ARRF of Leland, MS is just a wonderful organization comprised of volunteers who in their spare time, rescue and care for the poor and forgotten dogs in this rural area. The shelter (if you ant to call it a shelter) is not air-conditioned or heated and is in very poor condition where the animals struggle with severe weather conditions of extreme heat and cold.

These women spend countless hours to rescue the dogs, find suitable foster homes, clean the shelter, bring blankets and towels to the shelter, provide medical care with either donations or out of their own pocket, and then work with shelters in other states who can hopefully help them to place some of these sweet animals in permanent homes.

The volunteers of Animal Relief & Rescue Fellowship work tirelessly to help these forgotten animals who would otherwise suffer and die. I have worked with them to foster some of their dogs and also adopted a few of their sweet dogs who are now part of our family and who bring us much joy.

ARRF of Leland, MS, was thorough and forthright and provided all pertinent information as best they could about the dogs transported to our area and through their dedication and love for these sweet and innocent dogs, many families

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have been the recipient of some of these wonderful rescued animals and have adopted and fostered several of their dogs. The conditions in Leland, MS are pretty miserable and it feels good to know that some of the dogs, entirely through their effort, have made it out of the area and are now in loving homes.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would encourage goups who help to place animals to work with these wonderful volunteers to help them move as many dogs as possible in to loving homes.

The volunteers with Animal Relief and Rescue Fellowship (ARRF) are tireless in their dedication to saving the lives of the lost, abandoned, and abused animals of Leland, Mississippi and the surrounding unincorporated county area. This small group has taken a dog pound's 98% kill rate and changed it to a 98% adoption rate. The only animals that are put down are those that are too sick to save or too aggressive to safely place with a family. While the dog pound is still a terrible facility, there are many happy endings for society's thrown away animals.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have worked with the dog pound since the time when the dogs were taken outside of the shelter building and shot by the dog catcher after their few days of incarceration were up. I have seen dogs that have been injured by cars and in dog fights that, before ARRF's involvement, were thrown into the dog pound to die a slow death on the cold concrete floor. I have seen dogs die from conditions that they could have been saved from. Thank God and ARRF that it is a new day for these precious animals!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The main change that I would make to ARRF would be to have more volunteers so that the burden of handling so many animals would not fall on the shoulders of so few. Finding willing volunteers is difficult, at best. I would also like to see ARRF have a volunteer grant writer.
