ROAR was founded on the simple principle that we would provide animals in need with the same love, care and compassion we show our own family pets. Since we opened our doors in 2005, we have placed almost 4,500 neglected and unwanted cats and dogs in caring homes throughout Ridgefield and our surrounding towns.
But our mission does not end at our shelter’s door. ROAR’s staff and volunteers are also committed to enhancing the remarkable bond between people and pets through our education and outreach programs, enriching the quality of lives throughout our community. For example, ROAR is a presence in schools at all levels, sharing information about the rewards and responsibilities of pet ownership, and working with student groups in developing ways to “give back” to animals in need.
Young people have the possibility to volunteer at ROAR. ROAR’s website is here
