ARC provides after-school programming and in-school workshops for children in grades K-3 throughout the lower tri-state area. We also have an ARC Ambassadors program, which provides a platform for young animal lovers (age 18 and under) to actively help animals in their communities.
ARC organizes group fundraisers and events for compassionate kids to help animals. Through age-appropriate events like lemonade stands and bake sales, children decide how they want to help, and where they’d like to allocate money raised.
ARC offers opportunities for high school students through our ARC Ambassadors program, partnering students with local shelters to design, market and promote the adoption process for individual animals. This partnership helps local rescues save more animals, and provides high school students with invaluable real-life, compassion-focused business skills.Become an ARC Ambassador!
Many local animal rescue groups rely on foster families to provide shelter to their pets while looking for their forever families. Rescues typically provide all the supplies needed; you provide a loving place for the pet to stay.
Fostering provides an invaluable hands-on opportunity to teach children compassion and to help out animals in need.
At ARC, we are constantly learning about new organizations saving homeless animals, and we’re forging partnerships with the best of them. We collaborate with our shelter partners on fundraising and education events, and we believe fully in the amazing work they do — every single day — to help save animals and spread awareness about pet adoption. The people who run these shelters are examples of empathy in action! Click to learn more about our current shelter partners and help them continue the good work they do.SUPPORT OUR RESCUE PARTNERS
