Potter’s Angels Rescue (PAR) is an animal rescue group based out of the New England area that is dedicated to placing unwanted or neglected animals in loving and everlasting homes. With the economy the way it is, we are getting more and more requests for finding homes for animals that are being left behind by their owners due to moving, increased work hours, lack of time for the dog or the inability to afford the dog and it’s vet care. We also assist local animal control officers in placing our local stray population, as well as responding to neglect and cruelty complaints.
Here at PAR, we do require that all animals are spayed/neutered and made current on all their vaccinations before being placed for adoption, which is why we request an adoption fee.
Our main goal is to make sure the animals that we come across make it in to homes where they are well loved and taken care of throughout the rest of their lives. It is a very sad thing to witness the emotions that an animal goes through when they are removed from their family and we would hate to think of them going somewhere that was anything less than a loving home.
PAR’s Mission Statement
Potter’s Angels Rescue is a 501 c.3 non-profit organization consisting of passionate volunteers dedicated to putting an end to the pet overpopulation crisis that plagues the United States. We temporarily provide sanctuary in approved foster homes to abused, neglected, stray, and unwanted animals without discrimination, until we can place them in to carefully screened homes. We also provide these animals with all the medical care that they need prior to placement in everlasting homes, including but not limited to spaying/neutering.
As a group that sees the individuality and potential of each and every dog we believe in their ability to rehabilitate given the proper environment. Due to this philosophy we are often the only or last chance for dogs in our area that are considered “unadoptable” due to behavior and sadly even just their breed. We are a no-kill group that is aspiring to build Potter’s Angels Sanctuary and Rehabilitation Center thus providing a therapeutic residence of peace and tranquility as opposed to the typical “shelter” environment.
We also educate the public on the importance of responsible pet ownership, overpopulation awareness, spaying and neutering, and understanding dog behavior. We strongly advocate against breed discrimination and educate the public on the sad truth behind this mindless practice. Furthermore, we provide information and guidance on selecting the right dog for your home and helping people to find that fit through a rescue to put an end to irresponsible breeding practices. Our facility will also be a place of education where we can enlighten the public on such topics through regular seminars.
Our organization strongly believes that all animals are the angels that walk among us and should be treated with respect and dignity. The ultimate goal of this organization is to have all people share this philosophy, creating a healthier and kinder community for humans and animals alike.
