A Big Thank You to the William Penn Elementary School Students of the Elizabeth Forward School District

The students of the William Penn Elementary School conducted a donation drive for the animals of our rescue. A total of $632 was collected. Wow! A box of collars and other supply donations were collected, too. The students elected to direct $400 of their donation to sponsor senior cat, Bailey, and hound in need, Valentino. The students received a certificate of appreciation and framed photos of their angels. We are so grateful and impressed. God bless!

2014 Pittsburgh Marathon Fundraiser

Here's a little about me, my family, and why I run...

My name is Deana Boggs and I love cats. I really am a "cat lady" and I am not ashamed of it. I live with my family in Oakdale in a beautiful old farmhouse...well, there are actually 2 families that live here..mine with my Fiancee and my children, and the feral cat family that I care for. My feral cats literally came with the house, lol....and we treat them like family....along with our 3 indoor cats who are all rescues: Taffy, a 13 year old tortie was a shelter rescue as well as Ziggy our 6 year old gray and white tuxedo shorthair...and Laya, my 3 year old feral rescue who I have cared for since she was 6 weeks old. ALL of our cats are VERY well cared for and I want to help make sure that other families who care for ferals have the same opportunities that I have been blessed with...abundant food, shelter, and care for all cats..and all animals big and small.

I've been running 5K races for many years, and this year I'm ready to make the BIG jump to the Pittsburgh Half Marathon...but I also want to give back...the greatest satisfaction that I get from running isn't a "good time" or "completing a difficult course"'s helping those in matter if they have hand and feet or paws and fur! My older children are avid runners as well they are learning endurance, patience, and kindness through running...that itself is also a great reward.  (click on this link to donate)

VALENTINO / Fund Raiser

Update on Valentino

  Today Val had his neuter surgery and eight very infected teeth removed. One of his testicles had not dropped from his abdomen, so it was a complicated surgery. Val has been on strong antibiotics for two months for the infection in his mouth, but there was still significant infection there today when the vet removed the teeth. 
  He is in our adoption trailer run and still pretty out of it. There are five more teeth to be removed. The vet proposes that when his neuter stitches are taken out in two weeks, he can have surgery again for these five teeth. This was a big ordeal for Val. Keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you to foster mom, Cindy Coupe, for her incredible work with Val since his arrival here. 

Left out in the cold to die, Valentino an older hound, was found freezing and starved in Greene County on Valentine's Day. He needs two surgeries which will cost $750.00. He must fight an infection and gain weight (he only weights 45 lbs.) before he can have the surgery. Valentino has gained about 7 pounds since we rescued him on February 14, 2014.   He is the need need of extensive dental surgery and also has a complicated neutering surgery.  We are waiting for the results of his blood work before we can proceed with his surgeries. Valentino is going to be fostered by one of our volunteers before and after his medical procedures. Please help us to pay his vet bill. Your contribution is tax deductible. Please send to Angel Ridge Animal Rescue, PO Box 94, Meadowlands, PA 15347 or use can use PAY PAL located on the website @
Thank you and God Bless!
