Volunteer or Donate

Our shelter runs on the generosity of our community.  Please consider volunteering your time or joining our Guardian Angel Care Club as a donor. 

Exciting News!

Thanks to PetSmart Charities GACR is happy to accept a $10,000 grant for OKRA, Operation Kitten Rescue & Adoption.  As a PetSmart adoption partner, we were eligible to receive this grant.

This grant will support adoption preparation, including vaccines, spay/neuter, and medical care for surrendered kittens in Garland County and vicinity.  

Urgent Donation Request
Two 6-week-old kittens were brought to the shelter just after New Year's.  They are litter mates and both have conditions that will require surgery.  One appears to have a hernia the size of a golf ball and the other kitten has a deformed leg and foot.
At this time our Good Neighbor fund is depleted and donations which normally replenish this fund are not coming in.  Our Thrift Store which supports our shelter is currently closed because of COVID-19.  We are asking our Guardian Angels family to make a donation to help cover the upcoming cost of the surgeries.

COVID-19 Updates

Guardian Angels has been a constant here in Hot Springs, Arkansas since 2001, rescuing, feeding, vetting, and adopting out cats to forever homes.


During the COVID19 pandemic, the shelter lost a large part of its income with the temporary closing of the thrift store and adoption center.


Now reopened with limited hours and adoptions by appointment, the shelter needs your help to achieve our mission until this pandemic passes.

You can make a donation through this PayPal link or by mail to our address above.
