I had a great experience with Anna's Angels Dog Rescue. The volunteers took the time to help us find the perfect dog for our family. My daughter was fearful of many dogs, taking that into consideration they we're able to help find OUR dog, not just A dog for us to adopt. Everything was processed in a timely and professional way. They were always prompt when answering any questions we had, and the communication was far better than I expected for transport to Canada. The exchange was well coordinated, and an indescribably wonderful experience. He was clean, and well looked after. Very impressed with the transport company they use as well. Updates and photos on their trip meant a lot too to have that reassurance that the dogs we're all safe. Our dog was exactly as his foster predicted he would be, now that he's warming up and finding his place in our family (and hearts) we couldn't be more pleased with Anna's Angels for everything they do. He was meant to be with us. He's also a much better behaved dog than I envisioned. I'm not sure if we're just extremely lucky, or he's just grateful to be in his forever home. 6/5 stars.

Great group of ladies! Applied to a few rescue groups and didn't get a reply. I got a phone call to say I had been approved a week after I applied. The next day I had adopted the sweetest puppy. The hardest part is waiting for them to arrive, but you know that your dog is being very well taken care of and not in a shelter. The dogs are in foster homes. We were well informed every step of the way and someone was always available to answer questions. I would also like to commend the amazing ladies that drove 3700kms to bring our dogs to us. Amazing ladies! Highly recommend.

Even before we have our dogs in our possession, I can’t stress the overwhelming work and time the staff has put into getting us our dogs. This includes the great fosters, the drivers, staff and all other volunteers that put in effort to saving the animals lives and transporting them to us. I have met many great people just in messages and pics and would highly recommend this rescue for your animal needs. I can’t put enough stars, 5 is not enough....Jason Currie. N.S

We live in an area where animals are treated like disposable inanimate objects. So many left, thrown out like trash, abandoned, neglected, and abused. This group of rescuers work tirelessly to save as many lives possible and ensure their happy future. They put every ounce of energy and most of their time into helping the forgotten animals of southeast texas. They are heroes and saviors to anything with 4 legs. Im proud to say I have had the opportunity to foster for them and watch them in action. I have learned so much and have seen countless animals saved.

We had such a great experience with Anna’s Angels. They were so helpful when we were looking for our pup and also after we found our new family member. Getting our girl delivered to us in Canada was so easy because the dedicated team at Anna’s Angels helped us each step of the way. I highly recommend this team is you are looking to give a pup his / her fur-ever home!

This is our girl, Kali (formerly Elsa) when we first brought her home and today! She is such a sweetheart!

I adopted a beautiful 80lbs dog from Anna’s Angels in September 2019. He is an absolute joy. His name, Lucky, is so fitting because I am extremely lucky to have him in my life. I‘be always been timid around dogs as I got bit a few times as a child. I have never, not even once, been fearful of my pup. Anna’s Angels provides me with all the information I needed to properly care for and prepare for my pooch. I would highly recommend this non profit. It brought my baby and I together, imagine what they can do for you!

Anna’s Angels brought us together with our sweet Chief in February of 2019. The adoption process was easy and quick, unlike other rescues that often take months to even acknowledge your application. Anna’s is well organized and keeps everyone in communication during transport of the pets to be adopted.

After having our Chief for some time, we were struggling with some behavioural issues, and Anna’s was nothing but supportive and helpful.

I was looking to adopt a dog for at least 4 months. I would check every resource possible at least 3 times a day, every day. I tried to find a dog with my local spca but no luck. Four times I found a dog I liked, called, and the dog had just been adopted. So I prayed to God in August to send me the right fit dog. In October, I discovered Anna's Angels Dog Rescue on Facebook. Living in Canada, and them being in Texas, I wasn't sure if it would be possible. I would look every day. Then one night, I found my future best friend, Andy (now known as Furley). I messaged the group and heard back very quickly. I found out all the proper information about him and what to expect. It was so easy and an even easier decision to adopt him.

Furley has been with me for 7 months and has completely enhanced my life making it happier with more smiles, laughter, and fun every day. My family absolutely loves him!! He's also amazing around my dad who is 79 and great with my 2 cats. It was definitely one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life!

The ladies at Anna's Angels Dog Rescue definitely made it easier and better to adopt from a far away place from me. They not only sent pictures and videos, but provided me with all the details about my dogs travel plans, cost, health, and actions... As my dog loves to smile and play!

I really appreciated how honest they were answering my questions and how we had real time feed about where my dog was as he travelled to meet me at the border with his furry friends. I have and always will recommend Anna's Angels Dog Rescue to people looking to adopt a beautiful rescue dog!!

I am from Prince Edward Island, Canada and we don't have an abundance of dogs to rescue. It's actually quite a great problem to have!
The few dogs that do come up for adoption are dogs that are not suitable to live with cats or kids and I have both.
My youngest son had a great phobia of dogs and would begin a screaming fit everytime one came around. I worked with him considerably but I would need a gentle dog for him.
My cat was 15 years old at the time and would not be used to having another animal in the house especially one chasing him so I really needed a dog who would ignore him.
So I started looking online and found Anna's Angels.
I was watching posts for adobtables come up and I asked many questions on different dogs which were answered quickly and expertly.
One day this scruffy happy dog with a beard came up.
She was good with kids and indifferent to cats, was house trained and walked well on leash.
My husband put in the adoption application and after we were accepted we had to wait a couple of weeks to pick her up in New Brunswick.
I had many questions before picking her up and after. Her fosters answered everyone of them with wisdom and grace and because of their knowledge the transition was very smooth.

We have had Fancy for a year on May 26th and she fit in so well with our family (3 boys and a cat) that it feels like she was always with us.
She loves her hiking partner (me), her boys and has a little extra love for her dad. Fancy loves love.
Her favourite is going to the dog park which is located in our back yard to play with her friends. (She lets me know when they are there)
Second favourite is her love of the beach and as soon as she can smell that salty air she gets excited.
Her dream is to someday catch the crow who torments her everyday.
Fancy turned out to be everything her fosters told me she was and more. The organization was upfront and truthful on every account and I recommend Anna's Angels everytime someone mentions adopting a dog.
The process was fairly easy enough and anytime we had a question (like the U.S. / Canada money exchange, the organization helped us through it.
It is evident that Anna's Angels take the time to make sure their dogs are going to loving families and that everyone is a good match.

When I was little my mom used to read me a book about stork who dropped off babies to women with no children. I used to imagine how excited those women would be.
When I was waiting at the border in New Brunswick, I felt like one of those mothers.
Anna's Angels blessed me with my first daughter.

I work as a Ranger here locally for TPWD. Anna's Angels have worked with me on strays that come in our park. She adopts them for me while I foster them for a short period. Gets them good homes with follow up pics. Some sad detatchment moments as I say my goodbyes knowing they'll go to a good owner. Thanks Anna's Angels.

In April of last year me and my boyfriend just got settled into our new house and knew it was time to add an addition to the family, while searching all over Facebook I never imagined I would be adopting my puppy in a whole other country but when he showed up in a pet group I was in, last if his siblings to be adopted, it was meant to be. We put in an application and they were so amazing throughout the whole thing. Everything was so quick and smooth and 2 weeks later we had our amazing and healthy 4 month old Puppy Rocky ❤️

I adopted my Yorkie from Anna‘s Angel’s in May 2018. I was very sceptical adopting an unseen animal from so far away. I am in Nova Scotia Canada. I remember asking what if I receive a Great Dane instead of a Yorkshire Terrior. The lady (Cameron) thought this was the funniest thing she ever heard and assured me I would get the dog in the picture. I took the chance and I am so glad that I did it. Anna Angles were respectful, honest, professional and my experience with them was second to none. I remember the day the rescue vehicle arrived and we were all waiting for our pups. Tears of joy were everywhere (both for the people waiting for the pups arriving and the dogs themselves). I have since referred two friends who have successfully received loving dogs. I cannot say enough about this Awesome not for profit

The time, patience and endless hours they put into saving the dogs that others have given up on. These dogs go to wondergul fosters. When they come to their fur-ever homes...they are so kind, loving. We adopted our first pup over a year ago and because of this wonderful group of people....we have adopted another. I highly recommend Anna's Angels.

My family and I connected with Anna’s Angels as my best friend got her baby from Anna last summer. Days before we were supposed to get our male puppy, COVID hit. Fast forward almost 3 months and in 4 sleeps, we will finally be getting our baby boy and an additional female as well. Every step of the way, the foster parents have been in contact with us and sending us weekly pictures. I have been in contact with Anna directly and she’s always so honest and forthcoming. I will only use Anna’s Angels from here on in and will always recommend them to other.

Originally, my husband and I had applied to adopt a puppy, which had been adopted. But Anna was on the ball with helping us choose the right puppy for us. We cant imagine our lives without him. The process was head ache free. Any question we had was answered fast. The volunteers were amazing. The transport company Annas Angel's uses was amazing. Always kept us updated. Our puppy is happy, healthy and above all, loved in our home. We will definitely be looking at adopting a second Anna's angel within the next few months.

Anna's angel helped save our boy, Polo, from the streets and gave us the chance to give him a fresh start all the way in New Brunswick, Canada. They fostered him until they were able to transport him to Canada and he has had the best life since. We cannot thank Anna's team enough for all they do for their animals.

Anna and Cameron are AMAZING. Both have answered any questions/concerns I have no matter the time of day or how ridiculous the question is. Anna’s is an amazing organization that helps these dogs for no profit, but rather just the love and kindness of the volunteers, vets, fosters, transporters, etc. hearts

We have two loving amazing dogs through Anna's Angels! I couldn't have asked for better dogs or for a better experience with a rescue. They were with us every single step of the way no matter how annoying I might have been in my own excitement. I was put in touch directly with who was fostering the doggies before they came up to Canada to stay with us and all of my questions were always answered. You'll never find a kinder group of people who are more passionate about the dogs they save than the volunteers with Anna's.

They've inspired us to do everything that we can up here to help out.

They really make a huge difference!!

We got our dog Mia (was Tammy) from Anna's Angels and we couldn't be happier! They were very helpful in helping us choose the right dog for our family. Anna and her volunteers kept us updated throughout the process and always answered any questions we had and sent lots of pictures to us before we got her. They are all so friendly and work hard helping these pups get adopted and take such good care of them. Mia was very healthy when she arrived. I would definitely adopt through them again!
