arcBARKS are all natural dog bones made by special hands right here in the Triad. 

Greensboro --  Pets are very important to many people.  Did you remember them on your Christmas list?  If not, no problem!  arcBARKS are your answer!

arcBARKS Doggie Treat Company is owned and operated by members of The ARC of Greensboro.  Talented men and women with intellectual and developmental disabilities bake and sell the all natural dog bones as a year-round fundraiser.  It gives them independence and a chance to contribute to the community in a meaningful way.
