Mission

Our Mission

Animal Rescue Team exists to support and provide quality animal rescue, treatment, rehabilitation, and release to ALL sick, injured, orphaned and displaced animals in accordance with current standards in the field.

Educating the public about the needs of at risk wildlife, and the needs of animal care and protection.
Promoting efficient use of community animal/wildlife support resources by cooperating with other organizations and individuals in order to fulfill our mission……

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife does not do wildlife rehabilitation. The Department licenses properly trained and experienced wildlife rehabilitators who do the actual work. Wildlife rehabilitators rescue ill, injured and orphaned wildlife for release back to the wild. All wildlife rehabilitators are volunteers who must pay for permits, cages, food, veterinary care… to rescue the animals. Wildlife rehabilitators receive no money or compensation from the Department or state to care for these animals.

Maintaining integrity, openness, respect, and cooperation within our organization and in all of our outreach efforts.

All A.R.T. Inc. rescues are treated by Dr. Sheri MacVeigh D.V.M. and Dr. Heather Skogersen D.V.M. of Solvang Veterinary Hospital. 2025 Mission Drive, Solvang, CA 93463. (805) 688-6484.
