Since 1976, Animal Rescue, Inc. has been a refuge for homeless cats and dogs. They make a promise to any animal who comes through their gates: they will never be homeless again. They hope our residents will find a loving home with a lifelong companion or a loving family; but if they never find that home, they are welcomed into the ARI family.
ARI is home to several hundred animals between our different locations. They have many adoptable animals as well as animals with varied medical or behavioral needs. No animal is euthanized due to medical expense or the inconvenience of care.
While their main goal is to find a responsible home for our residents, they work hard to ensure all animals receive the level of care they need. Thanks to the help of their loyal staff and charitable volunteers, any animal can find a loving home here. They are always looking for compassionate people to donate their time and help us in our mission to care for our residents.
In addition to being a sanctuary for the unwanted, ARI offers free or discounted emergency medical services. They offer a Crisis Intervention Program, which helps keep the human-animal bond intact by providing assistance to the elderly or infirm. They also offer low-cost spay and neuter clinics to the surrounding community and trap-neuter-release (TNR) clinics for feral cats. Most of their residents are rescued strays, as they offer solace to any creature who needs them. Over the years they have opened our home to mice, cows, chickens, pigs, turkeys, goats and geese.
A grant from Grey Muzzle helps American Rescue, Inc. to support their Senior Dog Rescue Program. This program rescues the most vulnerable, at-risk population of dogs – elderly strays, puppy mill victims, and older dogs slated for euthanasia at animal control facilities. The Senior Dog Rescue Program protects and rehabilitates these dogs, both physically and emotionally.
This program provides routine and emergency veterinary care and places these dogs into safe, well-screened homes, nurturing foster families, or they are loved and care for in their Sanctuary for Life.
