This is truly one of the great animal rescues out there. They tirelessly save these animals and carefully place them in safe, loving homes. They heal, love and stretch their money wisely to do the most good possible. I do not give lightly, but to them I give regularly. They are my charity of choice.
I've been following ARA, and a few other rescues, on Facebook for quite some time as I was wanting to add to our pack of Senior Sibes. When Kiba (12) appeared on the ARA page, I instantly knew he was meant to join us. I communicated with ARA for nearly 3 months about Kiba, and the stars finally aligned and he's been with us for a month now. My experience with ARA, and Penelope in particular, was very positive. They feel like family and we keep in touch with regular updates.
Special people open up their hearts and homes for the more challenging of our rescued huskies. Thank you for taking our senior boy with a torn ACL and a feisty attitude. We are always here for you and Kiba.
Alley and Penelope are awe-inspiring, the work they do is truly amazing and from the heart. I adopted my husky from them earlier this year and I must say the level of care and hard work they put into their rescue is without equal. Im so grateful to them.
Welcome to our family Antony. Thank you for reviewing your adoption experience, we appreciate it.
We have adopted two beautiful huskaroos from ARA. What an amazing rescue, and alley is always there whenever we need anything or have any concerns.
Thank you for opening your home to our rescued huskies.

This group of loving hearts who save so many rocks :~) ❤️
I love ARA, Alley, and the hard work they do saving these beautiful dogs. This is a job they do from sun up until sundown and beyond. My girl Ember would not be here without the ARA team and their love for these babies. ARA has created a close knit group of people who know one another by our rescued dogs. ARA informs, educates and updates their community of supporters with stories of our dogs long after adoption. The dogs adopted from ARA are not just adopted by their immediate family, but also by a large group of supporters from across the country via the ARA FB page . I met these people over 2 years ago. I am fortunate to also call them neighbors, as we live within close proximity to their ranch. Their kennels, yards (and home) are Immaculate; and the great care they take for these beautiful dogs is unsurpassed. Alley through her commitment and "dogged" determination, is the glue that keeps this rescue and network alive. I am a proud supporter and occasional volunteer who has seen first hand what they do for our beloved dogs. ARA and their team are the pack leaders when it comes to rescues. As a dog lover and rescue supporter my entire life, I am truly honored to be affiliated with ARA.
Alleys is absolutely the best! We got our boy Hilux a few years ago and just recently went back to get him a sister, little miss saki. They are the best kids we could ever ask for! Alley and her team are amazing, they take all the medical cases and do everything they can to save huskies from the high kill shelter in southern california. If it weren't for alleys, we would never have our perfect husky family :)
I've adopted two huskies from this rescue and have found them to be the most caring of the canines they rescue. Post adoption with this rescue is fabulous. They love to get updates and show genuine concern about the huskies. They always want the best for those rescued. This is the only rescue I recommend. Love ARA Canine Rescue ❤️
We adopted our sweet Ransom from this rescue. Alley and her volunteers are amazing and EVERYTHING they do is for the dogs and no one else. Her integrity is above any other rescue i know. Every penny donated goes to these dogs that are saved from death row at the shelter. Cannot say enough about this great rescue!!
I am an adopter and donor. Great rescue, great people. All the funds go towards rescuing the dogs and medical care. Very good customer service towards the adopters.

Amazing rescue, full of amazing committed people. You can really see the love they have for these sweet babies, and they are absolutely head over heels for their dogs, and they always make a commitment to finding the perfect home.
Simply the best. They go above and beyond. Always there for the huskies and the people adopting them.
Thank you Elaine. We appreciate your support
This rescue is the best of the best. Two of our dogs are ARA girls. We love knowing that Alley is willing to give a 2nd chance to the dogs with medical issues that might be normally over looked by other rescues like our girl Koda who had both front legs severely injured after being hit by a car.
Thank you fro being part of the ARA family and taking the time to review your experience with ARA
This is the BEST RESCUE we have ever encountered, dealt with, experienced and have had the privilege of adopting from. We will continue to support Alley's Rescued Angel's 100%. This incredibly dedicated rescue pours their hearts and souls into the care and welfare of every dog that comes into their organization with most being the worst and most expensive medical cases. Alley's Rescued Angel's ROCK!
Thank you for your support and kind words. We really do our best for these dogs.
Wonderful second chances for injured and abandoned dogs. Medical and training to prepare Siberians for new families. Well described histories of the rescued dogs, where possible, and great attention to follow up stories of placed dogs that touch the heart and encourage others of consider adoption. Very creative fund raising events. I look forward to ongoing updates from ARA about their successes, their challenges and sometimes their losses. Alley and the fosters use comedy well in their reports, and often use the dog voice for messages to readers. We learn of the hardwork involved, but never sense despair of unwillingness to overcome setbacks such as the recent widespread damage to the ranch by high winds.
I feel very connected to ARA and am happy to learn they are also working with a rescue in Canada to expand opportunities to find good forever homes for the Siberians. The group is very responsible in highlighting characteristics of this magical breed that prospective adopters should consider and stressing the need for love and care. I am impressed by the number of adopters who return to adopt a second or third Siberian to add to their first ARA husky.
What a wonderful and comprehensive review of our nonprofit. Thank you so much for your support.
The Huskey receive love and top notch care while they are with the Rescue. So fortunate that our Angel was found wondering the streets injured. Angel was taken to the rescue and,received love and care that is why she is gentle loving huskey. Thank you alleys rescue
Thank you Cassie
Ara is amazing I got my male husky Dakota from Alley and the second I met alley I was very impressed between the ranch and how she interacts with the animals. To this day almost a year later I still stay in contact with her. ARA is absolutely the best rescue around you can tell how much the animals are loved and cared for. Unlike some places they just leave them in kennels and don't give them attention. I definitely will come back and rescue another fur baby soon enough and most definitely recommend Ara
Thank you for being part of our rescue family and taking the time to say such nice things in your review. We are always here for you.
The work done by Ara Canine Rescue is very highly respected in the Husky world. Wonderful people doing wonderful work!
Thank you for your support and kind words Susan.
There are no words to express my gratitude and love for this rescue. Alley, along with all the hands in this rescue have been a God-send for so many huskies in need; including my boy, Nemo. I am not local, but I make the trip every year to help ARA with the OC Pet Expo and I couldn't be more proud to help represent them. They have forever changed my life, and opened my eyes to the world of rescue. I can't thank them enough for the wonderful job they do in the often, depressing and exhausting role as rescuers. They truly are angels!
Thank you Nicole for your dedication to ARA, we appreciate it.
Quite possibly THE greatest Husky rescue in the state of California.
Top of the line rescue! They do Amazing Work saving huskies in California.
Great organization saving an intelligent, feisty, beautiful, lovable, warmhearted breed! You are making a difference!
ARA is a fabulous origination. They are known for taking the medical cases, which most rescues shy away from due to the expense. Alley's huskies (and "honorary huskies") are treated like royalty, and I am proud to donate to the rescue whenever I can.
ARA is simply the BEST! Alley and her volunteers are so great and caring! They rescued "Dasha" now Elsa from the pound. Her previous owner debarked her. They cared for her and got her checked out with their local vet. She was underweight when they rescued her and in need of love and attention. They nursed her in a foster home. She had the best treatment and love there. She gained her weight back. I found this organization at the Pet Expo in Costa Mesa, CA in 2014. We adopted Dasha aka Elsa at the event and she has been a great addition to our family. Alley is very knowledgeable, caring and is always there if you have questions or need emotional support too. She makes you feel that you are part of the family. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone interested in adopting or helping huskies. They are non-profit and everything goes to taking care of these loving dogs; many in need of medical care, some which is very expensive. They are reputable and trustworthy.
She brought her heart and asked our community for help to save my ALPINE. She gave him six months of continued life until the cancer ultimaately took him. He had a burger and a shake, thanks to Alley, and re rested and was escorted with full hearts and love to the bridge. There could not have been a better way to go. Alley, I would be honored if you are there when it's my turn. You truly are an angel.
My Husky was rescued by my son and his girlfriend from Pasadena Humane Society. They were living in a house at the time. When they moved to an apartment, they had to consider re-homing him. I offered my home. Within 1 year, Alpine had developed a tumor in his snout/mouth and it was becoming increasingly difficult for him to eat or even breathe. I took him to ARK Animal Hospital here in Victorville, CA. They performed dental surgery to remove rotted and affected teeth. Upon the 3rd or 4th visit, it was becoming clearer that there was not much else we could do for this poor suffering dog. That's when it happened. While waiting outside with my son, his girlfriend and my eldest daughter, a lady came out and inquired (Alley) what's up with our dog. She runs a Husky rescue and had never encountered one with a tumor in his mouth like that. He looked almost like a cartoon wolf character. We spoke for a couple of minutes and back she went to her business and we to ours. After meeting with a doctor whom assured us that he would not make it to Christmas, we returned home to determine a course of action. Bleak...
I decided to look up this ARA (Alley) on facebook that night to update her on the outcome of our doctor visit. She replied immediately and asked if I would meet her back at the hospital the next day. Happy to say, she not only saved this dogs life with the funds and unwavering concern for Alpine and his family, she has taught us a valuable lesson. If you do not communicate with someone, no one knows what you are going through. If you do, somtimes little miracles happen.
My son is engaged to his wonderful gal. We at home are all amazed and very happy.
Ally is amazing. I have a husky and know what it takes to care for these pups. She has patience and so much love in her heart. She takes the cases that other rescued won't touch. I'm proud to support an organization that does such good work
Amazing rescue ethical and saves beautiful animals from the breeding crisis in Soithern California. Very highly regarded by shelters, rescuers, and dog lovers.
Alley's Rescued Angels rescues many Huskies with medical needs from shelters who otherwise would not have a chance at adoption. They then work with local vets to rehabilitate them until they are ready to be adopted to families. We adopted our Husky mix Asha from Alley's Rescued Angels. She had been hit by a car and then dumped at the Baldwin Park shelter in LA with a broken pelvis and not much of a chance if it wasn't for Alley. We have the utmost respect for their integrity and the work they do.
This is a great organization that does a great job. I love my husky and appreciate the good people that take care of others like her. I understand how hard they are to take care of, but I wish people would find good homes instead of just let them go. Thank you for all you do. :)
I Did tons of research before rescuing our Husky Timber from ARA - they are the best, we have since then, rescued our second Ajax and have fostered for them as well! Alley is great, and makes sure that each and every fur baby she serves, finds just the right forever home!
We are privileged to know Alley and her team for over two years now. She brought joy into our lives - TWICE! we did a lot of research when we lost our first two huskies. To find the right fit, and the right rescue. ARA was it for us! we went to visit the ranch and we were sold. She takes (and her team, but mostly Alley) such great and personal care of these dogs that often times would not have a second chance in life. Makes sure she has the best medical team in place, researches the homes the dogs go to and she has even helped out a few "imposters" I own one of those too! We have rescued two dogs from this organization, and we wouldn't be the same without them. When you adopt from ARA you become part of this great family - FUREVER!
We got our two husky puppies from Alley, they helped us understand what we were getting ourselves into and made sure that we were not making a light hearted commitment to a breed of dog that demands a lot from their owners.
Nearly three years on Shadow and Koda are wonderful dogs and a firm part of our family.
I highly recommend Alley for anyone interested in Husky adoptions
Amazing rescue. We adopted our sweet boy Koda from Alley in December of 2014, one of the best decisions of my life. Koda was from a riverside shelter before he was saved by the wonderful team at ARA. When we came to look at him we could see he had been very well taken care of and Alley had such a terrific manner with all the dogs. In the past year she has taken in countless dogs who otherwise wouldn't have stood a chance (many of them medical rescues) and given them a fresh start. I will forever be grateful to this wonderful organization
Alley and Ara Canine Rescue are top notch and extremely kind. She and her organization take in huskies that are in distress, comfort them, and then find them caring forever homes. The number of medical needs that this organization covers is amazing, and these huskeroos have a new lease on life due to this organization. Simply the best!
We were introduced to Alley a few years ago when we adopted Maverick. We have been a devoted fan and donor ever since. ARA takes amazing care of these dogs and spends endless time to help them. We are true fans and will continue to support their cause!
ARA is the truest form of charity I've ever come in contact with. Alley devotes her time, home, money, heart and soul to this cause. We adopted two huskies from her nearly a year ago now and have followed her updates ever since. At the time we adopted, Alley went above and beyond for our puppies. We only hope to be able to pay the kindness we received back to her and the organization some day. She is an extraordinary human being.
We adopted our Maya from Alley in April of 2014. You could really tell that she really has a heart for the pups. It was a wonderful experience.
ARA operates with the highest integrity, responsibility and loving compassion.
Huskies are an amazing but also time consuming pet to have and not everyone can handle to responsibility of having one. That's where ARA Canine Rescue steps in and helps those huskies who are abandoned in shelters and show them they are worth loving. Keep up the great work. My husky, Loki and I appreciate everything you do for this amazing breed. Thank you
This rescue goes above and beyond to take in medical cases and dogs that would otherwise be euthanized. They also understand the nature of Nordic breeds and educate potential adopters about what to expect, which is very important. Many Northern dogs end up in shelters because people think they are pretty but don't understand that they also howl, dig, escape, eat furniture, etc. I would not have any other breed, but you have to be the right kind of person to be a match for a Nordic dog!! Kudos to a great rescue!! So glad you do what you do.
This rescue has changed my life. I adopted both of my babies from ARA and have become a lifetime supporter of these wonderful people. They aren't just rescuers, they are healers and angels for these dogs and for those of us who have been blessed enough to adopt through them.
I absolutely can not believe that one review that was left calling this organization a joke. This rescue is a godsend. Alley is the hardest working woman I know and ARA has become one of the most adored and trusted rescues. I've SEEN her miracle stories and every last penny ever donated goes straight to these beautiful huskies. They even go and rescue other breeds from time to time because let's face it big hearts don't discriminate against fur babies. I've adopted both of my huskies (Maximus and Minnie) from this rescue and will never look anywhere else. These people are ANGELS and a team of beautiful souls dedicated to making a difference.
I support Alley and her team with a monthly donation. I have also given larger amounts for specific cases. Alley takes so many pups in that other rescues would turn away because of the medical costs. I consider her rescue to be one of the best int he country. I live in NH but when I adopt another husky, I will work to get her from ARA. The hearts of the ARA team are the biggest in the world!
ARA is a wonderful organization that works countless hours to save as many dogs as possible. I admire their dedication and the love they show to all of their rescues! ♡♡♡
I love this rescue! They take on the hardest cases that many rescues turn away. They pull huskies from local shelters that are on death row and give them a second chance. They help our community out tremendously. The owner is wonderful and has a heart of pure gold! Can not say enough about this husky rescue!!
Absolutely love this rescue . ARA goes above and beyond for these dogs. More than any other rescue i know. I will never buy from a breeder again and all my dogs are fixed thanks to ARA and Alley! Lifelong supporter of this rescue
They are an awesome rescue and have made so many wonderful fur babies - happy!!!
amazing rescue, ally and her crew are awesome who care about the huskies, and do any thing to save them. Ally and her crew are true angels from heaven.
Amazing rescue! Adopted my husky Hunter from ARA. Alley truly cares about all the dogs and places them in the best homes that fit the husky and the family! So glad she saved our boy from being euthanized at the shelter! Best experience ever!
A truly awesome rescue.
Anyone who loves Siberians needs to check this one out. Alley takes in so many Sibes that no one else will. Many of her rescues are medical cases that require surgery and extensive vet care. Alley is truly an angel to these Siberians and without her many would not be alive and in loving homes today.
And though this is a Siberian Rescue Alley has stepped up for other breeds in need as well.
I have supported ARA Canine Rescue Inc. for years and can say without reservation they have to be one of, if not the, best rescues. Alley of ARA truly cares about the huskies in her charge and makes certain that all medical attention the dog needs is provided by a veterinarian. I've seen her rescue dogs with Parvo and Distemper and her and the many supporters of ARA rally to raise the funds and the volunteers to do everything possible to get the dogs back to health and ready for adoption. I cannot say enough about this rescue. It simply is FANTASTIC and I urge everyone to please support ARA to the fullest extent possible. You will quickly learn what a dedicated and loving rescue is all about!
5 Stars all the way, Alley of ARA is truly an angel for these huskies.
We adopted our incredible husky boy Bandit from ARA last year after losing our previous dog in a tragic car accident. The experience has been such a wonderful one for us, and we adore Bandit to bits. We keep in touch with ARA regularly, and his ARA foster mom (and ARA board member) still asks about him all the time, and loves seeing him as we live close by. These people LOVE their huskies, and would do anything for them. I cannot recommend ARA enough to anyone looking to add a wonderful dog to their family. It's an amazing organization run by people who truly devote their lives to these beautiful husky souls. Thank you ARA for bringing our beloved Bandit into our lives
I got my blind husky from this amazing rescue. Alley saved her the day she was supposed to be euthanized. She has been a blessing to us all. I love this rescue more than i can put into words. The medical cases she takes on every day just blowsy mind. She works so hard every day for these dogs. This rescue is herofe and she is very proud of it.
We were privileged to be able to work with Alley. We rescued our baby Abby from her and it was the easiest, smoothest process. Alley was so sweet and got back to us right away after initial contact. From there, we met with Abby twice and were in love! My husband and I will always be grateful to Alley for bringing us our baby girl. Thank you Alleys Angels!
We got both of our husky kids from ARA canine rescue and they are like our children. We love them so much, they have made our life to get more memorable and fulfilling. The rescue is awesome and really care about there dogs and who adopts them. We have made new lasting friends with them. Anytime we have questions or need anything they are there for us. They are professions at what they do and most of all they have dedicated there life to these fur balls and after getting to of then me and my wife have done the same. I wish I can get a third husky but it might get overwhelming and these doggies deserve the right attention because they deserve it. Thank you alley and Penelope.
WONDERFUL rescue! ARA saves over 200 Sibs each year from several different shelters in the SoCal area. If you are looking for a great rescue to adopt your husky from - look no further!!
My husband is a disabled marine. We got our husky Iceman six months before he was medically retired. He is been one of best dogs I've ever had. He is very calm, house trained, and it extremely well with our son who was only a year and a half old at the time. You since then shown service dog qualities and then a very good protection dog. If we ever get another husky we will definitely come back to ARA even though we aren't even in the same state anymore. Allie and her staff continuously amaze me. I have never seen a better rescue in my life.
My rescued husky was dealing with massive swelling in his snout. This swelling was first thought to be an infection so we got our money together and had four teeth pulled in surgery. When this did nothing to help the swelling we went back to vet for more answers. Funds were tight and we knew we could not afford any more surgery for the pup but hoped antibiotics would maybe do something to help since the swelling was interfering with his eating and quality of life. While waiting outside of the vets office a woman walked by and asked about him and asked to be kept in the loop since she had not seen swelling that bad before. After talking to the vet we were told that it was an aggressive inoperable cancer that would continue to cause discomfort and force us to put him down within a couple of weeks. When we reached out to Alley and gave her the update she said that it was not good enough. She got on the phone with the owner of the vet, rescheduled an appointment and came in with us. Alley took over all of our vet bills (including pain management for months) and stuck with us every step of the way. After a discussion we all decided that we should try a "nothing to lose" surgery. This Woman saved my dogs life! Alley paid for two exploratory surgeries and all of the medications and biopsies. My husky is now has NO cancer and he can eat comfortably again (up 8 pounds within the first week or so). Even after all of this Alley has continued to pay for everything! My family donates as much as we can and as often as we can for this cause. If there is anyone who is deserving of help it is her and her rescue. These people have made a difference in our lives that is hard to put into words. Again, this was not one of Alley's rescues, this was a husky rescued from a shelter that Alley had not responsibility for. There was nothing in it for her to help but she decided that our pup deserved another chance. As a rescue that takes in hundreds of dogs and has to deal with their vet and food bills, to take on another dog that was never theirs it truly amazing.
image for those who wish to see how she has impacted our lives! (he looked even worse than the picture lets on, and he looks even better than it show as well!)
AMAZING rescue, this rescue saves many siberians lives, the old, the sick and the injured. Alley of ARA IS AN ANGEL
ARA canine rescue is biggest joke! If you get involved with these people it will be you worst nightmare! Run far far away from these people! They lie about their rescue stories to con people to get donations. Not as many people want to donate for a shelter dog as they do for a abused dog. If you want to keep your sanity, stay away from this group!
