Adopt an ANGEL is a 501c3 charitable organization based in New Hanover County, North Carolina. We were founded in January of 2004 by compassionate volunteers who wanted to increase adoptions at New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender County Animal Controls.
We partner with these area shelters, to concentrate on the cats and dogs that have run out of time or have special needs. We move them to a safe haven with private citizens, strive to provide them with any veterinary or behavioral care they need, and then we find them loving homes. Since 2004, over 7000 of these previously unwanted animals found their forever homes through our safety net. When one of ours gets adopted, we go and get another. It's as simple as that! All active volunteers receive no monetary compensation for their work. They graciously donate their time, talents and finances to this worthwhile cause. Download Our Brochure.
Adopt an ANGEL has no real shelter. It is a foster home network. Please visit us and our homeless animals at Petco every Sat and Sun from 11-5 during our adoption fairs. You may also visit with a sample of our cats at Petco, Pet Supermarket in Wilmington or at PetSense in Shallotte. Our cats and kittens are in these stores 7 days a week.
