The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To ensure that all companion animals are given a new beginning and chance to find its forever home
A New Beginning Animal Rescue (ANBAR) is a volunteer-driven non-profit. Our goal is to thoughtfully reduce unnecessary euthanasia rates; improve Weber and Davis Counties’ animal welfare with compassion and respect through community building and public education on the mutual benefits of responsible pet parenting; and enhance the quality of life of companion animals in need of a new beginning and a forever home. We strive to ensure that each and every animal rescued by ANBAR is cared for; treated with compassion, respect, and dignity. While we are located in the Roy-Layton-Ogden, UT area, we also partner with local and regional groups and accept transfer rescues from throughout northern Utah and the surrounding states. ANBAR does not turn away any companion animal but welcomes them regardless of their condition and do not place a time limit on their stay with us. We believe that euthanasia should be used only as a humane last resort, to prevent further animal suffering - such as when an animal is terminally ill, critically injured, or dying.
ANBAR embraces a multi-prong strategic service approach to contribute to reach our goal of reducing the number of adoptable animals euthanized each year. Our services include:
Rehoming and Adoption opportunities and events for ANBAR companion animals
Spay/neuter of ANBAR animals, to effectively reduce the problems of pet overpopulation
Veterinary care for ANBAR animals
Volunteer foster care program to provide housing for rescued or surrendered companion animals, until a qualified forever home is found
Volunteer foster care for special needs animals
Volunteer public education and training programs
Rehome and Adoption Opportunities and Events:
ANBAR is gratified to have a long-standing special partnership with Petco in holding adoption events every Saturday - without exception - at the Petco store in Layton, UT, since our inception in 2008. Additionally, up to 3 kittens and young cats are displayed at the Petco store for adoption, and rotated weekly to increase visibility and opportunity. Nearly 3,000 companion animals (kittens, cats, puppies, and dogs - and rabbits) have found homes through our adoption events as a result of this joint endeavor.
