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 Alexa

Alexa is looking for a furever home to call her own. She was pulled from the Trenton Animal Shelter at a trying time. She has been in foster with two animal advocates as she healed from knee surgery. Alexa is approximately 1 and a half to 2 years old and weighs 37 pounds. She is housebroken and currently going through a on leash training regimen. Alexa is an active dog who loves playing with toys and balls. She is a loving and eager to please dog. She loves to go swimming and on hikes, so an active adopter would be great! This sweetheart is also very people friendly. However, she doesn't realize she is 'mighty' when with smaller children! So her ideal home would probably be with a strong individual or couple, who can become her trusted pack leader!. Alexa's forever home MUST be with a EXPERIENCED dog owner, in a private home that must have a secured fenced in yard. No small children and no other animals. Please send an inquiry if you are interested or have any questions about possibly adopting Alexa. This girl cannot wait to join a family of her own! GM To adopt, go to To foster, go to
