The wreaths are made from real Douglas Fir boughs to add that festive feel to your holiday decorations. DIY wreaths are $45. The wreath itself is pre-assembled, you do the decorating! If you prefer to have the whole wreath decorated for you, the cost is $60.

Walk for animals

Raise money for the ARC with resQwalk

Resqwalk is a mobile app that enables you to raise money for homeless animals and earn prizes every time you go for a walk.

How it works

Each week ResQwalk announces a donation pool (e.g. $2,500) and in order for a rescue to receive donations from the pool, its supporters simply need to check-in to the app when they go for a walk. resQwalk supports animal rescues in the United States and Canada.Your distance is tracked and added to the rescue's total. At the end of the week, each rescue receives a proportion of the weekly pool based on the miles logged for each rescue.

In our first week on the app, supporters walked 314km for D'Arcy's ARC. The more you walk, the more we raise, so grab your dog (or just yourself) and head for a walk using the app. Heck, grab a friend and double up the kilometers! Share your walk on Facebook or Twitter and let others know how easy it can be to help make a difference in the life of a homeless pet.
