Kennel Expansion Help Wanted

The Animal Resource Center (ARC) currently houses approximately 30-35 dogs and 45-50 cats. To help better house the dogs, ARC is looking to expand our kennel facilities. In order to do this, we must once again ask the public for help. The cost of the kennel will be approximately $17,000, a small price to pay for the quality of care and love these animals receive from our dedicated members. Please help us to save, rehabilitate, and give loving care to many more animals by donating to this cause. By helping to build this new kennel, you will be assisting us in giving those animals in our care a better life until they can find a new, loving, forever-home. Please consider giving to this worthy cause.
If you can help, please send donations to
Animal Resource Center
301A Boone Rd

Please note on your check's memo line that your donation is for the new kennel.
ARC is a registered charity and receipts for tax purposes will be issued on request.

New Look

I have been posting current events to the "News" section for some time now by using the services of a web log, also known as a "blog". This allows the posting of news quickly and without requiring expensive, complicated web site management software.

The most recent news will always appear first. Older items will be further down the page.

If you prefer not to search, there are links to every page which can be accessed directly from any other page. To do so, scroll down until you see the "News Archive" section.

Thank you for your support of the animals.
