Bear's-Angels-Logo-crop

Named after the Tortorella family’s beloved dog, Bear’s Angels is a program of the Tortorella Foundation that supports the efforts of those who work together to aid animals in need of assistance that falls outside of traditional animal welfare services.  The program partners with shelters, rescues and individuals who catch “fallen angels” — animals requiring additional training and TLC, elderly animals who do not shelter well and those with medical issues that rescues cannot address.

Bear’s Angels and its partners reflect the Tortorella Foundation’s mission that people working together, sharing talent and expertise, and learning from each other can better the world.  The Tortorella Foundation supports many efforts by underwriting unique programs that promote adoptions, emergency care for abused or abandoned animals, rescue and transport from high-kill shelters and the construction of animal housing and play yards to assist rescues caring for homeless dogs and cats.
