AARCS Event Sponsorship Opportunities

In May 2015, AARCS will be hosting its third annual Art Combat fundraiser. Guests will watch as a diverse group of artist’s battle it out to be named the ultimate Calgary Live Art Winner. The competition will be based upon three, 30 minute rounds and the theme will be announced right before the combat begins. Guests will enjoy wine, hors d’oeuvres, and live music as they watch the blank canvasses turn into distinct pieces of artwork. At the end of each round, guests will have the opportunity to bid on their favorite piece.  We are currently looking to secure:

- Title Sponsor $3,500 (Available to 1 sponsor only)

- Corporate Sponsor $2,000 (Available to 3 sponsors only)

A crucial part of raising money for the event is the Silent Auction fundraiser! We are currently looking for companies willing to donate a package, item or gift certificate to be auctioned off during the event to raise funds for AARCS.

To sign up as a sponsor for this event, to donate a silent auction item or to receive more information, email Operations Manager Lindsay Black at: lindsay@aarcs.ca.


Thank You Calgary Flames and Bowdog

We would like to send a huge thank you to the Calgary Flames and their awesome wives for putting on another very successful Furbabies event for AARCS.  We had 18 players from the Calgary Flames come out to support AARCS and they helped AARCS raise $3,430!!!  The event was fantastic and so many people and their pups came to enjoy the day.  Thank you very much to Bowdog for letting us use your amazing facility and keeping us all warm!!

All cats and kittens come with their first set of shots and are spayed or neutered.

AARCS introduces Terri Nielsen

What AARCS Has To Say

We are so pleased to announce the Terri as our Volunteer of the Month for November.

One of the first things you will notice about Terri is her constant smile and bubbly personality. We dare you to have one conversation with her without walking away with a smile on your face!

Terri is one of those volunteers that will help us out wherever it is needed most. Not only is she a Shift Leader for our dog caregivers, but she is also involved with the TNR team, transport team and the cat caregivers. It is not uncommon for Terri to help us out if we are ever in a pinch. She has picked up last minute shifts on a whim, and is always happy to help, wherever needed!

We are very lucky to have Terri as part of our volunteer family. Thank you Terri for all of your hard work and dedication to the animals!
