Animal Rescue Corps

Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) is a nonprofit animal protection organization whose mission is to end animal suffering through direct and compassionate action, and to inspire the highest ethical standards of humanity towards animals.

ARC takes direct action in three ways. First, they conduct rescues of animals who fall victim to abuse and natural disaster. Second, they create public awareness of animal suffering. Third, they offer training and assessments for animal shelters, professionals and volunteers.

ARC works 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.
The establishing members of Animal Rescue Corps 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.

  1. One of their founders, and President (Scotlund Haisley), was a neighbor of mine for many years in D.C. He is a terrific person, talented artist, loving husband and father, and dedicated animal-lover. For more than 14 years, I am proud to know him. Thanks for spreading the word about this great group of people!
