Topics include:  basic animal body language and handling, identifying veterinary emergencies, basic triage, evidence intake, emergency sheltering, and more.

BARC Level 2:   ARC’s advanced level course, which expands on BARC 1 topics and covers new rescue topics and skills.  Completion of BARC Level 1 is a prerequisite for this course.

Topics include:  anti-cruelty laws, investigations, advanced handling, behavior assessments, animal portrait photography, and more.

The purpose of this training is to provide practical information and skills that will benefit anyone interested in animal rescue. The course is designed to better prepare someone to be efficient and effective, and to keep themselves, others, and animals safe in many situations.
