A.R.C. serves the Flathead Native American Indian Reservation by providing a sanctuary where animals heal people and people heal animals. At the A.R.C., victims of trauma find healing and therapy by helping rehabilitate neglected, under-socialized and traumatized rescue dogs and horses.
A.R.C. envisions a Flathead Indian Reservation where afflicted and vulnerable human and canine community members always find a helping hand and a safe place to receive healing, nurturing and rehabilitation.
A.R.C. is inspired by a holistic approach that acknowledges the connections between socioeconomic and historical realities confronting tribal communities and the plight of animals on Native American Reservations. A.R.C.'s work is guided by its Cultural Sensitivity Position Statement and by its adherence to the principles of responsibility, responsiveness and respect.
