ARI is in
need of event volunteers!

Sunny wants you to tell her story to potential adopters. She's spent 6 years in a puppy mill and is awaiting her

forever home.

We are looking for dedicated individuals who can transport dogs to events, talk to potential adopters and share information about our rescue. If you're outgoing, friendly, love animals and have free time on the weekend,
consider volunteering to help animals in need!

     Our "Shelter for Life" is home to hundreds of homeless dogs and cats while they await their new adoptive homes. No animal is ever euthanized because it is unwanted or because of the inconvenience of care.
     We also provide supportive services to pet owners and pets in times of extreme hardship with the goal of keeping the human-animal bond intact. We also offer pet-assisted therapy, humane education and spay-neuter surgeries, believing that prevention is the key to controlling pet overpopulation.

Pet of the Week: Duncan


Duncan has lived at ARI for most of his life. This sweet boy loves his caregivers, the other dogs and his warm bed. In short: he's enjoyed his time here.


Unfortunately, Duncan suffered a fractured leg due to a brittle bone issue. Though the vet tried diligently to repair the hind leg, it fractured two more times during his stay at the vet. It had to be amputated.


Duncan is in temporary foster and is recovering nicely. But what he really needs is a home for his senior years. He's acclimated incredibly well to his tri-pod status, and would do well in a quiet home with a single person, couple or family who likes large, silly dogs. He's always wearing a smile. Duncan used to be more wary of strangers, but the years have made him docile and friendly. If you're interested in fostering or adopting Duncan, please contact us at  

(717) 993-3232.  


Unable to foster or adopt Duncan? Consider making a contribution toward his care. You can make a secure, online donation by pushing the button below!

From Pauper to Princess: Midge Goes Home

midge home

When Midge was found wandering the streets, she was unrecognizable. This poor girl had rock-hard, matted hair around her body.
But the mystery about Midge is that she was overweight. In fact, she was large enough that she had a difficult time walking. So what happened to Midge? We imagine she had an elderly caregiver who left her out accidentally, or perhaps her caregiver passed away and the family thought it better to let Midge wander the streets and find a new home on her own. Regardless, Midge had been neglected.


Midgebefore1 Midge spent months at the rescue, dieting and hoping for her forever home with a family who wouldn't forget her or let her out to wander. We hoped for that chance for Midge as well -- a chance for a lap to sleep on and endless amounts of love.


Last week, Midge got that chance! Midge went home with someone who can give her all the attention and love she deserves. And we just received a phone call to say she's doing well!


If you're interested in adopting a senior friend, call the rescue at (717) 993-3232. Are you a senior (65+) yourself? Ask us about our Senior for Seniors program!
