Animal Rescue Coalition Welcomes New Staff Member and Enjoys Community Support

Sep 05, 2015 02:51AM

As Animal Rescue Coalition (ARC) recently said farewell to Dr. Jerry Edington, DVM, we welcomed Dr. Lisa Tipton, DVM, as our new Medical Director. We are fortunate to work with such an amazing and compassionate veterinarian. Dr. Tipton is a native of North Dakota and graduated from Iowa State University. She moved to Florida in 2006. She is enjoying the Florida sun with her husband, Gary, their children and their beloved pets. 


In addition, thanks to the support of our generous Emergency Medical Fund (EMF) donors, ARC has cared for countless animals rescued by Sarasota County Animal Services. They are stray, abandoned, injured, sick or abused animals who are adoptable but, without the medical treatment needed, are likely to be euthanized. With the help of EMF, however, they receive proper, are able to recover well and can be adopted by loving families. Please help us continue rescuing these sweet animals and allowing them to find forever homes.


Location: 6320 Tower Ln., Sarasota. To donate, visit For more information, call 941-957-1955 or email [email protected].
