Valentines Challenge

 Join Our Valentine’s Day Challenge!

WE HAVE REACHED OUR $6,000 GOAL FOR OUR  VALENTINE’S DAY CHALLENGE! Total has been added to our over-all Capital Campaign!

We need to purchase two Heart Rate Monitors for our new Veterinary Hospital at a cost of $1,500 each. Cheeko is just one of over 100 animals that AARCS has taken into care so far in 2017. It is incredibly important to AARCS to provide the highest standard of care to each animal brought into our programs. To minimize risk while animals under-go anesthesia for surgery, all animals are monitored closely using tools such as heart monitors.
This is where we could really use your help!


Don’t let their rescued hearts skip a beat this Valentines!
Contribute to the AARCS Doppler Fund (Heart Rate Monitor) for our AARCS Veterinary Hospital!

We hope to raise $3,000 in ONE DAY!

WOW! A GREAT BIG SHOUT OUT to the Spindler Family for covering the cost of our two heart rate monitors! We would like to CHALLENGE everyone to help us by MATCHING THEIR DONATION bringing our NEW Valentine’s Challenge up to $6,000! This will cover the cost of a multi-monitor which will manage all the other vitals!

Every dollar makes a difference and will help us save the lives of so many animals who need us the most!  

*Any funds raised above and beyond this amount will go towards our over-all Capital Campaign fund.

We would like you to meet Cheeko!

“Hi there! The name is Cheeko! When AARCS asked me to share a few words for their Valentine’s Day newsletter, it made me blush. AARCS rescued me at the beginning of January 2017 and I won’t lie, I was in really ruff shape. You know, I came from a place where dogs don’t really stay in the house.  Instead, they stay outside and fend for themselves, like wild animals, which sure wasn’t easy.
Please don’t be fooled by the way I look – all big and buff – ‘cuz deep down I am as soft as an ice cream cone.  Really, I swear! In fact, I was the dog that the other neighborhood dogs picked on and bullied every day. When my rescuers came along, they found me pretty beat up with open sores and old scars all over my body. I wasn’t a pretty sight at all and I wasn’t having much fun, but it was all I had ever known.
These people took me to a place called ‘Safe Haven’, and that’s just what it was. It was so nice to be treated with kindness and compassion.  And then…it happened!  My tail began to wag and I just couldn’t stop it! Not that I wanted to anyway. I wasn’t quite sure what it was, this big, heavy feeling in my chest, but it was something really great that I had never felt before. I think they call it LOVE!  They treated my sores and provided me with comfort, delicious food and a bed to call my own. Soon after, I went to a super foster home and guess what?!  As of last week, some people had that same feeling for me and I have been ADOPTED! If there is a lottery for dogs, this was it and I won…BIG TIME!”

Cheeko required more than just routine medical care such as vaccines, dewormer, microchip and neuter. This big fella required antibiotics and medicated baths for his open sores and skin infections as well as dental surgery to remove multiple fractured teeth due to past trauma. We are so grateful to be apart of his journey, including his rescue, rehabilitation and helping him find his forever family.
