Back to Normal / Happy & Strong

   Back to Normal - Happy and Strong!

  I am so happy and proud to say that ARAR is open again for normal operations beginning Thursday, July 10th. Two adult dogs were diagnosed with parvo, but hey made it through the illness with flying colors. I believe that our conscientious precautions stopped this virus in its tracks. Special, very special thanks to humane officer and our asst. director, Cathy Cunningham, and volunteer, Jean Sexaur for their knowledgeable vet tech assistance and fostering that really saved the lives of these two dogs. We owe a tremendous thanks to our volunteers who pitched in and helped in so many ways to keep our dogs happy, safe and exercised. 
  Finally, thank you to the prospective adopters of almost a dozen dogs for their understanding and patience. Like many crisis situations, the experts say that it truly "takes a village" to overcome the problem - our animal rescue "village" of caring and dedicated people was instrumental in this joyous outcome for ARAR. Thank you and God bless!  Nancy Shannon, Director

We have an opportunity for our cats to be seen each day at the Washington Petco. 

However, we need volunteers to make this happen.
