AARCS is a non-profit organization that relies on the generosity of the public. We do not receive government funding and rely on donations and minimal adoption fees to help cover the costs of all our expenses, the majority being veterinary care for our animals in foster care.
While we have the manpower, drive and ambition, financial support is essential to cultivate and maintain not only the basic costs, but to further develop our programs and initiatives. Please check out our Programs Page for more details.
Itís easy to donate and we make every dollar count!
