Arcadia Animal Rescue

Arcadia Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization dedicated to alleviating the suffering of abused and abandoned animals. At Arcadia, animals are valued and the human-animal bond is celebrated. Our vision is a modern-day “Arcadia” or Utopia for all animals. While we know this is an ambitious goal, it is one we will tirelessly strive for. No animal should be euthanized to save space, because it is unwanted, or because of the inconvenience of care.

Meet Ella

Meet Ella! This precious beautiful girl has lived her entire life outside, she doesn't even know what it's like to live in a home. Ella is quite a sweetheart, she loves people and is fine with kids. She is dog selective, so a home without other dogs or cats would be ideal. Our rescue saved her from euthanasia at an overcrowded kill shelter that had run out kennel space. Due to record numbers of owner surrenders at shelters thus year, we simply do not have enough fosters. In this case, we were able to find Ella a place at a boutique boarding place, where she has been able to decompress, feel green grass under her feet and the warmth of a home like environment. Ella is well behaved, crated trained and house trained now too. We also know she has had at least one litter, and she will be spayed prior to adoption. She deserves to experience the warmth of living inside, with a loving family, who can spend time with her and just dote on her. She is super sweet and a loving pup who just needs to know she's safe, and is loved. In return, she'll love you with everything she has, for the rest of her days. If you could open your heart and home for this precious girl, please contact Anne-Marie on 919 608 9314.
