The Story of Rescue Ridge
Who is Rescue Ridge?
Rescue Ridge, the owner / operator company of Highland Kennel, is one of the most respected and successful no-kill pet adoption services in the area for over two decades.
It’s our life mission to work tirelessly to find forever homes for countless dogs, cats and other animals.
We’re so grateful to the volunteers and foster parents who help us care for the sweet creatures we save.
Our fundraising efforts include our big annual event, Hollywoof and ongoing weekend events at local pet stores throughout the area.
We bring adorable cats and dogs just waiting to be loved by you.
Our team includes president Marybeth Tkach (far left, top, above) and the other invaluable board members you meet in the video above.
How We Started
Rescue Ridge started with one tenacious woman, Terry Willis, who overcame huge obstacles and devoted her life to saving animals. Learn more about Terry’s remarkable life in the short video above.
We feel that animals rescue us as much as we rescue them. The love and companionship they offer is one of life’s greatest experiences and their selflessness humbles us every day.
Proud to Be Running Highland Kennel
It was Terry’s dream and ours to expand our services and we’re so happy to be the caretakers of Highland Kennel boarding. We’re expanding and enriching the facilities and services here.
We want to meet you! Stop by Highland Kennel and come to one of our events. Events can be found under News & Events in the menu. Thank you for your interest and support.
