Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta. We are a federally registered charity and incorporated as a society in the province of Alberta.

In Alberta, thousands of cats and dogs are homeless, abandoned, abused, or living in horrendous conditions.  Although we may not see them on the streets of our cities and towns, it is estimated that well over 25,000 small animals are rescued or surrendered in Alberta alone.

AARCS was founded in 2006 and is a strong network of individuals and families concerned about the welfare of abandoned, abused, and surrendered animals in the province of Alberta.  Our volunteers range in age from young children to seniors, all are animal lovers and want to make a difference.

AARCS initially started with our Rescue, Rehabilitate & Re-home Program. This program entails rescuing animals and placing them in the safety of our foster home network while awaiting suitable placement in permanent adoptive homes.  These animals are provided with all the necessary veterinary care, as well as food, rehabilitation, training, kindness, and support.

We have expanded operations to include additional programs, such as Spay/Neuter & Disease Prevention Initiative, Emergency Medical Care Program, Emergency Shelter Care Program, Humane Education Program, Dog House Program, Pet Food Program and our recently opened Shelter in Edmonton (North Haven).

Our shelters are designed to provide temporary housing, emergency shelter and quarantine for animals.
