ARC has been extremely busy with new adoptees, both cats and dogs. With the increase in adoptees we have higher operating expenses for food, veterinary services and general supplies. Donations can be sent to ARC PO BOX 393 Carroll, IA 51401.

If you love and care for animals please consider becoming a foster home for one of the pets at Animal Rescue of Carroll. Call 712-790-9116 and leave a message if you are willing to help and we will call you back with more information. Thank you.

Current News
New Animal Shelter

We are SO VERY thankful for everyone who has come forward with a pledge/donation for our shelter. It would not have become a reality without a community team effort. I will tell you there are few and far between animal rescue shelters like ours for a town of 10,000 in the state of Iowa. Again Carroll can be very proud of our community's progressive attitude.

We remain a 100% volunteer organization. And because of our animal population in our shelter we need even more volunteers. You can learn how to volunteer by visiting our web site at animalrescueofcarroll.org or leave a message at 712-790-9116. You can also contact us on Facebook.
