Does your rescuer organisation need support, food and medical?
A small safety net for helping Companion Animal rescuers.
The ARC team started out in rescuing dogs, cats and companion animals. We know what it’s like needing to feed, vet and support animals through seasons and problems. We originally started the ARC program to help freecycle supplies that were being given away and get them into the hands of rescue groups that need them. Since then we have scaled to support a number of programs nationally but Companion Animals are always core to our work and what we do.
ARC is donated by major vendors near date and damaged stock as well as any large over runs of supplies. We work to spread these out to rescuers as wide as we can across the country.
We will also try to match freecycled or major donations with rescuers. This could be anything, depends what we get. Cages, crates . . weird dog contraptions, leashes and leads. We work to try and support rescuers in an area to make contact with local rescue groups and get support.
Our rules are pretty straight forward
We will work to help with small food and supplement support as it comes up. We cannot give away large loads of food to one group and then leave others to suffer. So we ask that you make requests that are sparing and are not entitled
We offer advice, we offer support, but at the end of the day if you have gotten into companion animal rescuing you HAVE TO fundraise and feed, medicate and manage your animals.
