Kitten Odd Couple Proved the Purrfect Match
The Odd Couple  
Oscar and Felix. The Blues Brothers. Ernie and Bert. The clown and straight guy make great comedy, and at times, great cat pairings! Cash came to us as an extremely shy kitten. After watching his sister and several roommates get adopted, he became reluctant to interact. Along came Swift, an “enthusiastic” kitten - so much that his own littermates found him a bit much. It seemed like an odd match, but our behavior team had a hunch this could be magic. Read more...

Ivy Makes an Astonishing Transformation
Ivy's Transformation  
This labradoodle made her way to ARF in rough shape. Shaking with fear, her fur was matted and flea-infested. But we saw an affectionate and beautiful dog waiting to come out. After a medical exam and much-needed TLC, Ivy was ready for the big step: adoption! She immediately found a loving home that included a poodle brother and playmate. Instantly smitten, Ivy’s adopter told us his first thought seeing her was, “Sweetie, you are going with us. I'm not letting you stay in a shelter one minute longer than you have to." This year, we witnessed thousands of transformations like Ivy’s, all thanks to supporters like you! Check out just some of those happy stories in our latest video.
