FAQ’s

FAQ’s

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.

To Love a Rescuer

To love a rescuer you must love all of her. You must love the scars covering her body from panicked and hurt animals she was trying to help. You must love her fractured heart, that has been broken so many times she no longer even takes the time to mend the pieces.

To love a rescuer, you must embrace her grit and determination, and know that although she fights a war she can never win, she can and does win a few battles. You must love the tears she will shed over those she lost. You must give her comfort that she refuses to accept, as she blames herself for things she could have never foreseen.

To love a rescuer you must acknowledge the rage she feels towards the world at times, and know that anger is driven by a love of life too few have. You must give her space and room to cry and mourn for the losses that others have caused out of carelessness or cruelty.

To love a rescuer you must understand her passion to heal and save is a calling, not a choice. You must accept that to save animals is part of her soul and without that she could never be happy.

To love a rescuer you must be patient. You must accept her work comes first. She will forgo sleep, forgo food, forgo her life for animals in need. She will work tirelessly until her body and mind fail her completely and she cannot go on.

To Love a rescuer, you must be strong. You must not be threatened by her focus and love of animals. You must accept that the things you love about her, the strength and convictions and loyalty are also what drives her sense of duty to animals in need; you cannot have one without the other.

To love a rescuer you must never ask her to choose, because she will, and it will not be you.
