This Week’s Featured Pet – Joy
Try to imagine the pain and fear you’d feel if you were struck by a car and then dragged along the pavement. Then the driver speeds away leaving you bleeding in the street and not taking ownership of his or her actions. That’s what poor Joy endured back in September...

This Week’s Featured Pet – Hailey
ARE Animal Rescue recently received a call from an area veterinary hospital asking if we could take an orphaned kitten that had been brought in for treatment. We were told her injuries were consistent with being hit by a vehicle and though she didn’t have any broken bones, she couldn’t use her back legs. How could we say “no”?

This Week’s Featured Pets – Melody and Harmony
Sweet sisters Melody and Harmony came to ARE Animal Rescue when three weeks old in December 2021, along with their abandoned mom and two brothers. All were sick with upper respiratory infection and infected eyes. While their mom and brothers recovered in foster care and were adopted, these girls drew the short straw.
