Before we were officially APA, both of our founders were heavily involved in volunteering and working within the foster systems to help find animals safe and loving homes. In late July of 2019 we had a very special case of a pregnant Angel named Luna. Luna was picked up by animal control & was in desperate need of an immediate foster home to help have her babies in a safe and loving environment. Our founders were able to step up to help take care of Luna and get her 20 puppies delivered – almost setting a world record, but she needed very special care and attention due to the size of her litter. We often wonder what would have happened if we weren’t able to take care of her with the help of another local rescue and an after hours veterinary team who were able to deliver these puppies after her labor stalled. Luckily, 18 of her puppies survived and we had a positive outcome from the network we had built & help we were all able to collectively offer. After our encounter with Luna we knew there was a demand for more access care and help needed for animals like Luna. Shortly after, Angel Paws Advocates was officially born & registered as a 501(c)(3), to date we have been able to rescue over 2000 animals in our few short years of working on this passion project.
