The Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society's mission is "Changing Lives through Kindness" to create our vision of "A Compassionate World for All Animals."

In Alberta, thousands of cats and dogs are homeless, abandoned, abused or living in horrendous conditions. We work closely with rural communities where there is limited to no animal services.

In 2016, AARCS took in over 3,000 cats and dogs. We cared for them by providing medical care, spaying/neutering, vaccinating and then found their forever families.

We have an exceptional medical program with some of the highest standards of care in the industry. This provides us with the ability to grant second chances to thousands of homeless animals. However, this also means that the medical expenses to support those animals surpass all other financial requirements . This has created a critical need to expand our operations and build our own veterinary hospital.

This spring we are planning on opening the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society Veterinary Hospital. We have leased a new property which will allow us to house more animals, provide additional office space and build our on-site veterinary hospital.

We are halfway to our goal of raising $500,000 which will help us with the build-out of the clinic, equipping the facility and program operations. More information and photos on the campaign can be found at: http://aarcs.ca/capital-campaign/
