Rest In Peace Sweet Ariel

Only a handful of people got to meet Ariel, but she was loved by many at AARCS. Ariel was rescued on the weekend with a badly prolapsed vagina and bladder. The picture is to graphic to share. She was rushed to an emergency veterinary hospital where unable to assist with an injury so extensive that required specialist attention she was was taken to Western Veterinary Specialists. The amazing team of vets and techs there put everything they could into Ariel’s care. She underwent a three hour complicated and expensive surgery yesterday to repair her damaged body as well as two blood transfusions.
Ariel came of the surgery well and we were positively optimistic that she would soon be coming home. Sadly, the dreaded call from the vet clinic came in to report that Ariel slipped into cardiac arrest and although numerous attempts were made to revive her, she left us tonight for a better place. We are sadden and shocked, but we knew that we did everything possible to give her a chance at life.
To her rescuers… thank you for finding her that day. She didn’t die alone, cold and scared. You saved her life, she died peacefully knowing someone cared.
To the coordinators/volunteers who managed her care, who even though you never met her, loved her like your own.
To the veterinarians and techs who believed that her life was worth it, thank you for trying with all your heart to help her.
Rest in Peace sweet Ariel. Godspeed to the Rainbow Bridge.

What AARCS Has To Say

Inga has been with us at AARCS for a couple years now.  She is an amazing photographer and such a dedicated volunteer.  There is never a time that I send a request for photos to Inga that she has turned me down.  She is always willing to help and always helps on short notice too.  Inga is pleasant, professional and a true joy to work with.  In the time I have been working with her, she has become a great friend and someone I will hope will be part of my life for many, many years.

Inga, I can’t say enough to express what an honor it has been to work with you.  I hope for my sake and for AARCS sake you stay with our organization for many years to come. ~Jen

A Few Words From Inga

I stumbled upon AARCS website in winter of 2011 and was astonished by what I saw and read.  I knew right then that this was an organization that I wanted to volunteer for.  Not long after introducing myself to Deanna and asking if they could use some help with the animal photos, I was on my first assignment.  Since then I’ve photographed hundreds of adoptables and each one has touched my heart.  

My journey with AARCS has been rewarding beyond measure.   It’s given me a platform to do what I love which is photography – and it can’t get any better than photographing adoptables.  Thank you AARCS for welcoming me into your organization – I’m so proud to be working alongside so many amazing volunteers.  Together we are making a difference!
