Programs: Therapy Dog Program

Mission:
R.O.A.R. is a community funded and supported shelter for dogs and cats. It was established in 2000 and receives no local, state or federal aid. We are a small private shelter that accepts surrendered animals as well as abandoned and neglected dogs and cats in our community and the US. In addition, we accept dogs rescued from high-kill shelters in other parts of the United States. We also recognize the need and importance of bringing eduation about animal welfare into our community. Our Therapy Dog program services the area school as well as local nursing homes and hospices. Our newly expanded shelter will allow us to provide training programs for our volunteers, staff and the community.
Results:
We have two fundraisers per year to benefit the shelter.

ROAR with Laughter is our annual gala in February.

Paws for the Cause is our annual dog walk for homeless dogs and cats in October.

We are hoping to add more smaller scale fundraisers through out the year.

The staff was caring, while also being clear about how important the home visit would be to the dogs initial meeting. ... more »

It's a great shelter. The animals are very well cared for and they've saved countless from the south. I adopted a dog from there. He was a puppy when I got him and had gone to another family and then was returned. The dog is now in training to be my service dog and is coming along very well. I ... more »
