Mission Statement:

Animal Rescue Corps’ mission is to end animal suffering through direct and compassionate action, and to inspire the highest ethical standards of humanity towards animals.


Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) is a 501c3 nonprofit animal protection organization that takes direct action in three ways.  First, we conduct rescues of animals who fall victim to abuse and natural disaster.  Second, we create public awareness of animal suffering.  Third, we offer training and assessments for animal shelters, professionals and volunteers.

We work closely with government institutions, law enforcement agencies, other animal protection organizations, and communities to improve and strengthen relationships between humans and animals.

Animal Rescue Corps seeks to inspire a fundamental idea: that our responsibility to animals is vital, and all lives have value.  This ideal benefits us all in many ways — our physical safety, our economic systems, our mental health, our emotional well-being and our environment.

About Us:

The establishing members of Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) have more than 40 years of collective experience in animal protection.  Founded by Scotlund Haisley, a 20-year veteran in this field, ARC provides expert animal protection services throughout the US and beyond.

ARC brings the professional expertise, human resources, tactical equipment, and financial backing necessary for its rescue operations, including investigations and permanent placements.  ARC works with communities that don’t have the resources to confront the cruelty themselves, especially when large numbers of suffering animals are involved.

ARC further addresses animal cruelty by generating public awareness, training volunteers, increasing community involvement and other measurable actions.  Ultimately, ARC works within the legal system to affect lasting change from the inside out.

Animal Rescue Corps is unique because of its streamlined internal structure and its well-proven methods of external operations.  Efficiency, effectiveness and expertise make ARC a leader in rescuing animals and serving communities.
