Rescue Partners are an essential part of Arlington Animal Services. These organizations assist the shelter in achieving the goal of helping as many animals as possible, without compromising public safety. These rescue partners have been verified and agreed to comply with the City of Arlington Uniform Criteria, pursuant to Article III, Section 3.05(B) of the City's Animal Ordinance. Rescue partners agree to have the animal vaccinated for rabies and will have the animal sterilized if it is not already, then provide proof of alteration to the Animal Services Kennel Manager.

If you are interested in becoming a rescue partner with the City of Arlington Animal Services, get more information on the Become an Adoption Placement Partner webpage.
