Making a Difference: A Summer Tail

A Summer TailThe sound of small yips and puppy growls could be heard from the dog crate as the three scruffy balls of fur wrestled each other to be the first ones to the door. A little black and tan Terrier-mix wiggled her way past her littermates and leapt into the hands of ARF’s rescue team as soon as the door was sprung. Daisy was fragile, and so tiny she could be held cupped in two hands, but her big personality shimmered through her intelligent eyes. Her puppy kisses and direct gaze said more than human words ever could… thank you for saving my life. Read more…

Happy Tails: LaRussa

LaRussaA Perfect 10!
LaRussa, a sweet 2 year-old kitty with a soulful gaze, certainly has a reason to stop and smell the flowers. LaRussa has blossomed since finding her forever family, and they tell us having her in their life has been a home run. Her people trekked 425 miles to ARF looking for their perfect companion, and when they fell in love with a black and white kitty with a few extra toes she was “outta here”! Now LaRussa is basking in the glow of love from her new people. “She always has to be in the same room with us,” Mom Christina reports, “It’s so cute.” Read more adoption stories…

Pets In Hot Cars - Just Say No

On even a seemingly mild day, temperatures in a car can creep well over 100 degrees in a rapid amount of time, leaving your furry best friend in danger of developing heatstroke or even death. Planning on being gone for only a few minutes puts your pet in serious jeopardy. Want to know how you and your pet can keep cool this summer? Read more…
