Joann Finds Her Safe Haven
At only four months old, a kitten named Joann had already been through the unimaginable. On a warm summer night, someone sealed her in a cardboard box without food or water and abandoned her outside a shelter. Luckily, she was found in time, although dehydrated, scared, and extremely stressed. Her young trust broken, ARF staff knew beyond physical needs, Joann’s trust in humans must be reinforced as well.

Our Pets and Vets program recently received some well-deserved recognition from The story, launched in celebration of September’s Service Dog Awareness Month and the Purina® Dog Chow® Service Dog Salute, features Marine Corps veteran Michael and his ARF-rescued service dog, Zoe. Read the article and watch the video of this inspiring pair here.
Extra Love for the Holidays
School just started, but winter break is right around the corner. Winter holidays provide a great time for your family to give through fostering an animal before adoption. Fostering often provides some extra socialization for a young animal or a calm recovery space for an animal recuperating from illness or surgery. It even counts toward community service hours for many students. We offer in-person and online foster orientations. Sign up now and fulfill an adoptable dog or cat's holiday wish!
