Dedicated Volunteers

We have a dedicated team of volunteers who provide valuable care to the animals in our shelter. The A.R.C. has a very small staff and we couldn't possibly rescue the number of homeless, abused, and abandoned animals that we do without the help of our volunteers!

Fundraising Committee

We have a dedicated committee who make our annual fundraising activities a success each year. From planning the next big event like our annual yard sale to respresenting us at events like the Winnipeg Pet Expo, they help ensure the shelter staff can keep rescuing and rehabilitating homeless and neglected pets.

Thrift Store Staff

We have a small team of staff and volunteers who man our thrift store at 1076 Main St. They play an integral role in making sure the thrift store runs smoothly!
