ARCC was founded in January 2015 by a group of concerned and determined citizens. This caring group of people came together from Lorenzo, Ralls, and Crosbyton with various backgrounds, personalities, and views, but all with the same common goal; to make a difference in the lives of the high number of discarded, neglected, and unwanted pets in Crosby County.


We are an all-volunteer nonprofit that gives their time, talents, and money to promote our mission.  We received our nonprofit 501(c)(3) status in April 2015.


In early May 2015, we received a generous donation of land from friends of the rescue, Jim and Mary Parkhill.  We hold fundraisers and accept donations to build structures and kennels for our site, and install fencing. 


We house several dogs/puppies at our location, we have implemented an effective short-term foster home program where our dogs are housed and cared for by foster caregivers in a home setting until they are either adopted or can enter our facility.
