, donkeys, etc.) and provide them with a safe haven, veterinary care, socialization/training, and, ultimately, find them forever homes. No animal is refused care. Over its 22 years of existence, Rescue Ridge has saved the lives of and found homes for, thousands of animals.

We've been helping cats and dogs find forever homes since 2002. We always have a selection of pitties on hand, and we have a few fosters that have been with us for many years.

One of our dogs is blind and has been with us for over four years. We rehabilitate many cats and dogs, and we handle hospice dogs and cats. It's important to make sure that animals are comfortable right up to the rainbow bridge. We also host adoption events every weekend, so make sure to check one out.
