About Us

Providing Care, Hope, Healing and Rescue

The Little Angels Project (LAP) is a nonprofit animal welfare organization founded by Darlene Geekie, RVT. As owner of Veterinary Angels Medical Center (VAMC) and a genuine animal lover, she saw an urgent need to rescue at-risk animals with medical needs. She formed this charitable organization in an effort to save as many dogs, cats and other animals as possible.

Animal Rescue

In 2018, Sarah Fitzgerald, owner of Designer Dog Rescue and The Little Angels Project merged together to help more animals in need. The Little Angels Project takes on all types of rescue cases, but we specialize in helping medical animals that other shelters and rescues cannot. Most are pulled from kill shelters before they are scheduled to be euthanized and given a second chance at life. Others have severe injuries or illnesses that require an extra level of care. We rescue them from tough situations, provide them with great vet care and then find them new homes.

Saving Lives

If you follow us on social media, you’ll see that every animal we care for has a powerful story. You may also notice we take in animal rescue cases just about every single day. They all need medical care, food, shelter and affection until they are deemed ready for adoption. Our goal is to get them back to full health and into a permanent home where they can live a normal life as a loving pet.

Though most of our rescues are dogs and cats, we work with all types of animals. Birds, bunnies, turtles, pigs, goats and more have been cared for by The Little Angels Project team. Our veterinary staff has also been known to volunteer their time at local zoos and wildlife parks when an exotic animal needs specialized medical help.
