The ARC is dedicated to the rescue of domestic animals. ARC is committed to taking in adoptable, domestic animals through transfers from over-crowded high-kill shelters. ARC aims to pair animals with responsible, loving owners. Adoptable animals will never be put down at ARC. Unhealthy animals will receive necessary veterinary care.
