SAVING LIVES ONE COMPANION ANIMAL AT A TIME

aka Angel's Rest Animal Sanctuary   |   Amelia, OH   |  www.angels-rest.org

Mission

Angel’s Rest Animal Society (ARAS) was established as a one-of-a-kind, non-for-profit pet hospice and retirement home for animals that are first in line for euthanasia due to advanced age, illness, wounds, chronic conditions or basic neglect and animals with severe bite or behavioral histories. At Angel’s Rest we rehabilitate, foster and seek adoption for our residents and also serve as a loving hospice for those nearing their final days. Angel’s Rest was established as a vehicle to connect humans and animals and bring comfort and brightness to their lives. Through ELDER PAWS™, we enhance quality of life for the most neglected and disenfranchised segments of society: Seniors, Veterans, Disabled and Previously-Homeless Individuals and Families.

Animal Hospice Program

This Hospice program is our primary and largest program. Our goal has been, and is, to take animals out of situations where they are facing imminent danger and provide them with a comfortable place to spend the remainder of their lives, no matter how long that may be. We take in abused, neglected, sick, old or otherwise unwanted animals and strive to provide every animal that enters our doors with the care they need and deserve to ensure that they live out the rest of their lives in peace, comfort, well fed and loved.

The Elder Paws program is designed to significantly enhance the quality of life, and match up the needs of, two forgotten segments of our society: older animals and elderly/homebound citizens. Angel’s Rest will pull older, less adoptable, cats from kill shelters and match them with elderly/disabled citizens who are homebound, are in need of companionship and cannot afford a pet of their own. The homebound person will provide a loving home for an older animal, while Angel’s Rest assumes all costs for the pet. Volunteers will make weekly visits to the “foster” homes to check on the pet, perform routine grooming, weigh and take temperature, bring supplies and provide the elderly caretaker with much needed interaction. Angel’s Rest volunteers will also be on call to address any medical issues and trips to the vet. We feel that Elder Paws will provide a solution to our current space limitations and will enable us to save more cats from euthanasia. Elder Paws is an alternative way of saving animals (cats only during its initial phase) at a larger scale without the benefit of a large facility in which to house more animals.
There is a whole demographic of homebound elderly, disabled, or handicapped individuals who would love to have a pet; however, they just cannot afford one and, logistically, it would be very hard for them to own one.
From an animal-welfare agency's, and even an animal’s, perspective there could be no better home for an elderly animal than the constant presence of its human who is always willing and ready to lend a lap on which to lay. The owner’s inability to readily leave the house is a blessing for the animal who is fortunate enough to have an owner whose undivided attention is focused on it.
Loneliness is an emotion many elderly people face. Love is the most important health attribute we have and pets are one of nature's best sources of love.
Animals of all types, especially dogs and cats, help not only the elderly overcome the pain of loneliness, but pets show companionship and affection. For anyone who is consistently left alone, pets can also supply a sense of security and protection. Pets can make one laugh and divert the mind away from troubles. Several studies have shown that pets can aid in relaxation, lower one's blood pressure, promote health, and extend one's life. Pets help us unwind. Pets supply a nurturing quality by way of affectionate, non-judgmental, attention. They relieve stress and anxiety and anyone who bonds with a pet will confirm the value of a pet.
