ARF Receives Animal Evacuees from Hurricane Irma's Path
9.11.17 Airplane  
ARF wasted no time jumping into action after an early-morning distress call. Humane Society of Broward County contacted ARF hoping we could receive their current adoptable animals prior to Hurricane Irma’s arrival and clear their shelter for post-storm rescue and owner-recovery operations. A little more than 48 hours later, a was plane secured, and 60 dogs and 92 cats landed in Northern California. The furry fliers evacuated Florida hours before Read more...
By “Clearing the Shelters,” ARF Fills Families with Love
Clear the Shelters  
ARF once again participated in NBC’s national “Clear the Shelters” campaign this year, but we put a new ARF twist on the event. Instead of just waiving adoption fees during the campaign weekend, we waived them for the entire week! The result was an overwhelming success with 84 dogs and cats finding their forever homes.

We were thrilled to host local NBC Bay Area’s news team at our Walnut Creek headquarters for an adoption preview and thank them for their support in encouraging pet adoptions. In addition to NBC’s support, we very much appreciate our partners at VCA, who generously contributed $3,000 to help offset adoption fees. Together, we are making a difference.
TWO California Wine & Whiskers Events this Fall
Wine and Whiskers  
Red or White? Dog or Cat? North or South? These are all questions you’ll ask yourself as we have TWO fabulous California Wine & Whiskers events scheduled this fall. Our Northern California event will be held Saturday, Sept. 23 at our Walnut Creek ARF Headquarters, while our Southern California event takes place on Saturday, Oct. 15 at The Beverly Hills Hotel.

Both events offer the opportunity to sample fabulous California wines, as well as items from our famous dog and cat themed martini bars. We have exciting silent auction items for both events so you can spot your perfect treasure, while supporting animal rescue and more.

Best of all, we’ll have adorable adoptables on site at both events to remind you exactly who all this fun benefits. Make your reservation for Walnut Creek and Beverly Hills now.
ARF’s Weekly Puppy Parties
Puppy Social  
It’s hard to overstate the importance of socializing your new puppy. Experiences from the first seven weeks to four months permanently shape a dog’s future personality. Many activities can be done at home, from showing off new sounds and smells to handling paws and teeth in preparation for future grooming. However, unless you have a personal network of young canines, it can be hard to find proper puppy playdates for socialization. ARF is here to help! Twice a week, we host “Puppy Socials” where your four-legged little guy or girl can play with other puppies and learn how to properly interact with other dogs. Supervised by the experts on our behavioral team, these play dates are not only fun and educational for pets, but provide a chance for owners to socialize as well. ARF’s Puppy Socials are held Thursdays at 5 pm and Sundays at 10 am. Sign your pup up today!
