Racing to Their Rescue
may 2016 mad paws  
Last week’s rescue run to one of our partner shelters started like many others - rows of dogs and cats hopefully peering out at us from behind the bars of their cages, litters of kittens needing care, wiggly puppies full of life and needing love. But this rescue run quickly turned extraordinary when the shelter workers informed us they critically needed immediate help in placing a very large number of animals, hoping to save them from a desperate fate. ARF sprang into action - working round the clock and traveling hundreds of miles, rescuing an astounding 97 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens in just two days! Read more...

Pet Tip: Keep Kittens With Mom
may 2016 kittens  
Kitten season has arrived nationwide, with waves of tiny, delicate newborns arriving at animal shelters daily. Many kittens are turned in to shelters by well-meaning people who thought they were abandoned by their mama, but that might not always be the case. If you find a litter of newborn kittens, wait to see if mom returns - she might be hunting for food, or spooked by an unfamiliar presence. Only remove the kittens if she doesn’t return after a few hours or if they are in immediate danger. Remember: keeping kittens with their mother offers them the best chance of survival. Learn more in ARF’s Pet Care & Behavior Library.
