AARCS Veterinary Hospital

The AARCS Veterinary Hospital is designed specifically for the homeless animals in AARCS’ care!
Our New Home + Vet Clinic is located at 5060 – 74 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2C 3C9!

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.


AARCS is a leader in the animal welfare community, and Albertans turn to us for help. 3,200 animals come through AARCS programs each year. We have an exceptional medical program 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. However, this also means that the medical expenses to support those animals surpass all other financial requirements.

This has created a critical need to expand our operations and build our own private AARCS Veterinary Hospital.

Forming the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) Veterinary Hospital will reduce our medical costs by approximately half a million dollars in the first year alone, with a potential savings of $5,000,000 or more over ten years. With these savings in veterinary fees, we will be able to help more homeless and abandoned animals. This will allow more of your donated dollars to be applied directly to animal rescue and care.

In December 2016, AARCS started their expansion project to build a NEW SHELTER and VETERINARY HOSPITAL! With your continued support, we will be providing quality care for the thousands of animals each year!

“The project for a veterinary hospital is essential and will allow the organization to continue to help hundreds of animals, reducing animal homelessness and improving our community. The project will drastically reduce costs for the organization allowing them to have an even bigger impact.”

“The Alberta Animal Rescue Crew is a very innovative and stable organization. Without them, our organization would struggle to place the many unwanted animals we receive at our clinics and it would be very challenging to implement the new program for the Siksika First Nation.”
