Mission Statement

R.A.I.N. is dedicated to rescuing cats and dogs from local animal shelters, individuals who no longer want or cannot care for their pets, and animals who live their lives as strays.

Our mission is to help the animals that we can, knowing that every single one that we save makes a difference. Volunteers work to care for, socialize, protect, medicate, and above all, love these deserving animals. We are always in desperate need of foster homes for cats and dogs. The more temporary housing we can provide, the more lives we can save.

If you would like more information on becoming a foster parent please contact us.

Our only sources of financial support are adoption fees and your donations.

The average cost of caring for a foster animal until it is adopted is $78.39. Our adoption fees are $95 per cat and $150 for dogs in most cases. This leaves little for the ‘special cases’ that require more extensive medical attention. Any shortfall is paid from volunteers’ pockets and they are not deep.

If you would like to support us with your time, monetary contributions, or supplies, please visit the following links for more info:  Donation Page | Volunteer Page.   If you’d like to speak to us in person, you can do so at any of our adoption events!  

Special Note:   Part of our group’s efforts involve rescuing feral and other stray cats that are not used to human companionship. They have only known life on the streets and unkind treatment. We always have a need for farms or homes in rural areas where these animals can be safely placed following their spay/neuter – if they are not adoptable for indoor-only homes.

If you can help us place these cats please contact us.
