If you listen to the Big Butt Morning Show you know that I am a huge advocate for adopting animals from local rescues. One local rescue that I mention on Whisker Wednesday is Angel's Wish TNR of Watford City. The non profit organization helps the high number of lost and abandoned cats and is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals and to the promotion of their adoption program.

I'd like to tell you about the cat of the week, a perfect gentleman named Ricki. He originally came to Angel's Wish over a year ago with an upper respiratory infection. He was adopted last year but came back after an eviction...not his fault. Ricki is uner two years old, and he is neutered and vaccinated. He sneezes sometimes and the veterinarian thinks it's because he has a short squished nose. (Not an infection) Ricki is oh so sweet, he absolutely loves to cuddle, play with toys and climb. He gets along with dogs and cats.

If you are interested in adopting please call Barbara at 701-570-4513 or Ardith at 701-300-3930 to set up a visit. Help us find Ricki's people!

The best part 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.

Angel's Wish currently has 9 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. Besides adopting, volunteering and donating, the best way you can support them is by spaying and neutering your pets in order to help control the pet population.
