Greenville, SC – Arcadia Animal Rescue was recently selected as the beneficiary of charitable giving by the employees of global precision metal parts manufacturer, Stueken LLC.

A family business founded in 1931 by Hubert Stüken, social responsibility has always been at the core of the company’s values. “Every year at the holidays, we ask our employees to partner with us to support a local charity,” says Lorri Mercer, Human Resources Business Partner. “This year, we chose to support a group impacting the lives of animals in need in the surrounding community.”

In post-pandemic United States and abroad, animal shelters are experiencing an historical high volume of intake according to Aly Balan, volunteer and spokesperson for South Carolina-based Arcadia Animal Rescue. “So many people have been forced to give up their pets due to being displaced from their homes and the shelter systems are literally busting at the seams,” says Balan. “Without rescues like ours stepping up to the plate, animals are being euthanized solely for lack of space.”

In 2022 alone, Arcadia Animal Rescue was able to save the lives of well over 150 dogs and cats from high-volume shelters and in the community at large in South Carolina and beyond. “When the folks from Stueken LLC contacted us and said we had been selected for their yearly employee giving, we were beyond ecstatic because we had just taken in a large hoarding case of emaciated and sickly animals,” Balan says. “Since we rely solely on donations, we were in desperate need of supplies.”

At the end of December, to coincide with the holiday giving season, the employees at Stueken LLC collected all kinds of pet supplies, including food, blankets, toys, cleaning products, and other much-needed materials and presented them to the rescue’s volunteers. On the day of pick up, employees were able to meet some of the dogs currently in foster care whose lives were impacted by their generosity.

“It really was such a huge relief to know that we could start the new year off fully stocked and prepared to provide everything the animals in our care needed,” Balan added. “We are so grateful for the support of the folks at Stueken; we can’t do what we do without the partnership of our local community.”

People are encouraged to visit their local shelters and adopt. Or, anyone able to foster, adopt, volunteer, or sponsor/donate to help more animals in need, please contact the rescue at [email protected].


Arcadia Animal Rescue is a foster-based rescue comprised of volunteers who are dedicated to saving the lives of animals that are at-risk either in shelters or in our communities, and placing them into safe and loving foster or adoptive homes. As a 501c3 organization that receives no federal funding, we rely on the generosity of donors in order to provide life-saving veterinary care, spay and neuter, behavioral assessments and modification, emergency boarding, and transport to foster/adoptive homes.
