I have been involved withThe Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons for many years. I have had the pleasure of watching it grow into the amazing facility it is today. Years ago,when I was teaching elementary school, ARF would come into the classroom with an animal or two and give presentations to the students. This type of outreach is still going on and is but one example of the community oriented sevices ARF offers. Once a week I take an ARF animal to the local nursing home as part of a pet visitation program. I help with the training of the dogs in the kennel, and assist with the care and socialization of the newly rescued dogs. I go on off-site adopt-a-thons and rescue transports. Arf now has two experienced dog trainers, and can also boast of having a CGC evaluator and veterinarian on staff. And speaking of staff, ARF has a dedicated and caring one. Add to this a group of wonderful volunteers, and you have a fabulous organization with which I am extremely proud to be associated. I am also a proud mom of several ARF animals.......we like to call them ARFans. They are, of course, perfect!

As a multiple adopter from The Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons (ARF) in the past five years, with two puppy mill adoptions and three cats, there is a good reason why I have chosen to adopt from ARF. The facility is bright, cheerful and spotless. The dogs and cats are in areas that are sunny and well-ventilated, and there is a strong volunteer team who walk the dogs in the surrounding wooded area, and engage the cats. The staff is enthusiastic and caring. The animals at ARF have excellent veterinarian care, and every one that I have seen appears content and loved. The fundraising events are well-supported by the community. On a recent visit, there was a children's birthday party in the delightful cattery, where the birthday girl had her friends give a gift to ARF instead of a present to her. A win-win of teaching philanthropy and respect for animals. Well done, ARF!!
