Welcome to Adopt an ANGEL

Adopt an ANGEL is a 501c3 charitable organization based in New Hanover County, North Carolina. We were founded in January of 2004 and our mission is to reduce the numbers of animals euthanized in our area shelters through aggressive adoption and spay/neuter programs.  

We welcome you to participate in the annual Pets 2 the Rescue event. 

During this time of economic stress, shelter donations are down and shelter fundraisers have been cancelled, but the needs of homeless dogs and cats in our care are as great as ever.  Pets 2 the Rescue is a 1-mile and 5K virtual run/walk event to raise funds for Adopt an Angel and other non-profit animal shelters and pet adoption agencies across the US. 


Dogs wants to walk or run to help less fortunate shelter animals.  Cats want to help, too.  Pets 2 the Rescue is their opportunity!

Between now and the end of May for just $10 and 100% of your registration fee goes to Adopt an Angel.  You can make an even greater impact by making an additional donation as you register.   

 How does it work?  3 easy steps: 

  1. Register for the virtual 1 mile or virtual 5K any time between May 1 - May 31.  During registration you will be asked to choose your participating Shelter and team.  Be sure to select Adopt an Angel and 100% of your $10 registration fee will come to us.  That’s right, 100%. (You can also choose to make an additional donation as your register.)
  2. Walk or Run your distance (with your pet if you would like) by June 1.  Note:  Local Stay at Home orders allow us to run outdoors (observing Social Distancing guidelines).
  3. Submit your Time online either using the free “IYR Virtual” mobile app or manually in the online race results.  CLICK HERE for instructions on how to use the IYR Virtual app and enter your time.

Bonus:  Runners who submit their time by June 1 will be entered into a drawing for “door prizes”.

 We partner with 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 care they need, and then we find them loving homes. Since 2004, over 11,000 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 during our weekend adoption fairs. We are at Petco on S. College Rd in Wilmington, NC every Sat and Sun from 11-5.  You may also visit with a sample of our cats at Petco, Pet Supermarket in Wilmington or at PetSense in both Wilmington and Shallotte. Our cats and kittens are in these stores 7 days a week.

Adopt an ANGEL has been a part of the Wilmington Fur Ball since 2007. The 2021 Wilmington Fur Ball is fast approaching so we encourage you to get tickets soon. It usually sells out.  

To further reduce local pet overpopulation Adopt An ANGEL created  Fix A Friend Spay Neuter Clinic. This clinic is part of the National Spay Neuter Response Team and has performed over 50,000 surgeries since opening in 2013.
