Paw It Forward: Red Door Animal Shelter

Posted on

Red Door Animal Shelter is an interesting place for a few reasons. First, it’s a no-kill shelter with the added dimension of allowing animals to be uncaged. It also is one of only five no-kill shelters in the U.S. that takes rabbits along with dogs and cats. Another thing we like about Red Door is CAFé – a food assistance program for low-income pet owners. This is an innovative and compassionate way to help pets and people stick together in difficult times – when we need each other the most. It also helps prevent shelter overload.

There always seems to be an event in connection with Red Door in its immediate and surrounding neighborhoods, so it’s an easy shelter to support if you like people as well as dogs, cats and rabbits.

Tell us about an animal welfare organization close to your heart in the comments, and we’ll help spread the word.

As for Pickles, she loves rabbits. They, however, are not so fond of her. Maybe if she rests awhile, she’ll figure out how to change their minds.

    Red Door is another one I had to use and of which I think highly. Had some rabbits that I had to give up because my (now ex-) husband couldn’t deal with the hay (sneezing, coughing, etc). Being a RPO (responsible pet owner), I had had all my bunnies spayed/neutered. Red Door helped find good homes for them much more easily because they were “fixed”. Something to think about if you ever must give up a pet for adoption.
