Making A Difference: Spay it Forward

Spay it ForwardIn the overnight drop box at the public shelter, five 4-week-old puppies cried out, wrapped in a towel and desperate for food and warmth. The note scrawled on the box was from their overwhelmed family who were not able to scrape together the money to spay their beloved Chihuahua mix. Unable to find homes for her unexpected puppies, they didn’t know what else to do. The sweet pups, in need of care far beyond what the crowded shelter could provide, were mere hours from being killed before ARF stepped in to save their lives. Read more…

Foster for ARF and Watch Love Grow

Foster for ARFIf you plan on being home for the holidays and have extra room in your heart, become a pet foster parent for ARF! We never take a break from saving lives, and rescue as many animals as we can. Our available foster pool dwindles when families leave town, making holiday fosters critical. We provide all the necessary supplies and take care of any medical expenses; you provide love and support for an animal in need. Foster Orientation is Saturday, October 27, from 10 a.m. - noon. at ARF’s campus. Once orientation is completed, you can immediately begin fostering and saving lives with ARF! Sign up today!

Happy Tails: Star

StarStar spent her ARF days shining bright, hoping someone would notice her stellar good looks and sparkling personality. She knew if she waited patiently, her time in the spotlight would come. Sure enough, an out-of-this-world family stepped in and soared off with her! Now known as Kiki the Kitten, she’s adjusted brilliantly to a new life full of luminous love from her devoted family, who adore playing “fetch” with her using little paper balls. Kiki and her family are on course to infinity - and beyond! Read more adoption stories…
