You Can Save Lives for 60 Cents a Day

RamonWe first noticed Ramon’s golden eyes looking deeply into ours from the shadowed corner of the cage at the public shelter. The handsome young cat spotted ARF’s rescue team and stretched toward us, purring insistently for attention. His beautiful eyes were watery and his nose congested from a respiratory infection – a symptom of living in a shelter constantly overrun with cats and lacking medical resources. Even his discomfort couldn’t dampen his sweet, charming personality...and we couldn’t leave him behind. Read more...


Canine Courage

Is your child or young teen afraid of dogs? ARF wants to help kids who are hesitant around hounds learn to feel safe with Canine Courage, a free class for kids ages 5-14. Kids will learn to understand how dogs communicate their various feelings, look for signs of a dog's body language, and build courage so they can enjoy safe and positive interactions with man’s best friend. At the end of the session, students can interact with a calm, safe member of ARF’s Pet Hug Pack and practice their new skills. Classes are ongoing - register for the next session online!


Happy Howl-o-ween from ARF

Boo! The spookiest time of year for humans doesn’t have to be so scary for our animal friends. ARF’s Top 10 Safety Tips for Halloween will explain which treats are dangerous for dogs and cats, help you pet-proof your hair-raising home decor, and ensure your pet’s creepy costume is comfortable and safe for them to wear. Avoid the real scares and give your pets the safest possible “howl-o-ween” ever!
