Adopt an Angel, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in New Hanover County, will take part in the Saving Pets Challenge for July. The challenge began July 6 and ends Aug. 5.
An anonymous donor who adopted their dog from Adopt an Angel several years ago offered a $10,000 donation if the organization can raise $10,000. It costs Adopt an Angel on average $142 to save each rescued animal. Special needs animals cost more in veterinary care, as do animals that stick around longer than usual, getting overlooked.
