Thankful for You

Dana is Thankful“Would you like to meet Dana?” the shelter staff asked. “ARF is her last chance.”

Her expressive golden eyes looked deeply into ours from behind the bars of her kennel. When we opened the door, the beautiful pit bull mix stepped out calmly and placed her paws on the lap of the ARF team member, reaching out to nuzzle her neck and give gentle kisses. She was everything anyone could want in a companion affectionate, trusting, and full of love. She had come a long way since she had first arrived at the public shelter, but week after week visitors walked past her until ARF arrived on her very last day.

ARF Thrift Store Get your holiday shopping started now at the ARF Thrift Store! Our volunteers can’t wait to help you pick out the perfect “little something” for everyone on your list...especially because all Thrift Store purchases benefit the ARF Emergency Medical Fund®. If you’re cleaning out your closets in preparation for the holidays, spread cheer by donating your gently used clothing, furniture, and household items!

Holiday Pet Food Drive

Holiday Pet Food Drive ARF believes no one should ever have to choose between feeding their pets and feeding themselves, especially during the holiday season. Help keep pets in their homes by bringing your donation of unopened, unexpired wet or dry cat and dog food to ARF November 29 through January 10. Pet food donations will be distributed through the Salvation Army’s Concord facility to help struggling pet guardians provide for their furry family members. Find out how you can help! 


Happy Tails: Gracie

Happy Tails: Gracie “When I first saw Gracie (right), I instantly fell in love with her cute, fuzzy face, but had no idea what a gem she would be! She’s still a bit shy, but she rules the house and neighborhood! Her big brother thinks she’s the best present we ever gave him. They love the same games, especially tearing up stuffed animals, roughhousing, and tag. She is always close by, demanding very little attention, but always ready for cuddles and tummy rubs. Her tail is thumping every morning, so I know she’s happy. I’m so glad she’s mine. She’s the perfect dog for me!” Read more adoption stories...
