Making a Difference: Big Love

Big LoveThe gangly speckled pup stretched her neck forward to deliver a bashful kiss to her rescuer’s face. We carried her four sisters into ARF’s shelter behind her, holding them tightly as silky ears brushed our cheeks. Their sweet Labrador mother greeted her pups with nuzzles as we coaxed their father – a thin but majestic Great Dane – inside with treats and gentle coos. Tucking them in after the long journey, we were rewarded with deep, grateful gazes – heartfelt thanks for our labor of love to bring this family to safety, together.  Read more...

Happy Tails: Bella and Minnie

Minnie and BellaThe Sherwood family wasn't sure what Bella's reaction would be when they adopted a kitten after five years as the only pet! But it was cross-species love at first sight, and new kitty Minnie soon had Bella playing like a puppy and snuggling up for naps. Now the happy household is complete with not one, but two ARF alumni...and they're a match made in heaven! Read more adoption stories.
