Compassion and Caring…..
The Animal Refuge Center is dedicated to stopping the escalating cost to impound, care for, kill and dispose of dogs and cats dying for no reason other than having been born. ARC is a non-euthanasia organization. Once we accept an animal for adoption, it will not be destroyed to make room for another.
