Lately, I’ve been thinking about what it means to be a friend. Like most thoughts, it was prompted by an external force, but more about that later. The dictionary defines a friend as “a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection”. A simple statement with profound meaning and what’s more, a profound feeling
Angel’s Hope, a not for profit animal rescue organization, is proud to announce the successful completion of the first year of their Spay/Neuter and Community Outreach Program in McDowell County, West Virginia. Angel’s Hope, in cooperation with veterinarians and local residents, was able to spay and neuter 38 pets so far during 2015.
My adoption story is truly a celebration of courage, trust, loyalty and hope! The recurring and consistent theme lies in hope. Hope is a passion that keeps us going through difficulties. It is the life raft we cling to instead of giving up; what my pet or myself did not know a year ago, was how she would come to give me hope and in turn I would provide her the same. To fully understand the positive impact she has made in my life, I need to recap her journey as well as mine.
You are going to want to give up, Don’t. That was the lesson that sweet Sophie brought to the Angel’s Hope community in the spring of 2013. Sophie, along with her three siblings, was rescued from a shelter in SC and came to the Angel’s Hope foster program to prepare for wonderful new lives.
It seems like just a short time ago that we met a beautiful dog named Angel on a warm sunny day in March. We did not know at the time that this special girl had a plan for us that would transform our lives. Before we met Angel, we were involved in animal rescue through transports, fostering, and other volunteer activities and enjoyed it all. We had entertained the occasional chat about starting an animal rescue organization, but did not know how or when it would come into fruition.Then came Angel!
The big day finally arrived for Smokey, Bandit and Pixie on January 4th! They made their way to meet their families and to settle in at their new homes. Although they were greeted by lots of snow, it was a warm welcome for these three sweet pups! They are all doing wonderfully and their families love them very much. Before they left they composed a song for all of their amazing friends and supporters. Enjoy!
Our inspiration for Angel’s Hope is Angel, a homeless dog that changed our lives forever and inspired us to never give up no matter how difficult the situation may be
This song and post is for you sweet Pixie, Bandit, and Smokey!
On April 10th, 2012 Angel’s Hope shared a day of celebrating Angel and the hope that she brought to our lives and to many all around the world. It was a day to share memories, give thanks to the amazing people that she has brought together over the last two years, and to honor her amazing spirit. Thank you Angel!
This handsome beagle boy was sad and defeated when we met him. Tired, scared, and covered in ticks Champ needed a champion or two to change his lonely past into a bright and happy future. He found many! From the Good Samaritan that contacted us to Mary’s Dogs to his amazing family.
What is one of the best parts of rescue work? The amazing updates we receive on our foster pups! Two very special boys have been going to puppy class and learning so many new things. Their hard work is paying off and both are now graduates of puppy obedience class. High-paws to Caden and Cash!
