When 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.

Let me introduce you about the cat of the week, Omari.

Omari was left behind in an apartment when her people moved out. She was found under a bed by the nice woman who cleaned the apartment. Omari has been spayed and is up-to-date on her vaccinations. A sweet orange cat less than 2 years old, she is very sad because she was treated as disposable goods. If you could make Omari realize that she is valued, call or text Barbara at 701-570-4513 or Ardith at 701-300-3930

Animals are not disposable. Abandonment impacts individual pets. Humans often do not realize that animals, especially domesticated dogs, cats and other small animals, can feel a host of emotions similar to those experienced by people. Fear, pain, abandonment, confusion and longing are all things which pets are capable of experiencing. Please don't abandon your pets.

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.

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.
