Join the Fall Fun at Wine and Whiskers
September 28: save the date! Join us at our Walnut Creek headquarters for Wine and Whiskers - a spectacular evening of specialty drinks, great food, Pet Hug Pack therapy dogs, and some of the cutest puppies and kittens you’ll ever see.
Proceeds from Wine & Whiskers support ARF’s life-saving programs, including adoption/rescue efforts, affordable spay/neuter services, humane education, and more. This annual event will sell out, so don’t miss your chance to attend the fall’s most exciting shindig! More information on tickets or sponsorship opportunities can be found on our website.
Keet Bounces Back, Better than Ever
Abandoned in a suburban East Bay business park, nine-week-old Keet was in rough shape when ARF found her. Every breath was wheezed through the constricted lungs of an upper respiratory infection. Her soft fur and perky ears were teeming with fleas and mites. Gastrointestinal irritation had made it almost impossible for her to put on weight. And on top of it all, her right eye was bulging, swollen, and painful, the aftermath of some sort of physical trauma. But when ARF staff picked her up, Keet’s rumbling purr filled the air, as if she knew she was finally safe.
Fostering the Future Service Dogs of Pets and Vets

The dogs of ARF's Pets and Vets program may be destined for futures as service animals, but they often come from humble beginnings. Before being paired with a veteran to begin their training, almost every one has spent time in an ARF foster home. Their time in the foster program gives them a chance to recuperate from injury or sickness, but also provides our team with a closer look at their future in-home behavior. 

ARF's talented foster network does fantastic work, but we're always looking for new families who who are interested in donating their time and love to ARF animals. For more information, or to sign up for a foster orientation, visit the foster page on our website.
