ARC, a for-impact volunteer organization and sanctuary, provides a clean, safe, non-euthanasia environment for cats and dogs within the Lee County area and actively seeks their adoption to qualified individuals. Through public education and an active spay and neuter program, ARC strives to reduce the number of unwanted animals in the community. ARC also promotes animal welfare advocacy and cruelty investigations, as well as utilizing education as a major resource to reach pet owners on responsible pet ownership and kindness to all creatures. ARC is a tax deductible, 501 (C)(3) status organization, funded by individual and corporate donations and memberships.
We are a volunteer driven, non-euthanasia animal shelter that provides daily care for over 300 cats and 50 plus dogs. We conduct humane education, spay/neuter outreach, off site adoption. We also offer animal behavior information.
We visited ARC this past weekend, looking for a shih tzu. Although they did not have one, they referred us to someone who had a small dog looking for a home.
While I was there, people came to look at the dogs and the volunteers there individually walked each person to see the animals.
It was clean and the volunteers seemed to know each dog by name and background.
I was very impressed with ARC and recommend them to anyone wanting to donate $$$ to their good work in helping helpless animals.
