Kroger donates van to local animal sanctuary

NEW RICHMOND, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati/Dayton Division of Kroger has announced that they have donated one of their service vans to the Angel's Rest Animal Sanctuary on Wednesday.

 The van was detailed, given a new set of tires and logo, and presented to the founder of Angel's Rest, Perla Kline last Thursday.

 "I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to Kroger for the new addition to our sanctuary," said Kline. "We at Angel's Rest are so small that this vehicle is a life changer. The van is exactly what we needed. I am forever grateful."

 Angel's Rest is a non-profit "retirement home" for animals that have been deemed not adoptable by other agencies. The animals are taken out of situations where they are in imminent danger and give them a comfortable place to spend the rest of their lives,

 "Angel's Rest is an outstanding organization," said Rueben Shaffer, Vice President of Operations for Kroger's Cincinnati/Dayton Division. "They have plans to expand their operation and provide invaluable community outreach campaigns. Elder Paws, one of their programs, matches some of the older dogs with elderly individuals for companionship and love for the pet and the person. All of us a Kroger are glad we could make this happen."
