I love the fact that I do not have to weed through the horrific photos of animal cruelty and constant cross-posting, just to ask a question or find some new professionals to network with.

Thank you for creating a drama-free forum where I can ask questions, share opinions and share with other like-minded animal rescue professionals. I am very excited about the possibilities that ARPA will bring to our industry.

Joining ARPA was a great decision for me. I have been able to connect with other animal rescue professionals and have grown my network extensively. I now have contacts in areas of the country that I didn’t previously and I’m looking forward to building my network even more.
