They don't understand. But you do. Your gift of love will help prevent countless generations of innocent puppies and kittens from entering a world with no room for them. Since 2002, ARC has spayed and neutered nearly 35,000 cats and dogs in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Please consider a donation to address the problem at its cause and end the killing of adoptable cats and dogs. For shelter animals like these, there really is no place like a home.
