AARCS' KENNEL CAMPAIGN ]

Once again longtime supporter, Heather Waddell has given us a challenge and we need your help! When we approached Heather about the need for the kennels for AARCS Safe Haven & Veterinary Hospital, she said she was willing to donate half the costs – ($20,000) IF we can raise $20,000.

So for every $1 you donate, Heather will donate $1.Give a Donation to AARCS!

$20,000 can be daunting, so we thought we’d have some fun while raising these much-needed funds. In order to unlock each kennel below, we need to raise $1,000 – 20 times! When we reach $1,000 increments the kennel door will open and reveal a surprise video, story and a giveaway!

[ BONUS! ]

Your name will be entered into a draw for a “Door Prize,” which will be drawn from the names of those donors who have donated towards that kennel. Donate again after each kennel door is opened and be entered to win again!

A word from Melissa:

I absolutely love AARCS in every way.  From the moment I first did the orientation I realized there was this feeling of fullness in my heart, a sense of belonging and a feeling of comrodery towards a common goal to save as many lives possible no matter the obstacles.  I am so thankful to be a part of the most amazing group of people I have ever met, who show me daily that we can make such a great difference and there are no limits to what can be achieved.  I never knew before I volunteered and fostered how life changing it could be for us to see these animals blossom into happy healthy successful lives.  I have always loved animals, but now that love and passion makes a difference.  We have been lucky enough as a family to find through fostering for AARCS the most perfect fit of a dog in our home, he helps us with every foster , he helps them to transition and learn in our home.  As well a young cat that brings unending laughter and joy each and every day.  Thank you AARCS for always being the voice of the voiceless and ensuring so many animals have a happily ever after.  Cheers too many more fulfilling years growing with this wonderful organization.
 
Thank you

A word from our Volunteer Manager:

We are so grateful to have Melissa as part of the AARCS Family. Over the years, she has been involved in a number of areas, including fostering a number of dogs and cats, being a part of our Cat Caregiver team here in the shelter, and assisting with planning large AARCS fundraising initiatives.
In addition to that, both her and her husband have been incredibly involved in assisting us with the completion of our new building. They have both spent countless hours putting their professional painting skills to use (which we are incredibly thankful for as green paint is very unforgiving!).
Melissa, thank you so much for always keeping a smile on your face and for staying positive, even when the situation is less than ideal. Thank you for all of the love you have shown to each and every animal who has crossed your path.
Keep up the great work!
Rachel Howard
Volunteer Manager

Bronco_surglightYou can light up an AARCS animals’ life by contributing to the cost of the surgical lighting for our new Veterinary Clinic. Animals just like Bronco, who required an orthopedic surgery as a result of massive trauma after being hit by a car. This left Bronco with a fractured hip which was very painful and caused him to ‘hop’ from pain and discomfort as he walked. By helping AARCS to acquire professional surgical lighting for our clinic, this type of surgery can be performed in-house saving us enough to do twice as many life changing surgeries!

Please consider giving a donation below to help us provide surgical lighting for animals in need of extensive veterinary care in our new Veterinary Clinic!
