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, firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com. We do ask that your pet be current on vaccinations before being surrendered to ARF.
