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 11 – 17, we will be featuring animals from the following rescues on our Facebook page:
Gray Faces Acres, VA
Gray Face Acres Senior Dog Rescue is an all volunteer 501c3 organization that is dedicated to rescuing senior dogs from shelters and situations of abuse and neglect . We are also dedicated to helping people keep and care for their canine companions through the A Hand Up program. We currently have a foster network in the DC/MD/VA/WV as well as GFA West in Idaho Falls.
Gray Face Acres was established in 2016 by Debbie and Bob Gretz. After many years in rescue, Debbie realized there was a real need for a safe space for seniors so she started a rescue geared toward older dogs. We are now a foster based rescue in MD, DC, VA and WV. Gray Face Acres is completely volunteer run and donation driven. If there are senior dogs in need, whether in a shelter or a home, we want to support dog’s needs.
Sometimes that means rescuing the dog and getting it medically treated and into a loving furever home. Other times it means offering food and supplies to help keep a pet in their current home. Saving dogs is our mission and giving each dog the loving life they deserve is our goal. Gray Face Acres has saved over 400 dogs and we strive, everyday , to save more!
Darby’s Pals Rescue, TX
Darby’s Pals Rescue began quite informally in 1994 in the southeast Dallas area as simply a good-hearted gesture to take in a little Yorkie-Pomeranian mix dog who’d been terribly abused by both an owner and a groomer……..the dog’s name was DARBY……and thus began this great adventure! Our blessed sanctuary is now home to approximately 60 dogs and 25 cats (including the ferals), and our no-kill policy is of utmost importance. As much as we wish to find loving and permanent homes for all our animal friends, we especially cherish the hearts & lives of our “kids” who have been challenged with issues of physical impairment, neglect, abuse, abandonment, and aging. Our ultimate goal is to provide the best care possible for every single “Darby’s pal”—whether we end up matching it with that “perfect new family”, or just need to keep it safe here…..we strongly believe in doing whatever it takes to honor and cherish these precious lives of God’s creatures.
We are incorporated in Kaufman County with the state of Texas, and are a 501(c)3 IRS-recognized charitable organization. Though we are indeed a non-profit entity, we still fund this organization largely out-of-pocket….and humbly welcome any monetary or gift card donations offered—which of course with your receipt, are tax-deductible. Additionally, our supporters can also contribute directly to our account at Kaufman Veterinary Center in Kaufman, TX at 1700 East Mulberry Street, 75142, phone number 972-932-3278 (c/o Darby’s Pals Rescue)
Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue, VA
Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue (SSR) was founded in 2017 and is a 501c3, all-volunteer rescue focused primarily on the rescue of German Shepherd Dogs. We are based out of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, but expand our reach and work to save German Shepherd Dogs in heavily populated areas throughout the country. Many of our members have been saving dogs all over the world for years. Our hope is to help rescue, rehabilitate and re-home every German Shepherd in need. After years of dedicating our lives to other rescues, we decided to venture into our own rescue to expand our reach to places like Texas with a high population of homeless dogs and bring them to the east coast where they are more adoptable. We have a strong passion to help the breed, but would like to extend a helping hand to other dogs in need when we have the abilities. We are very passionate in our belief that every dog deserves a chance at life in a good home, no matter where they come from.

Moe Moe’s Rescue of the Rockies was founded by Heather Heren on March 1, 2016 in honor of her beloved bulldog, Molly. Molly (lovingly referred to as Moe-Moe) had a whole host of health issues, likely from being used for breeding. To Heather, she was perfect. Heather took great care of her until she passed, and then decided to continue to rescue dogs in her memory.
“Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot. All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.” ~ Jamie Anderson

Popcorn Park / AHS, NJ
The mission of the Associated Humane Societies, Inc., including Popcorn Park Zoo, is to consistently provide the highest quality of care to all animals, domestic and wildlife, including their rescue, housing, veterinary care, placement whenever possible, and when required, a peaceful end. It is also our mission to prevent cruelty to all animals, primarily in New Jersey, but also throughout the United States. This shall be done through direct intervention as well as the promotion of humane education regarding the proper care and treatment of animals at both public and private levels, thereby advancing the humane treatment of animals everywhere.
The Associated Humane Societies features cats, dogs, kittens and puppies for adoption at our three shelters located in Newark, Forked River, and Tinton Falls. Small animals such as guinea pigs, hamsters, and rabbits may occasionally be available for adoption as well. The Society takes in approximately 15,000 animals annually, and although that figure includes wildlife, the larger proportion is cats and dogs who wait for their `forever home’.
Purrfect Haven Cat Rescue, DE
Purrfect Haven Cat Rescue is a private not-for-profit no-kill charitable organization created in 2005 to improve cat welfare through education, adoption, medical and social rehabilitation, and spay and neuter. We are devoted to rehabilitating and placing abandoned and homeless cats and kittens through our network of foster homes and public adoptions.
We specialize in rescuing the animals that other organizations are unable to help. Many of our cats come to us with medical and behavioral problems that while treatable, would over-burden the capabilities of large, high-volume shelters. These animals need the individual attention offered to all of our residents through our foster home network and working relationship with local veterinary hospitals. All Purrfect Haven cats undergo extremely thorough medical evaluations and testing before being placed for adoption. Our team works hard to ensure our cats are as healthy as possible before placing them up for public adoption.
ADOPTING A PET FROM PURRFECT HAVEN ALLOWS US TO SAVE ANOTHER ANIMAL THAT WOULD OTHERWISE HAVE NO CHANCE.
All of our cats have been fostered in private homes and will never go up for adoption straight off the street. We know their personalities and preferences, likes and dislikes, and any special needs they may have. This information helps us to ensure that each cat is matched with the perfect family during the adoption process.
Pigsburgh Squealers Rescue, PA
Pigsburgh Squealers Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit pig rescue near Pittsburgh PA. Our mission is to provide a safe environment for pet pigs that are rescued from situations of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. PSR strives to educate the public about pigs as pets, advocating that compassion for animals is a basic moral necessity.
We attend events throughout the region to show Pittsburghers how wonderful pigs really are. We are mini pig hoof and tusk farriers, attend birthday parties and animal events, and regularly host open houses at our property in Tarentum.
Pigsburgh Squealers Rescue’s long term goals:
- Promote mini pigs as the third recognized domesticated animal and pet by providing education and resources to the general public.
- Provide a safe home for rescued mini pigs, a place for rehabilitation of pigs; and a welcoming environment for the community to become better acquainted with animals associated with food.
- Educate the community about mini pigs as creatures and pets.
- Educate the community about farm animals through volunteer programs, organization visits to our farm (schools, etc.), and allow community to work directly with the animals to learn more about them.
- Educate the community about sustainable food options; farm animals are more than dinner, and educational programs are paramount in creating change within the food industry.
- Create outreach program for children with disabilities.
- Lobby for certain townships and boroughs to amend zoning restrictions on mini pigs where pigs are considered livestock and not allowed. Homeowners may amend individual zoning on their home, but process is difficult and doesn’t yield results.
