HELP US HELP THEM

These are just a few of our current residents at the Animal Refuge Center. They're each in search of their forever home and would love to come home with you though there are many ways you can support the animals at ARC if adoption is not an option.

OUR MISSION

The Animal Refuge Center is a 501c3 Non-Profit animal welfare society. We are a non-euthanasia organization dedicated to caring for all homeless animals brought into our care.

As the largest no-kill shelter/sanctuary in SW Florida, we provide interim shelter and medical care to homeless, injured or abandoned animals.  Our philosophy avows that once an animal is accepted for adoption, it will not be destroyed to make room for another. 

We place approximately 500 dogs and cats per year into responsible, loving homes through direct and indirect adoptions.  

ARC’s on-going mission is to provide community education as to the needs and care of animals, and public awareness regarding the importance of spaying and neutering their animal companions, with the ultimate result being the elimination of euthanasia.

 

WE RELY ON YOUR GENEROSITY : DONATE TODAY!

The Animal Refuge Center could not survive were it not for the kindness and generosity of the public.  Through donations acquired by caring people, ARC has cared for and found homes for thousands of animals over the past 20+ years.  Just $5 can go a long way so please consider a donation!
