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 Hershel

PLEASE HELP! *** URGENT - NEEDS FOSTER ASAP! Hershel was saved from euthanasia when he found himself in an overcrowded NC shelter after a good Samaritan almost hit him in a gas station. This happy little guy jumped right into his car and the finder thought he was doing a good thing by bringing him to the shelter never expecting that the dog he just saved with soon be facing euthanasia because no one ever came looking for him. :,-( He is a 3 y/o, 55 lb. happy-go-lucky and energetic boy who is a terrier mixed with something else; not sure what but you can see his fur is fluffier than a typical staffy/terrier. He takes treats very gently and loves attention!! Sadly, we know he has been beaten because he flinches with any movement around his head/face which is heartbreaking but is a testament to his happy-go-lucky, forgiving spirit. Hershel is now back in a boarding facility, and it feels like a shelter to him. He really needs his furever home, as long term boarding just is starting to affect his mental well-being. *** If you can help, please contact us ASAP or text/call 732-604-0625! Thank you for caring about a dog in need! ***
