May – A Wish For Animals

A Wish For Animals is a 501(c)3 non-profit founded to find permanent homes for homeless dogs, cats, and any other at-risk, domestic animals.

They cover all veterinary, boarding, supply, and transport costs for AWFA animals.

Their mission is to help save as many animals as possible from suffering or death and find them wonderful homes to spend the rest of their lives.

It’s beyond amazing to see where these animals came from and where they end up in their new homes with so much love. They are so grateful to have what so many of us take for granted every day!

A Wish for Animals has been rescuing animals for the past 20 years and is solely staffed by volunteers, with the majority working full-time jobs.
