Right this moment, animals are suffering in situations of large-scale cruelty and neglect, in places that lack the resources to help them

Many regions don’t have any animal services or shelters at all; others cannot stretch already stretched resources for exceptionally large situations.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Animal Rescue Corps was founded to address this underserved and neglected need. Every single day, animals suffer in situations of large-scale cruelty in places that lack the expertise and resources to save them. These animals can suffer for years or even generations.

“Without Animal Rescue Corps, there’s no way Kaufman County, or any county that’s our size, has the financial means or the manpower to do something like this.”

KAUFMAN COUNTY, TX

Because of the help of caring donors, volunteers, and supporters, there is another way. Powered by people like you, Animal Rescue Corps conducts large-scale rescues (large numbers of animals at once) from abusive and neglectful situations and from natural disasters.

Be it puppy mills, hoarding, fighting rings, exotic animal cases, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, or other emergencies, ARC is there for animals in need.

“It’s not just grabbing some dogs and taking them out… ARC has the ability to come on scene and control the scene. We’re in a mayhem state, but the pets are not. The pets are being treated one at a time, triaged if necessary, numbered, intake. Everything is in order. And in a disaster situation like this, you have to have order and control.”

STACEY ALLEMAN MCKNIGHT

DIRECTOR, POINTE COUPEE PARISH ANIMAL SERVICES

“This was something that needed to be done, but without their help, it wouldn’t have been possible. We appreciate Animal Rescue Corps for coming — not just to rescue the dogs, but to rescue us.”

As part of our rescue work, ARC also conducts investigations, collects and documents evidence, details medical findings, and provides expert testimony for any legal hearings or criminal trials related to the case.

Through every step of the journey, Animal Rescue Corps is a trusted partner to the animals, law enforcement agencies, and communities we serve. We create and nurture compassionate, professional, and effective partnerships and healthy networks to ensure positive outcomes whenever and wherever large numbers of animals and their communities are in need.

There are still no animal shelters or animal services staffing in many municipalities and cities across North America. In places like these, rescuing one animal can be a challenge, and when animals suffer in large-scale situations, there is little to no recourse. In still other places, animal control agencies cannot further stretch already stretched budgets and resources to address large-scale animal suffering or lack the specific training, networks, or equipment needed to tackle tough cases. These are the communities we help.

All at no cost to communities, because of help like yours, ARC brings all the professional expertise, human resources, tactical equipment, networks, and financial backing necessary for our rescue operations, including investigations and permanent placements. We provide all care and sheltering needs for animals until legal custody is awarded, meaning that our rescue and shelter partners can save space and resources and do what they do best: find animals forever homes.

For many municipal and law enforcement agencies, the assurance that they can address large-scale situations of animal cruelty at no charge or burden to their communities is the deciding factor in choosing to take action.

Because of ARC’s compassionate donors and volunteers like you, ARC can offer this assurance to animals in need, who may have suffered for years unaided, and to their communities. This is your compassion in action.

This puppy mill has been operating in our county for 15 to 20 years. Throughout all of our efforts, we have not been able to get this operation stopped—until today. I cannot say a big enough thank you.
