Reminder, as you shop for the holidays, you earn more votes, so you can keep voting for AAR multiple times during the campaign!

Every vote counts to help us receive a portion of the available Target funds as we continue our mission towards ending pet overpopulation that results in the euthanasia of unwanted cats and dogs. We do this by providing a rescue and adoption center, by emphasizing the importance of spaying and neutering and educating on humane animal ownership.

Now through December 31, vote for Abandoned Animal Rescue through the Target Circle program to help determine how Target’s donation will be divvied up.

Thank you for your support, and we encourage you to share your support for us (and your thanks to Target) on social media throughout the duration of the voting!

November is National Adopt A Senior Pet Month –
a month dedicated to helping older pets find loving forever homes.
Meet Harley – Gentle, easy-going, and friendly describes 11 year old, Harley (who has been with us for 143 days). Harley is as sweet as they come. She is a favorite to so many of our volunteers. We would love for Harley to find a loving home with a comfy bed, to be taken on leisurely walks, to be doted on and to spend her senior years living the best life possible. Will you open your heart and your home to Harley?
There are plenty of benefits to selecting an older pet over a younger one. Because senior pets are typically calmer and less energetic than puppies and kittens, it’s easier to teach them new tricks. In fact, many senior pets are already pros at performing basic commands.
Their low-key natures can also make them ideal for households with children, so long as kids know how to gently interact with older animals.
Many people find themselves unprepared for the energy and needs of a young pet. But a sweet senior moves at a much more manageable pace. They’re less demanding and usually fit in well in many kinds of households, including apartments.

Meet the dashing Chandler! He is a sweet and gentle boy, who needs a little patience and love to come out of his shell. He really does enjoy being around people and being loved on, gentle pets are his favorites. He needs time to open up to people and is quite shy at first, but for the right person he would be a loving companion.  Chandler had a hard time with the dogs in his previous home, and isn’t sure he’d like to be in a home with dogs again. But with a correct introduction and patience, he could possibly learn to live with a cat friendly dog. Male adult cat – Mixed breed tabby and white –  Age 3 years
