Tiny Kitten, Big World

It's a big world out there for a kitten — especially one as tiny as Drumstick. Found at just five weeks old, she was dirty, smelly, and completely alone. But most notably, Drumstick weighed in at only 0.56 pounds — less than half of what a kitten her age should be. In fact, this tiny gal was so small that she often chose to sit inside her food bowl while eating, resulting in some very messy meals (pictured).

Kittens this small and frail are especially vulnerable to illness. Additionally, Drumstick was discovered to have more health issues that would need addressing. ARF's experienced foster network and talented veterinary staff were ready to help her thrive. Read more...

30 Years of ARF

Founded in 1991, 2021 marks 30 years of ARF's lifesaving work. Founded in small, donated space and operated by a team of dedicated volunteers, that first year resulted in just over one hundred dogs and cats saved.

Today, ARF is renowned as a regional leader and national model in the animal welfare community. Since its inception, ARF has found homes for more than 44,000 dogs and cats, performed more than 51,000 spay and neuter surgeries, and changed countless lives. From the bottom of our hearts, we’d like to thank each and every person who has supported ARF over the years, and made our work possible.
