Poor Kody suffered from Demodectic Mange and was so itchy and miserable. His fur was falling out and his skin was raw and exposed. Sadly, his papa has a medical condition that prevents him from working and the vet bill to get care for Kody was too high. Supporters of ART raised over $460 to provide treatment for the Mange. Thank you so much!


Sweet Sammy has a unique story. Hurricane Matthew displaced him for his original home and a kind senior found him in pretty rough shape. The woman fed Sammy, fell in love with him and brought him to the SPCA for shots and a spay, despite her fixed income. We wish the story had ended happily there, but there was a tumor on Sammy’s eye and it needed to be removed. Through donations from Sustaining Members and Facebook friends like you, he was able to get the necessary procedure! Many thanks!


Callie’s family has had her since she was a puppy and love her dearly. Recently, Callie developed a hematoma on her ear that needed to be drained but her family was on a fixed income and struggling with medical bills for her Papa. ART was able to raise the funds for Callie’s ear to get drained and relieve the awful pain that the hematoma was causing. Thank you for helping this loving family, to help more families in need, please consider donating at
