ARF is a very caring, loving group of people working to provide the best possible life for an animal with no home. Many a time, pets come to them from the street or from kill shelters and they find them "forever" homes. So many happy endings happen here. The 2012 ARF animal calendar is proof of that. All photos of the pets are pets that have been saved by ARF and adopted out. All have very happy lives now. It's a win-win for all.

After working on and off at a couple of different animal shelters, I was so happy to find Animal Rescue Foundation! The team is amazing. Everyone is friendly and very family-like and man do they get their job done! I am a puppy foster and application checker for ARF and I know that we do our very best to pull, care for and adopt out dogs and cats of all situations, breeds and needs. Not only does ARF adopt out the cuter, smaller breeds, but also the bigger breeds, and dogs and cats that need serious medical care, including blind, deaf and heartworm positive dogs. Each of these animals is brought into a home, not a shelter, where they can learn to trust again. They all have a place to live until they are adopted by a forever family. ARF does NOT give up on any of its charges. They all stay with us as long as it takes. I love working with them, and often feel that I'm getting as much out of being a volunteer as the pets we adopt out. This is a place that is making a huge difference!

We adopted two cats from ARF, a 3 legged cat and a blind cat. They have both been the best cats we have owned! ARF has been very helpful when we needed some guidance and have become like a second family to us. I would not hesitate to adopt from them again or recommend them!

We adopted a dog back in Oct. A few days after we found out the he was in kidney failure. We were so sad for him, but realized there was no way that we would be able to care for him. We called and talked to the president and they agreed to come get him and brought another dog for us to meet. We adopted Joon ( know known as Little Bit. She is such a wonderful pet.We couldn't have asked for a better pet. We love her so much and she has been very therapeutic for my depression. Thank You so much ARF for bringing her into our lives Terry Frey and Mike Massow

I adopted my female cat in September of 2010. The ladies who showed the cat to me spent a lot of time letting me get to know her and telling me about what they knew about her. I would go to ARF again to adopt another cat.

I adopted the most loving tuxedo cat I have ever seen. He is remarkable. My Boston terrier needed a friend and I adopted my black pug Billie who is the love of my life in pet world. I can not express my sincere appreciation for this wonderful organization. Their love of animals show in the pets that they have adopted to wonderful families like myself. Highly recommend them.

Very caring animal rescue organization. ARF actively fosters and assists dogs and cats that need forever homes. ARF relies on volunteers for their time, homes for fostering, and their love of animals.
