Hands 2 Paws needs kiddie pools for our dogs. They are hard to find this time of year. If you have any you would like to donate, you can drop them off at Graced Kennels or contact us on our form to make arrangements for us to pick them up. Many thanks!
Covid 19 Message
Hands to Paws is pleased to announce that we received a Rachael Ray Save Them All COVID-19 Relief Grant in May 2020 from Best Friends Animal Society. This grant came at a time when our rescue (like others) was suffering due to shutdown and cancellation of fundraising and adoption events. These funds helped us to continue our mission of saving the lives of neglected, abused and abandoned animals.
CANINE OF THE MONTH
If you’ve been looking for the companionship of a wonderful dog that will light up your life then Angel’s your girl! This adorable lab mix was rescued from a dumpster in rural Georgia by a good Samaritan two and a half years ago and has been in boarding in Aiken, South Carolina ever since! Those that know and love her are surprised and disheartened that this joyful, social, sweet soul with a sparkle in her eyes has not found her new family yet but everyone’s hoping that this will finally be her time!
Kelli Hofstetter, the Owner of Winding Lane Kennels, knows Angel better than anyone and says that she is super affectionate, goofy, loves people and kids, is calm and quiet in her kennel and doesn’t chew. She just loves everyone that she meets and they love her.
Angel had eight weeks of basic obedience training by Certified Dog Trainer Ryan Chambers, who has said that Angel is a smart, outgoing, happy dog that would make a great pet. (Ryan is willing to help Angel get adjusted to her new home). Angel can be
selective when it comes to other dogs so she would do best as the only pet in the household. She’ll thrive from her new family’s undivided attention! She walks well on a leash and would love a fenced yard, although she would also love to be an inside dog and a big part of her new family’s life. Angel loves human interaction and is pure joy to be around!
Angel has had a handful of amazing heroes in her life that have stepped up in a huge way and changed her life. Ms. Jimmie Jenkins, animal advocate, has been in her corner all the way, with total devotion, paying for her boarding and food from afar and from day one. Kathy Ellis with Hands to Paws sponsors her vetting and takes her to vet appointments, and Kelli Hofstetter, who has taken Angel under her wing and has helped her to really blossom and come into her own. These ladies want nothing more than for Angel to finally find a family of her own! She’s been waiting patiently for almost three years – please let this be her time!
