I am a huge advocate for adopting animals from local rescues. One local rescue that you should know about is Angel's Wish TNR of Watford City. The non-profit organization helps the high number of lost and abandoned cats in Watford City.

Angel's Wish currently has multiple cats that they are trying to place in forever homes.

Tractor Supply of Watford City is a collection spot for supply donations. If you are shopping and pick up some cat supplies be sure to tell the clerk that you want to donate to Angel's Wish.

Another excellent way to get involved is by volunteering. Come and hang out with the cats. Just an hour out of your day would mean so much! It gets them out of their cages and helps with socialization and trust.

Fostering is also very important and needed. When you foster, you agree to take a cat into your home and give him or her love, care and attention for a predetermined time or until the cat is adopted.

Anyone can be an cat foster. It is a very rewarding experience. By taking in an animal in need temporarily into your home you're helping Angel's Wish, by freeing up space and helping them learn about the cat's personality.

When you foster, you're giving your foster cat the time he or she needs to be ready for adoption and you're helping to socialize kitty by getting them used to being around other pets and different types of people. Helping them gain trust.

Besides adopting, volunteering, fostering and donating, the best way you can support Angel's Wish is by spaying and neutering your pets in order to help control the pet population. Spaying and neutering saves lives.

Over a 7 year period, 1 female cat + 1 male cat + their offspring can produce 420,000 cats.

Over a 6 year period, 1 female dog + 1 male dog + their offspring can produce 67,000 dogs. Please...Be part of the solution. Spay and Neuter.

If would like to adopt or foster a cat, call or text Barbara Phillips at 701-570-4513.

The best part about adopting is when you adopt one cat, you are actually saving two because Angel's Wish is able to take another into their care. There is always something happening and as a non-profit organization they rely on community support. They are so appreciative of volunteers and donations.

They operate on donations only. Angel's Wish TNR has been run by Barbara Phillips and Ardith Favorite since 2019. Two people in the community who saw a need and they did something about it. Ardith recently had to step away from rescue, so Barb could really use some help from the community. Please get involved!

If you see an animal in need, be the one to help. We are all capable of rescue.
