The Animal Refuge Center is Southwest Florida's largest no kill shelter. Once an animal is accepted in for adoption, it will not be destroyed to make room for another.
One of the things that make the ARC special is our history and reputation for, "ARC doesn't do easy." It took hold when we rescued a dog found malnourished, parasite infested and so weak he couldn’t stand. Few thought Phoenix would survive the night, but the ARC was not going to give up with the sense that he would make it. Phoenix beat the odds, survived and went on to be an ambassador for the Animal Refuge Center for years.
We have so many stories like this one since, of animals that are in need of critical care that no one else would provide. We have saved their lives and found many of them new homes. If we can't continue to do it, then those animals will be lost. We are the voice of those animals in most need. Please support the Animal Refuge Center's Surgical Fund to allow us to continue our mission.
