Animal Rescue Center was formed in 1997 and became a non-profit organization (501c3) in 1998. A.R.C. is a no-kill, non-profit organization made up of volunteers and are supported solely by donations and adoption fees . (Feline: $125 - $175.00) (Canine: $125.00-$250.00). Your tax-deductible gifts are greatly appreciated. The donations and adoption fees keep the animals up to date on shots, includes getting them spayed/neutered, microchipped, medication as needed, food and shelter. Our administrative staff is also comprised of volunteers and do not receive compensation for their efforts. 100% of the adoption fee and donations help cover the cost of vet care before you adopt the pet. We do have the right to deny an adoption if we feel the person does not meet our organization's adoption criteria.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
