Pet Tales: Edmond woman's mission is to save innocent lives
Heather Warlick: Crystal Maib, founder of Orphaned Angels Rescue in Edmond, works tirelessly to find homes for dogs in danger of being euthanized.
“I have a full-time job. I have to have a full-time job to pay for the rescue,” she said. Orphaned Angels Rescue operates solely from donations and adoption fees.
“It's all a choice. Most rescues do pay out of their own pocket,” she said. Orphaned Angels currently has eight volunteers, Maib said.
“We could so use more fosters,” Maib said. “We could save more dogs.”
Most every weekend, Maib brings several animals to locations for adoption opportunities, often in Bryant Square and other locations in Edmond. You can find out where the group will be on its Facebook page.
