The human/animal bond is as old as human history.    

We cherish our pets for the unconditional love and acceptance they give us.  


ROAR exists to strengthen that bond and rescue the pets left destitute when the bond of that trust is broken.

Donate today and support our mission during our Annual Appeal!

We rely on the support of individuals and businesses to fulfill our mission of making sure every animal in our program receives the quality care needed and to match them into loving forever homes. 

Your tax-deductible gift means so much. Not only to us, but also to the many animal shelters and rescues we work with and help each year.  By taking dogs and cats from overcrowded shelters we are decreasing the number of animals euthanized due to lack of space.

Your donation helps to cover transport fees and costs, vaccinations and medical procedures, spay and neuter, micro-chipping, behavioral training and care and a whole lot more.  The dogs and cats at ROAR receive the best quality care and training during their stay with us.  The cost for this type of care increases year after year but, is an integral part of our mission and as the word of our mission spreads more and more animal welfare agencies are contacting us to take their animals into our programs.  

Your donation means we can save more animals!

An easy way to double your impact! Does your employer match your gift?  Most corporations will offer a matching gift option for their employees.
