For every meowbox sold, meowbox donates a can of cat food, or monetary equivalent to a shelter or rescue. This month, we donated to Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society in Calgary, Alberta.

Meet the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society! This grassroots organization in Calgary aims to create a more compassionate world for animals through humane education, community resources, and much more.

An estimated 3,500 animals go through AARCS’s programs every year. Since the beginning of 2020 alone, over 1,075 animals have passed through their doors. AARCS may be known most widely to the public for their adoptable pets, but they also run a number of other amazing programs, including a food bank, TNR programs, extensive foster network, spay/neuter assistance, and an on-site emergency veterinary hospital.

AARCS is operated by over 1,800 volunteers and foster parents throughout the province of Alberta. Volunteers can be found working at the shelter, helping out at AARCS’s rescue or spay/neuter clinics, hosting neighbourhood fundraisers and adopt-a-thons, or creating digital content for the organization’s website and social media. AARCs is about more than just their animal welfare work: they bring together the community through a shared passion for animals and the desire to foster meaningful change.
