Since 1976, Example Animal Rescue, Inc. has been a refuge for homeless cats and dogs. We make a promise to any animal who comes through our gates: they will never be homeless again. We hope our residents will find a loving home with a lifelong companion or a loving family; but if they never find that home, they are welcomed into the EAR family. EAR is home to several hundred animals between our different locations. We have many adoptable animals as well as animals with varied medical or behavioral needs. No animal is euthanized due to medical expense or the inconvenience of care. While our main goal is to find a responsible home for our residents, we work hard to ensure all animals receive the level of care they need. Thanks to the help of our loyal staff and charitable volunteers, any animal can find a loving home here. We are always looking for compassionate people to donate their time and help us in our mission to care for our residents. In addition to being a sanctuary for the unwanted, ARI offers free or discounted emergency medical services. We offer a Crisis Intervention Program, which helps keep the human-animal bond intact by providing assistance to the elderly or infirm. We also offer low-cost spay and neuter clinics to the surrounding community and trap-neuter-release (TNR) clinics for feral cats. Most of our residents are rescued strays, as we offer solace to any creature who needs us. Over the years we have opened our home to mice, cows, chickens, pigs, turkeys, goats and geese. Every life, no matter how big or small, matters at EAR.
