FeLV+ Kittens Need Love Too!

They're cute as a button! They're as social as can be! But four scary letters are keeping them from finding the loving homes they deserve: F-e-L-V.

Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) is an infectious disease that affects about 2-3% of cats. While not contagious for dogs, humans, or other non-feline animals, cats that have tested positive FeLV are contagious to other cats who have not had a protective vaccination. Due to its effects on the immune system, cats with progressive FeLV have a shorter life expectancy. But at heart, they are just like any other kitties - happy, playful, and ready to bring joy to a new household.

That takes us to ARF's adorable litter of FeLV+ kittens, Dawn, Eve, Twilight, and Star. Read more...

Campaign for Pets and Vets Reaches Goal

We're pleased to announce the Campaign for Pets and Vets surpassed all expectations and came to a successful close. This $18.7 million effort saw unprecedented support with 19,800+ donors making 59,350 gifts in just over two years to benefit all of ARF's animal programs, with the centerpiece being the new Pets and Vets Center and animal care expansion.

Thank you to everyone who made a gift to this campaign. Your enduring investment creates new optimism and opportunities as ARF expands Pets and Vets nationally to reach more veterans and animals in need in the years to come. We look forward to celebrating the new Center opening with you in Fall 2020.
