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, “Giving to 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.

Big news!  Effective immediately, ARF cannot take in any more animals until further notice due to construction upgrades. We are running a cat adoption special, $20 for adult cats and $40 for kittens under 6 months of age through August 4, 2017. The dog adoption center is CLOSED for visiting hours. Dog meet & greets and adoptions are by appointment only. All adopters must complete adoption applications either via our website, or in person Monday-Friday, 10am-noon or 1pm-5pm, or Saturday noon-3pm. Please keep in mind that adoption applications take up to 3 business days to process. We do not do same-day adoptions because we check vet and personal references to make sure our babies are going to capable, loving homes.  Thank you!

Friends, it is with an extremely heavy heart we write this. Today, we had to make an excruciating decision. Hazel Grace's xrays today showed what we had feared. Hazel was still unable to have bowel movements on her own, and would not regain use of her bowels. For the last 5 days, Hazel knew love and showed us unconditional love. We had three veterinarians examine xrays and discuss options. All 3 were in agreement that her prognosis was poor and long term quality of life was poor due to infection risks, etc. As hard as it was to make this decision, it was hard every day to come in and see her in the condition she was in. ARF staff were with her at the end, and we want everyone to know if there was anything we could do to possibly make her life better, we would have done it. We wish we had better news to share, but we also are thankful that her last days were happy days and she was loved, warm, and had a full belly. As the vet said, had she not come in, she would have passed away out in the elements sooner rather than later left in the shape she was in. ... See MoreSee Less
