Kitten Season is Upon Us
When spring rolls around, ARF’s focus is less on the arrival of baseball season and more on “major-league” kitten season! As winter subsides, a corresponding boom of cat births occur. And while the term “kitten season” may sound downright adorable, the reality of the situation is the opposite. The soaring numbers of young (oftentimes infant) cats places a strain on shelters as they rally to provide space, time, and resources needed to protect some of the most vulnerable lives in animal welfare. Stella and Luna are a perfect example of what ARF faces this time of year - a pair of precious kittens who, separated from their mother, would not have been able to survive on their own. Read more...
Walk as a Team at Animals on Broadway
Saturday, May 19
Everything is better with friends - furry and human! ARF invites you to team up with family, friends, coworkers, and other animal-lovers to take part in the annual pet walk kicking off Animals on Broadway. Create a team page and join forces to save the lives of animals in need. Additionally, team members who can’t be there in person are encouraged to register as virtual walkers. Sign your team up today and join hundreds of fellow ARF supporters in downtown Walnut Creek, CA at Animals on Broadway!
Pet Safety Net Keeps Pets in Homes
(and Out of Shelters)
The best home for a pet is typically one it already has. Surrounded by familiar settings and a loving family, this is where a cat or dog flourishes. But sometimes heartbreaking financial, behavioral or family circumstances force a family to give up their beloved pet. ARF is here to help. Our Pet Safety Net program assists qualifying families who need extra help keeping their pet out of a shelter. From behavior training, to fence repairs, to landlord issues, ARF is here to not only rescue animals from public shelters, but keep them from being surrendered in the first place. For more information on the Pet Safety Net, please visit our website or contact ARF’s Resource Center at (925) 256-1273.
