Heavy Hearts for Lucas

It is with a heavy heart we share that our Joyce M's buddy out at Best Friends, Lucas, has passed away.

Thought to be one of Vick's most seasoned fighters, Lucas was one of the many dogs a lot thought would never be safe around anyone and should be killed. Best Friends gave him a chance though and here is a photo of him last year with his purple collar (meaning he was allowed hands on time).

Thank you for proving them wrong, Lucas. Thank you for your sweetness and the strength to move past your past. You will be forever loved (and missed) by many.

R.I.P., sweet boy Lucas

Volunteer Opportunities!

Joa’s Arc needs your help to help the animals.

We get emails every day about local animals in need. Anything from a bit shy to injuries that will more easily become infected in a shelter or conditions staff cannot properly handle in overly crowded shelters. Kitten season is now here, making space even more of an issue. These special animals barely have a chance...

Joa’s Arc needs foster homes for dogs and cats - expenses paid by Joa’s Arc and we're here to help with any questions you might have as well.

Unable to foster? That's ok!

- Hold a bake sale.
- Find us community events to attend to spread the word about our work with the animals.
- Help us table events.
- Collect cat and dog food.
- Share our wish list.
- Hold a yard sale to benefit Joa’s Arc.

Have ideas for a fundraiser? Please share it with us. There are so many ways to help!
