Angel’s Retreat is here to help dogs who need additional support and care prior to being adopted, and to provide a home to those in need of fospice care.
We partner with established shelters who can benefit from an outside source that can house their animals for a given period of time, providing a relaxed and quiet environment for training and care that is not possible in larger/urban spaces.
Why We Do This
The shelter environment is stressful and confusing for animals. Under these circumstances animals will not display their best behaviors and behavioral issues will become exacerbated.
In a study of behaviorally challenged dogs, 90% of those dogs who went into foster for 30 days or less had a 90% live outcome compared to 44% live outcomes in the average shelter.
