What are ARF’s adoption hours?

ARF is currently open Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays from 1PM to 5PM, & Saturdays from Noon-3PM. We also can arrange adoptions by appointment.

How does ARF receive its funding?

ARF receives 100% of its funding through donations & grants. ARF receives no government funding. We are a local organization with no ties to any national organization. If you would like to make an unrestricted monetary donation to ARF please e-mail, info@munciearf.com for further information.

If I witness animal abuse, or believe I know of an animal that is in direct danger, should I call ARF?

If you witness animal abuse, please contact your local law enforcement agency immediately. (ARF has no legal authority.)

What happens if a dog or cat is not adopted after a long period of time?

When an animal is surrendered to ARF, a commitment is made to give the animal a life filled with love. ARF animals will stay as long as it takes to find them a loving, permanent home. In some cases, ARF acts as a sanctuary and becomes the animal’s forever home.

I found an animal. Can I bring it to ARF?

If you find a stray animal, we recommend taking it to your closest local veterinarian’s office to have the animal scanned for a microchip. This is a free service, & the ultimate goal is to unite the animal with its rightful owner. If the animal does not have a microchip & you would like to bring the animal to ARF, please call ARF in advance to make an appointment.

What are ways that I can help ARF?

There are many ways individuals from all backgrounds can help ARF carry out our mission. You can donate, volunteer, save aluminum cans, or adopt. For more ways to help ARF, please visit our, “Help ARF” page.

I do not want my pet any longer. Can I bring it to ARF?

If you are in the unfortunate situation where you are no longer able to keep your family pet & would like to surrender your pet to ARF, it is important that you call ARF in advance to make an appointment before bringing your pet in to be placed in our adoption program. If you have a pet that you would like to surrender to ARF, please email info@munciearf.com. We do ask that your pet be current on vaccinations before being surrendered to ARF.

Our hearts are broken for our dear friend and long time ARF family member Kristie Lowe and her husband Todd, as they mourn the loss of their beloved son TJ who was tragically taken last week in a traffic accident. Kristie shared her love for animals with TJ, who visited ARF many times and as recently as last week. His passing will leave a hole in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. In the days and weeks ahead, we will hold Kristie, Todd, and their entire family close, and we are here to help with anything that they may need. Please keep the Lowe family in your thoughts during this difficult time, and offer a prayer that in time they will find comfort and draw strength from the love and support of those around them. ...

We shared with you earlier this morning some newborn kittens that are the newest arrivals at ARF. Tonight we want to reintroduce you to our oldest animal at ARF, Lucille. Lucille is a favorite amongst staff and volunteers, and frequently goes for ice cream with her BFF, Brittany Carper. Lucille has a spunky personality and enjoys every day. She loves car rides, walks, and playing with the other dogs. Lucille is one of our residents and we enjoy being able to provide her a retirement home. Lucille was reported to be 17 years old when turned in last year after her owner passed away. We hope to have many more years with this beautiful soul! ... See MoreSee Less

Have you been to the Catty Shack in the last couple of weeks? If so you may have noticed a few changes- first and foremost, it has a fresh new coat of paint with some updated colors which we owe a huge THANK YOU to Julie Avery for- she noticed the cat house was in need of a fresh coat of paint and offered to pick out new colors and also donate the paint! we also want to thank the employees of Muncie Power Products who recently supplied the manpower for the Catty shack paint day! Secondly, when you walk in, the cats in the living room that are available for adoption are in large “kitty condos “- don’t worry- we still have four rooms of free roaming cats- but this helps us keep cats from running out the front door, and also gives spaces to cats that prefer to live without feline roommates. We are making improvements to the walkway and yard next, so please bear with us and watch for updates on the outside of the catty shack and opportunities to help us continue to make ARF a better place for the animals and people who come to visit and adopt! ...
