Extra Care for Long-term Residents

At ROAR most of our residents come through our doors and, a after a short period of loving care here at the shelter, leave for their new homes. But, sometimes, even a sweet, beautiful animal gets passed by due to no fault of his/her own. The timing just isn’t right and the perfect match takes a little longer to be made. Because of their lengthier stay with us, these animals receive a little extra care. Some are given foster homes where they are exposed to real life family noises and smells as well as others animals and a real home life. Others receive extensive training in behavior classes and by ROAR’s trainers. The animals flourish in these situations instead of becoming more and more despondent while waiting for a home. Bailey, Simba & Ham are some of our favorite examples.



Sookie is such a sweet and loving cat! Although we do not know her story, it’s very clear that she lived in a home at some point in her life.

This beautiful girl is two-years old and will make a wonderful pet to the lucky family who adopts her.
Sookie is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on her vaccinations.

***Please remember to keep your cats indoors, especially during this time of year, as predators are active preparing for the harsh weather ahead.***




Doug is still available and is eagerly waiting to find his forever home! He is a very sweet and loving boy who is an all-around amazing dog. A two-year old, Black Lab mix, Doug LOVES people and other dogs.

When Doug came to ROAR, we noticed that he was limping. After further examination, we discovered that this poor boy needed ACL surgery on both of his hind legs. Doug already had one ACL repaired with great results. His second ACL will be repaired shortly.

Our friends at Wags and Menace Make a Difference Program Foundation made a generous donation that helped make all of this happen for Doug. We are so thankful and grateful!

Doug is up-to-date on vaccinations, is micro-chipped and is neutered.

At ROAR, everyone receives what they need to live happy, healthy lives
until the home they are waiting for is found.
