We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers, fosterers, supporters, Facebook followers & especially all those lovely people who have adopted a pet from us & given them a new life.
So, from all of us here at ARC, & especially all the animals THANK YOU, we couldn't do it without you.
A Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year.

Please note - unlike larger, multi-national charities, we DO NOT send out begging letters, or carry out door-to-door collections to raise our funds. We rely entirely on a small band of unpaid, dedicated volunteers to help in our shop, at local shows & with any in-store collections, & we receive no funding from any government body. We are grateful to members of the public who voluntarily donate through our paypal account, & we also ask for a donation for every animal we rehome. Every last penny of this money goes back into the charity to help our animals. Thank you to every body for your support in the past & hope that you will continue to support us in the future.
Our cats & kittens need toys and scratching posts to help them settle in our cattery.
If you have any of these, or any other cat-related items, we would be very grateful.
We also need a rabbit hutch with run. (Our's is past its sell-by date!)
Please let us know by email, phone. or Facebook message

COULD YOU OFFER A HOME TO A RESCUE DOG WHILE WE FIND ITS' FOREVER HOME ?
We are looking for dog-friendly people to join our band of dedicated fosterers to foster our rescue dogs, so that they can learn to live in a home environment instead of kennels. We will always be available for any back up should it be required, and will carry out a home check prior to you fostering the dog.
A sad fact of life is that dogs do go missing from time to time. By having an ID tag on your dog's collar stating your name, address and telephone number, you can save your dog the unnecessary stress of a pound visit. It will also keep you on the right side of the law, as even if your dog is microchipped, your dog is required to wear an ID tag when in a public place. Failure to do so can result in up to a £5,000 fine! Stray dogs can only be picked up by dog wardens, NOT the police or rescues so the first person to contact if you've lost your dog (or if you find a stray dog) is your local dog warden.
Although it is not yet a legal requirement (except as required by the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991), it is always a good idea to have your dog micro-chipped with its own unique identification number. This way you can be traced quickly and your dog returned safe and sound.
Under Section 2 of the Control of Dogs Order 2002, every dog on a highway or in a public place must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner inscribed on it or on a plate or badge attached to it. Failure to do so is an offence against the Animal Health Act 1981 for which an owner can be prosecuted and fined.
Any dog without a collar on a highway or in a public place may be treated as a stray dog and seized by the Local Authority.
If your dog strays, you should contact your local dog warden (through the Environmental Health Department of your Local Authority) immediately and stay in regular contact. If your dog is found by the Local Authority, you must pay the Local Authority's reasonable expenses before it will be returned to you.
If after seven days, the owner of the stray dog does not come forward, the Local Authority may transfer the dog to someone else, transfer it to an establishment for stray dogs ( or in some areas, have it destroyed ).
If you are the finder of a stray dog you must either return it to its owner immediately or take it to your Local Authority. If you want to keep the stray dog, you must provide your name and address to the Local Authority and keep the dog for a period of not less than one month.
NB. Under Section 27(5) of the Road Traffic Act 1988 it is a criminal offence to have a dog on a designated road without the dog being on a lead.
