2023 Kenneled for a Cause Block Party

AARCS’ Kenneled for a Cause Block Party is proudly presented by CIR Realty!

This family-fun event will have a BLOCK PARTY, street market, kids area, food trucks, adoptable animals on site and so much more! Invite your friends and family and enjoy some fun under the sun! Our goal is to raise $70,000 to help the hundreds of animals in our carebut we can’t do it without your support!

On Saturday, September 16th, the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) will be hosting its ‘Kenneled for a Cause’ BLOCK PARTY presented by CIR Realty! The event will be held at our SAFE HAVEN shelter (5060 74 Avenue SE, Calgary) from 11am to 5pm.

In the last year, we have experienced a notable rise in the length of stay for pets in shelter as finding foster homes for dogs, cats and critters has become more challenging. With this in mind, we are asking animal lovers and supporters of AARCS to put themselves in their shoes for a day, or lend a hand to someone who will! Our shelter was meant for short-term care prior to placement in a loving foster home. Each pet that comes through our doors comes with their own story, and challenges they need to overcome – which is why this is a great opportunity to provide them with a better life!

We’re doing things a little differently this year! Anyone can sign up for a chance to be SHELTERED at AARCS’ Safe Haven in support of the animals! First $500 raised qualifies YOU to be kenneled on-site the day of the event! The rest of your target BREAKOUT BOND is to set you free! 💸

We’re looking for very special VIPS to be kenneled in AARCS dog runs (fur friends are encouraged too!) and you will only be released when you have raised the pre-set target for your BREAKOUT BOND! Know someone willing to lock in their love for animals by being kenneled as a Shelter Pet for a Day?! Whether it be a boss, coworker, friend or family member – you can request a ROUND UP and we will send them one!
Should they agree to EMBARK on this mission to raise BIG BUCKS – we will help them get a fundraising page set up to start raising that $500 to secure their spot!

⭐ Round Up Request $500+
⭐ Impound Fee $750+
⭐ Rescue Raiser $1,500+
⭐ Major Medical Champion $2,500+
⭐ Superhero Supporter $5,000+
