Our Guardian angel program - sponsor a pet!

Adopt a dog or cat in spirit!

Have you fallen in love with a special pet on our website but are unable to bring him or her into your home at this time?

Unfortunately, some of the pets that come into our rescue suffer from injuries or chronic illnesses, while others have been badly abused or neglected. They need specialized medical treatment, behavioral training and extra love and nurturing before they can find  permanent homes. These pets would likely be considered lost causes at other shelters and destroyed as a result.

Riverside Rescue, Inc. allows all our pets the time they need to find a special owner who can care for them, and once they are placed in their forever home, we continue to provide as much support as we can to allow them to live as happily and comfortably as possible. This is why we created our Guardian Angel Program. It allows you to help any particular pet we have here.

How Does It Work?

If you already know which pet you would like to sponsor, simply click the
button below and proceed with your secure online tax-deductible donation.
If you would like to sponsor a pet but don’t know which one, simply
browse the pets and choose one.


After making your sponsorship donation, you will receive acknowledgement
from us and a fact sheet about the pet you are sponsoring. We will
also send a tax receipt for your donation. (You may request them via regular
post mail.)
