GIVING TO ARF
ARF 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!
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.
One of the greatest gifts anyone can give is the gift of time. If you are interested in becoming an ARF volunteer, please come to the Adoption Center to pick up a Volunteer Handbook Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays from 1-4pm. Volunteers must be 18 years old & must attend a one-hour training session (training sessions are offered twice per month.)
Groups wishing to volunteer must contact ARF two weeks before to schedule a time & date.
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. Take a look at our Sanctuary babies and read their stories HERE.
