Our interactive lessons can be experienced at ARF’s facility or in the classroom! Register your child's class for one of our classes, programs, or tours, or donate to the Humane Education Fund to ensure more children are able to experience our programs in 2013.

Happy Tails: AdmiralThings are shipshape in Admiral's new home! After the once-shy pup settled in with his new family, he set to work getting his AKC Canine Good Citizen certification and training to become a therapy dog. “We often talk about how special it was when we were first introduced to Admiral," says adopter Kristin. "We could not have asked for anything better!" Admiral's adoption fee was covered by ARF's Military & Veteran Pet Adoption Program which matches homeless pets with America's heroes. Read more adoption stories or help us waive adoption fees to support happy new beginnings like Admiral's!
