Bark for The Arc

Thank you for making the 2021

Annual Bark For The Arc

Art Auction a Success!

The Arc is a nonprofit organization committed to empowering Central Texans with intellectual and developmental disabilities through compassionate case management and innovative programs. The Arc’s Art Education Program assists clients in exploring artistic mediums and creating gorgeous artwork. Our Annual Bark for The Arc Event features our partners in dog therapy, Divine Canines.

Divine Canines was formed in 2004 by a group of dog lovers who wanted to share the unconditional love of dogs with people in special needs facilities in Central Texas. We began with five dog-and-handler teams, one large client – the Austin State Hospital – and a professional dog trainer who generously donated his time. We now have approximately 110 active dog-handler teams who visit more than 120 facilities and thousands of children, adults and elderly persons on a regular basis.
