Animal Rehabilitators of the Carolinas (ARC)
ARC is a nonprofit organization that cares for orphaned and injured wildlife in Charlotte and the surrounding counties. We accept animals on a regular basis, directly or by referral from Animal Control, Humane Societies, The Carolina Raptor Center, veterinary offices, and concerned individuals. ARC is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers. We are supported totally through donations from the public and receive no city, county, state or federal funding. All animals are accepted free of charge and with no obligation to the caller.
ARC volunteers hold all required state and/or federal rehabilitation permits. Rehabilitators work from their homes and are required to maintain the highest standards of animal care, overseen by ARC’s Board of Directors, and are encouraged to participate in ongoing educational programs offered by wildlife officials, veterinarians, IWRC & NWRA (national and international rehabilitation organizations).
ARC is Dedicated to the Care of Orphaned and Injured Wildlife By:
- Providing professional medical treatment
- Meeting the complete dietary and housing needs of each species
- Supervising the complicated and delicate process of integration and release of animals back into their natural habitats.
