Arctic Rescue Victoria Inc.

Hello! We’re Arctic Rescue Victoria Inc. (ARV), a small group of volunteers based in Melbourne. We rescue, rehabilitate and rehome Akitas, Huskies, Malamutes, Samoyeds and other Arctic breeds in need.

Foster heroes needed

You CAN help save a life today

Sponsor a Dog

Your donation goes towards helping all the dogs in our care, to fund the essentials such as bedding, food, equipment, training, vaccinations, desexing, worming and any other veterinary treatment they need.  Thank you for your support! 

Do your research

Bringing a dog into your life can be a wonderful and rewarding experience, but can also be challenging, so please think carefully before you choose the breed that is going to join your family. We have a range of resources to help you decide.
