It only took me a couple of minutes to discover that these two beauties were residents of Angels Rest Animal Sanctuary. This wonderful sanctuary was started in 2009 with a mission of helping animals who have no other place to go other than a kill shelter, die alone in the streets or die abandoned at the end of a chain.
Angel's Rest takes abused, neglected, sick old or otherwise unwanted animals. They work mostly with older residents who live out their remaining days in the comfort of the sanctuary, but they also do rescues and have pets for adoption.
In addition, they have a wonderful program called ELDER PAWS! This program was designed to enhance the quality of life for elderly citizens and older animals. You can read more about it on their website. But, Lucy and I think it's fantastic. She and I both know how an animal can instantly brighten the day of someone who is older and lonely.
Angel's Rest operates out of the founders and volunteers residences. They rely solely on donations and the kindness of others. Please stop by their website and read about the wonderful work that they do, and meet Scout... Just look at that face. I bet he gives the most wonderful, slobbery kisses, if you're into that sort of thing!
Scout has a wonderful, but somewhat sad story and needs a little bit of help! Scout's life started out in a puppy mill, but thankfully he was rescued and found a wonderful forever home at Angel's Rest.
