VALHALLA RESCUE’S MISSION IS TO: • Rescue neglected, abused, abandoned and otherwise needy animals in our region and beyond. • Provide family style foster environments, training and medical care for animals in our program while awaiting adoption in forever homes. • Reduce animal neglect and cruelty and also improve public safety by providing education materials and programs on all aspects of animal care, training and overall basic canine behavior. • Establish and maintain community support programs that reinforce the human/pet bond. • Help establish disaster preparedness protocols to provide safe evacuation and sanctuary to animals in our area in times of crisis and emergencies.
Valhalla Rescue was officially formed in 1999 when the director Patti Angelzi started her new career as a vet tech after being laid off off from her previous career at Boeing. Foralmost two decades Patti had been a volunteer for other rescue organizations and when your new employer mentions the opportunity to help medical needs dogs that came through his Veterinary Clinic Patti got right on board and together they started saving the lives of some of the most vulnerable members of our animal community. In 2009 Patty made it official by becoming a 501 c 3 and we have never looked back.
Today, not only do we still help animals with chronic and acute medical conditions, but we also help the two legged Companions of those animals.
Valhalla Rescue operates the former Lewis County animal food bank providing regular support for seniors, the houseless and veterans in our community with food and other resources to maintain their human animal bond.
Our hope is to better utilize the 10 acres of land that we have here in Winlock to provide resources for larger animals and also support for other animal welfare organizations in our area when needed.
Our future goal is also to provide resources for victims of domestic violence to allow them the opportunity to leave their dangerous situations with their companion animals without fear or retribution.
Like any organization we hope to continue and grow and become a permanent resource in the state of Washington to help those that need us the most.
