Northwest Arkansas Animal Rescue's Mission

Did you know?
In 2008, over 7500 of Northwest Arkansas’ companion animals were destroyed in area shelters as a result of thoughtless breeding and irresponsible owners. The majority of these animals were healthy, loving and very adoptable. Don’t blame the shelters, they are the ones faced with the overwhelming responsibility of dealing with the animals the public is throwing away.

What is being done…Northwest Arkansas Animal Rescue (NWAAR) currently offers low cost spay and neuter coupons and monthly low cost spay and neuter clinics in Northwest Arkansas. Together with our volunteers and caring local veterinarians we have altered over 2,000 animals… effectively saving literally hundreds of thousands of animals from a probable euthanasia ending. However, this is not enough, as unfortunately, our area shelters are regularly above capacity.

You can make a difference!
We need your help. Northwest Arkansas Animal Rescue is on the forefront of a region wide spay and neuter program. We are currently raising funds to purchase, maintain and operate a mobile spay and neuter unit that will allow us to bring the low cost surgeries to a greater population of Benton and Washington counties as well as other surrounding areas. Our goal is to eventually operate the mobile clinic full time… resulting in a reduction of thousands of animals and ultimately ending the need of unnecessary euthanasia for our companion animals. The only thing standing in our way is the initial cost of the unit and supplies with the mobile unit itself costing around $120,000.

Your contribution will make a difference in helping end the cycle of animal neglect and abuse. All donations are tax deductible as NWAAR is a registered 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to the cause of helping to raise awareness and save lives.

I looked at the caged animals in the shelter… the cast offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal. And I was angry, “God,” I said “this is terrible! Why don’t you do something?” God was silent for a moment then He spoke softly. “I have done something,” He replied, “I created you.”
