Last year, more than 35 different rescue groups came to ARC for spay/neuter services. Our team cared for more than 4,598 dogs and cats who were on their way to loving homes. ARC is honored to be the spay/neuter resource for so many wonderful organizations, but we want to do more.

Ready Set Rescue!

County shelters struggle with the high volume of cats and dogs coming in to their facilities. To help alleviate this, many of our rescue partners transfer animals from county shelters for their own adoption programs. In support of this collaboration, ARC offers our rescue partners free spay/neuter and vaccines for animals that have been transferred from any county shelter in the state of Florida.

Ready Set Rescue! saves lives

This past July, ARC received an urgent call from a county shelter out east. After an incredibly busy “kitten season,” the shelter was full and they had just received several beautiful cats but had no place to put them. They had exhausted their list of rescues, as everyone was overflowing with cats and kittens. Knowing that ARC was working on this program, they called to see if we could help place the cats so they would not have to be euthanized. ARC sent out a few emails letting the rescues know that the spay/neuter, vaccines and medical treatment for these cats would be covered if they could please get out to the shelter as soon as possible. It worked!
