Annual Appeals

Animal Rescue, Inc. hosts three annual events, three mailers and sends out one hard copy newsletter every year.

Candlelight Memorial Service

The Candlelight Memorial Service offers staff, volunteers, and friends of ARI a chance to give thanks and remember their loved ones. Every Spring we host guests in our Memorial Garden and light one candle for every memorial we receive. We invite an honorary speaker offer words of remembrance, offer light fare and console each other through the pain of losing our loved ones.
