Here at Animal Angel Aid, we love to feature adoptable animals from rescues across the country to help them get their #OverlookedRescueAngels adopted. Each week, our social media team searches for different rescues and shelters nationwide for these adoptable animal features! Do you know of a rescue or shelter that deserves a shoutout, or an animal who has been waiting far too long for a home? Reach out to us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/AnimalAngelAid and let us know! We may feature your recommendation in the future. This week, January 4 – 10, we will be featuring animals from the following rescues on our Facebook page:
Operation CARE – Carolina Animal Rescue Effort, SC:
Operation C.A.R.E. (Carolina Animal Rescue Effort) is a Rock Hill, SC non-profit, NO KILL, 501c3 all volunteer animal welfare organization saving animals in the Carolinas since 1990. Our Rescue-Adoption Program focuses primarily on the rescue of animals from high kill rural area shelters. However, we do occasionally attempt to help good Samaritans in the community who have found homeless or abandoned animals who are destined for shelters. Donations make it possible for us to continue our efforts. We are solely supported by donations and receive no other funding. Animals up for adoption through Operation C.A.R.E. have been fully vaccinated and spayed or neutered. Dogs have been tested for heartworms and cats have been tested for FeLV and FIV. These animals are cared for in foster homes where their personality and behavior can be assessed for the most appropriate permanent home.
Our mission is to minimize the need for euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets in local Carolina shelters by providing a low-cost spay/neuter option to people in the community and by providing temporary care for homeless animals until they can be placed in quality permanent homes.
Adoptable Animals: dogs, cats, horses, small animals, barnyard
Lewis County Humane Society, NY:
The Lewis County Humane Society is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation which owns and operates a no-kill animal shelter on the Pine Grove Rd in Glenfield, NY. Our shelter relies on the generosity of our supporters because shelter expenses far exceed our revenue. We greatly appreciate all your support which enables us to care for and find new homes for all the wonderful animals at our shelter.
The Lewis County Humane Society’s mission is to prevent cruelty and abuse in Lewis County and to provide education on humane treatment of animals to both adults and children of Lewis County.

Every Pet Needs a Home, OH:
Every Pet Needs a Home is based out of the state of Ohio. We are registered with the Secretary of State as a Non Profit. We are also registered with the Department of Agriculture and are a tax exempt 501(c)(3). Every Pet Needs a Home is foster based and we do not currently have a shelter. We believe this to be beneficial because every animal that comes into the rescue receives focused care and we are able to see the animal’s full personality to find them the perfect placement. Our rescue is not species or breed specific and aim to help every animal who needs our help.
Adoptable Animals: small animals, dogs, cats.
Washington Alaskan Malamute Adoption League, WA:
Washington Alaskan Malamute Adoption League (WAMAL) was formed in 1998 by Cindy Neely to help with Malamute Rescue in Washington State and since then has expanded into Oregon. WAMAL rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes Malamutes (or Mal-enough-a-mutes!) who, through no fault of their own, find themselves without a home or in need of a new home.
Serving the greater Northwest we are also part of a national rescue network, AMAL, that covers other areas of the US. WAMAL provides hope to families that must rehome their malamutes when life has taken a sharp detour; training support to those families desperately working to keep their 4-legged family members; works with shelters and takes into rescue strays and those pups needing an extra level of thoroughness in the adoption process; and, actively recruits adopters and foster homes.
We are a 100% volunteer run, 501c.3 non-profit organization that is celebrating over 20 years! Our volunteers come from all walks of life and locations and WAMAL is only able to do what we do because of this generous and dedicated team of volunteers. They truly make it possible to save the lives of this gentle, stubborn, and loving working breed. WAMAL has rescued many hundreds of malamutes to date and each holds a place in our hearts.

Animal Allies Florida, FL:
Animal Allies Florida was founded in December 2010 to help animals in our community. Many of us had been doing this work for years on our own, out of our own pockets. By creating Animal Allies, we can apply for grants, fundraise and join programs that support our efforts. We can combine forces, share knowledge, and support each other, instead of trudging along on our own. Originally called Emerald Coast Animal Allies or ECAA for short, we changed our name in 2015 because many people though ECAA meant Escambia County Animal Shelter. Although we support the county animal shelter’s efforts to become no kill, we don’t wish to be associated with them because we ARE NO KILL meaning no healthy animal is put down.
Adoptable Animals: cats, dogs, small animals.
Save the Animals Foundation, OH:
Funded entirely by donations and operated by volunteers, our no-kill shelter currently homes over 300 dogs and cats, many of whom have been abused, abandoned or literally tossed away. Teams of volunteers work with the animals two shifts a day, 365 days a year, providing them with a safe and caring environment until we can place them in permanent, loving homes. Over the years we have matched thousands of lucky animals with equally lucky families.

Friends of Unwanted Rabbits, CA:
Friends of Unwanted Rabbits (FUR) is a rabbit rescue organization founded in 2004. We are dedicated to finding forever, loving, indoor homes for abandoned and neglected rabbits dumped at local area shelters. Our goal is to increase public awareness of these intelligent, social creatures as house pets. We are committed to improving the lives of companion rabbits through education on proper rabbit care. We support spaying and neutering rabbits to improve overall health, behavior and to decrease overpopulation.
FUR rescues rabbits abandoned at local area shelters. The main shelter we rescue from is the Bradshaw Animal Shelter. Rabbits are spayed/neutered and placed in temporary foster homes where they receive much needed TLC while they recover. All rabbits are litter box trained and socialized before being housed at PetCo adoption center, located at 855 East Bidwell Street in Folsom, CA. Some of our rabbits stay in foster homes until they are adopted and are not housed at PetCo due to their size and/or special needs. Volunteers care for the rescued rabbits housed at PetCo and provide exercise and socialization time outside their cages. The rabbits are adopted to carefully screened indoor homes by FUR volunteers.
