Toyota gave away 100 cars and one was in the Tri-State

NEW RICHMOND, OH (FOX19) - Toyota is giving away 100 cars to charity and one those charities is in New Richmond, Ohio.

Angel's Rest Animal Sanctuary in New Richmond received at 2012 Toyota Highlander. The sanctuary takes unwanted animals that even other shelters turn down.

Before winning this car, the group relied on personal vehicles of their volunteers to transport animals.

"We do a lot of special needs and large giant breeds," Perla Kinnie, Founder of Angel's Rest Animal Sanctuary, "We take in unadoptable animals that other rescues can't afford to take in or don't want to take in. A vehicle like this we'll be able to fit more than one dog and have them travel in the safety of crates."

Toyota used their Facebook page to take votes and decide the winners of the contest.
