Happy Birthday

We’re excited to announce that Linn County Animal Rescue celebrated its 15th birthday on January 29, 2023! LCAR couldn’t have made it this far without the support of our donors and volunteers and we’re eternally grateful for their contributions. Here’s to many more years of fulfilling our mission and helping animals in need.


The #BettyWhiteChallenge was created in 2022 to celebrate the wonderful Betty White and her lifelong commitment to animal welfare by encouraging individuals to support animal rescues, shelters and charities.

We’re kicking off the second annual #BettyWhiteChallenge and asking for your help in honoring her legacy of compassion and giving. Any donations made to LCAR in Betty’s honor will go directly toward providing the best possible care for our animals.

COVID-19 and Fundraising

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic in our country, LCAR’s fundraising efforts have been significantly hindered over the last two years. If you are able to help our rescue during this time, your donations would be so much appreciated by the volunteers and horses! Our Donations page has information on how you may help! Thank you for thinking of us and helping us “speak for those who can’t”!
