Open Arms Rescue of WNY is a small, grass roots type of rescue group centralized in Akron, NY. We do not have a shelter, instead, we are completely foster-based to give our rescues the best chance at rehabilitation by learning to live in a home atmosphere. Our core group is comprised of all volunteer, non-paid members who have years of animal and rescue experience. Our volunteers include a certified dog trainer, local business owners, community members and loving foster families who all share a common goal. Our mission is to rescue dogs of all breeds and ages from either local surrender situations or shelters to place them into loving forever homes. We are a 100% pro spay/neuter rescue. OARWNY is a non-profit charity with federal 501c3 status funded solely on donations and fundraising.
