What does AARCS do?

AARCS is a non-profit organization that relies on the generosity of the public to help cover the costs of all expenses, the majority being veterinary care for rescued and abandoned animals.  While AARCS has the manpower, drive and ambition to create a safe place for animals, financial support is essential to cultivate resources and maintain basic costs, while working to further develop the organization's programs and initiatives.  

In Alberta, thousands of cats and dogs are homeless, abandoned, abused or living in horrendous conditions. AARCS works closely with rural and First Nations communities where there are often limited or virtually no animal services.

In 2017, AARCS was able to help over 3000 cats and dogs. These animals were cared for by AARCS through the provision of medical care, spaying/neutering, vaccinating and adoption into new families. In addition, AARCS is also able to offer assistance programs such as Spay/Neuter, TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) for Cats and Emergency Medical Assistance.
