WILL YOU HELP US, HELP THEM?

AARCS is a leader in the animal welfare community, and Albertans turn to us for help. As many as 4,000 animals come through our programs each year. We have exceptional adoption and community support programs with some of the highest standards of care in the industry. This provides us with the ability to grant second chances to thousands of homeless animals.

Expanding to Edmonton will allow us to help even more animals by providing a space in the North for our rescued animals and an operational hub for our Edmonton volunteers.

AARCS has leased a property in South Edmonton and plans to be fully operational by the summer of 2020. Similar to our existing facility in Calgary, we are creating a home in Edmonton for our rescued animals to temporarily lay their heads before moving into foster care, a home-base for our volunteers and a place to collect & store donated supplies for our growing base of foster homes in the area. IN ADDITION, our goal is to house 50-80 adoptable cats and facilitate onsite adoptions. In order to complete the renovation, purchase appropriate housing/kennels for the animals and equip the facility with the required equipment we need your help!

Why Support AARCS?

AARCS has a proven track record of performance, fiscal responsibility, and growth management. This has helped us save over 22,000 animal lives since its inception in 2006. AARCS provides the highest level of animal care, medical management, and has developed industry-leading adoption programs. As a member of Humane Canada and a leader in animal welfare in Alberta, AARCS uses its collaborative relationships to work towards ending animal homelessness throughout our province. We rescue and work hard to tackle the underlying problem of animal homelessness through our spay and neuter community initiatives and humane education programs and animal disaster response capabilities.

Together We Can Change Lives!

These are some of the homeless, forgotten and abandoned animals AARCS supports every day. These sad stories are our reality, and the reason why we need your support. It is unacceptable for any animal to suffer. This is why AARCS exists, and we will not stand by or turn our backs on those animals. We are here to end animal suffering, and help foster a compassionate world for all.
