Celebrate 25 Years of Saving Lives
2016 june mad  

A stray cat ran onto a ball field in 1990, frantically searching for a way out until she hesitated at Tony La Russa’s feet. Somehow, she must have known he would keep her safe.

With an impact stretching far beyond what anyone could have imagined, Evie’s run alerted Elaine and Tony La Russa to the plight of homeless animals and the lack of no-kill shelters in Contra Costa County, California. With their dream - and a small group of dedicated people who cared - ARF was officially established a year later on June 14, 1991.

With the help of our friends, more than 33,000 dogs and cats have been saved since that inspiring moment on the ball field. Responding to their needs, we created programs offering hope, love, and healing to thousands of lives every year - benefiting pets and people alike in new and exciting ways.

In honor of all the animals and people whose lives have been changed, we thank you - our special friends - who have helped ARF reach this milestone, and we look forward with hope for the many more lives to be saved in the next 25 years.

Every gift, large or small, can save a life - will you celebrate 25 years of saving lives with your $25 gift today?
