Compassion In Action

Mission Statement:
Animal Rescue Corps’ mission is to end animal suffering through direct and compassionate action, and to inspire the highest ethical standards of humanity towards animals.

Purpose:
Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) is a nonprofit animal protection organization that takes direct action in three ways. First, we conduct rescues of animals who fall victim to abuse and natural disaster. Second, we create public awareness of animal suffering. Third, we offer training and assessments for animal shelters, professionals and volunteers.

We work closely with government institutions, law enforcement agencies, other animal protection organizations, and communities to improve and strengthen relationships between humans and animals.

Animal Rescue Corps seeks to inspire a fundamental idea: that our responsibility to animals is vital, and all lives have value. This ideal benefits us all in many ways — our physical safety, our economic systems, our mental health, our emotional well-being and our environment.

About Us:
The establishing members of Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) have more than 40 years of collective experience in animal protection. Founded by Scotlund Haisley, a 20-year veteran in this field, ARC provides expert animal protection services throughout the US and beyond.

ARC brings the professional expertise, human resources, tactical equipment, and financial backing necessary for its rescue operations, including investigations and permanent placements. ARC works with communities that don’t have the resources to confront the cruelty themselves, especially when large numbers of suffering animals are involved.

ARC further addresses animal cruelty by generating public awareness, training volunteers, increasing community involvement and other measurable actions. Ultimately, ARC works within the legal system to affect lasting change from the inside out.

Animal Rescue Corps is unique because of its streamlined internal structure and its well-proven methods of external operations. Efficiency, effectiveness and expertise make ARC a leader in rescuing animals and serving communities.

On so many levels…

Here is an article that bothers me and is wrong on so many levels.

First, as “cute” as it may sound, this type of animal exploitation for “entertainment,” is abuse, no matter how you try to explain it away. While it may be “fun” for these puppies to chase a ball down a field, when one of them is permanently injured just like this three-month old schnauzer, Alvin,  is, it is truly sad. Tragic.

The byline on this article if from someone named “Hilarious.” Really?

This is entertainment? This puppy, who had no choice in whether or not he played this “game” is now going to be paralyzed for the rest of his life. All so someone could be “entertained.” And, it wouldn’t surprise me, also so someone could make a few bucks.

So, if you think this is “funny,” or “hilarious,” or innocent “harmless” entertainment, that’s the same thing they say to justify other animal exploitation like circuses, rodeos, and dog and horse racing.

Tragic. And this was broadcast on Animal Planet. I wonder if they condone and sponsor this garbage?

Puppy Bowl Marred By Tragic Spinal Injury

02/08/11 — Hilarious

Puppy Bowl VII, puppy football’s biggest annual event, came to a complete standstill Sunday when Alvin, a 3-month-old schnauzer mix, suffered a freak spinal injury while chasing down a loose squeaky football. The injury, which occurred only minutes before the Kitty Halftime Show, followed a routine midfield burst of play. Slow-motion footage from the sideline and water-dish cameras show Alvin romping flat out down the sidelines before taking a risky crossing route to come at the football from an angle, at which point two larger puppies, Amy, a golden retriever, and Big Red, a 13-week-old shepherd mix, laid a massive hit on Alvin, who responded with a shrill yelp that was suddenly and ominously cut off. “I heard something snap and I knew immediately something was wrong,” said play-by-play announcer Jeff Bordner, who watched as a team of veterinarians attended to Alvin, who lay motionless on Animal Planet Stadium’s turf. “We applauded when he was carried off the field, but it didn’t look good. The replay shows his neck twisting at almost a right angle.” Sources at Silver Spring Animal Hospital, where Alvin was rushed after the injury, said that the pup has no feeling in his paws, and that even if he lives he will more than likely never frolic on his own again.” w/ photos
