ARC takes in many animals, most are for adoption, but also sadly we sometimes have animals that are not possible to rehome or require ongoing medical care. In these, thankfully quite rare cases, we continue to support these animals to live in permanent foster homes in line with our values

We passionately believe that every animal is entitled to be loved and cared for and live a healthy and happy life

We believe that euthanasia is only ever an option when an animal has a poor quality of life or if they are a potential threat to other animals or humans.

This page will showcase the sanctuary animals currently in our care and share their stories. From time to time we fundraise specifically to cover their medical bills as this can be quite a burden despite the vet discounts we already are fortunate to receive.

If you would like to support our  Sanctuary animals, please visit our Donations page Thank you!
