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 Lee

Lee is a loving and lovable 7 y/o boy whose world was turned upside down when he and his housemate found themselves in the city shelter and at risk of euthanasia due to overcrowding. Sadly, in order to save them, he and his housemate had to be separated (and she has since been adopted while poor Lee sits behind sad and depressed in boarding…) We know boarding is not the same as a shelter, but to the dogs, they don’t know the difference as they find themselves once again behind fenced walls. According to the folks who are caring for him, “He just wants to put his paws in your lap and stare into your eyes. His coat is a beautiful red color. He has a nice healthy energy level, but also likes to relax. He’s crate trained, not a big barker, and does ok on leash. He’s fine with cats, too! This sweet boy is just patiently waiting to start his new life!” —————————— Here are some additional facts about Lee: Weight: 67 pounds Age/DOB: 7 years old Gender: Male Breed: Lab mix Color: Red Good with adults: yes Good with kids: older ones Good with other dogs: yes Good with cats: yes House-trained: Unknown Crate trained: rides quietly in crate in car Energy level: medium Can be handled/touched: Yes Barker: rarely Flight risk: no Food aggressive: no Barrier aggression: no Walks on leash: Yes Rides well in car: Yes Destructive: no Needs a home with a yard: no Needs a home with another dog: No Can live in an apartment: yes ———————————— If you are able to either foster or adopt this sweet guy so he can get out of boarding (where he’s now been for quite a few months), please contact us ASAP. {NOTE: Lee is currently in boarding in SC where he was saved. Ground transport to the northeast will be arranged for a committed foster or adopter!}
