Help ARF


ARF DonationsARF provides homeless animals the promise of a loving & full life by providing shelter, medical care, & love until their permanent “forever” homes are found. ARF receives no public funding. Everything we do for the animals is only possible because of your support via donations of supplies, funds, recycling aluminum cans, & volunteering. The ARF animals & staff are truly grateful for your support!

Donating Supplies

Caring for the homeless animals at ARF requires much money, time, & supplies. We are always in need of dry & wet dog & cat food (with no red dye), cat litter, floor cleaner (i.e. Pine-sol), trash bags, hot dogs, laundry detergent, fabric softener sheets, dog beds, pet crates (for transporting animals), blankets & towels.


ARF VolunteersOne of the greatest gifts anyone can give is the gift of time.  Volunteers must be 18 years old & must attend a one-hour training session.  If you are interested in attending a training session, please contact ARF to find out when the next training session is.

If you have a group wanting to volunteer, please call to schedule a day for you to come in and help!  For groups that are under 18 years of age, we would be more than happy to give a tour to young animal lovers and explain what we do at ARF!

If you have any questions, please email or call us!


Sponsor an ARF Permanent Resident Sanctuary House Animal

If you love and care about animals, but are unable to adopt because of your housing or family situation, allergies, or any other reason, you can still help the ARF animals by sponsoring one of our permanent resident “Sanctuary babies.”

Part of ARF’s mission is to provide shelter, medical care, and love to animals who are “unwanted” or have been “abandoned.” For a myriad of reasons, some of these animals are considered not suitable for adoption. To this end, we have many “permanent residents” at ARF. They are loved and cared for by ARF staff every day, and are very happy with living out the rest of their lives at ARF.

The resources required to care for these animals are significant.  Shelter, medical care, food, water, utilities, cleaning supplies, bedding, and staff to care for the animals are all costs incurred in caring for the animals. The only funding ARF receives is from donations and grants.  As a not-for-profit organization, all of the funding that we receive is used to care for the animals.

Monetary Donations

If you would like to make a monetary donation to ARF, you can donate online through PayPal, credit or debit card, or drop off a check or cash at the ARF main campus Tuesdays-Thursdays, 1-4pm. You may also mail a check to ARF, 1209 W. Riggin Rd., Muncie, IN 47303. If the donation in honor of, or memory of, a pet or individual, please include pertinent information in the note section of the online donation.
