Armadale Community Animal Rescue was founded in February 2013 in an effort to reduce the number of animals killed as a result of being abandoned or homeless in the local community.
1. To run a community animal rescue and shelter for the community by the community.

2. To rescue animals from the pounds and the community for rehoming.

3. To work with the community to educate and assist with desexing and microchipping for dogs and cats.

4. To promote and engage the community in animal welfare.

*Who are ACARG?*
The Armadale Community Animal Rescue Group (ACARG) is a registered not-for-profit volunteer organisation dedicated to saving lost, stray, abandoned & surrendered animals.

We are a no kill shelter and only euthanise when advised by a veterinarian practitioner.

ACARG supports and encourages responsible pet ownership. The cat laws in WA require all cats that have reached 6 months of age to be microchipped, sterilised and registered with your local council. The Dog Laws in WA require dogs to be microchipped and registered with your local council if it is over 3 mths of age.

*How are we funded?*
We receive no government funding and rely on our adoption fees, donations but mainly rely on the income from our Op Shops. We have three Op Shops.

1) - Unit 5, 2 Gillam Drive, Kelmscott.
2) - Unit 8, 2 Gilliam Drive, Kelmscott.
3) - Unit 4 1-5 Sunlight Drive Port Kennedy.

All money raised goes directly to providing discounted desexing and microchipping of animals for pensioners and disabled card holders.(Desex and microchipping for cats and microchipping for dogs) Snip and Chip
