ANIMALS RESCUE FUND INC
October 18, 2012
ARF is a fantastic organization. I volunteered there for four years while I attended a nearby university and I loved every minute of it. I also miss volunteering there every week. ARF staff is so friendly and helpful to the public as well as the furry animals they help save. One of the best things you can witness in this world is changing the opinion of a dog or cat that have been previously mistreated. Many times people think that the animal will not be able to live a normal life with an owner. But at ARF, they work so hard to regain the trust of those animals and in turn place them with the correct owner(s). Then as soon as that dog or cat is placed they go right back out and take in another animal in need. ARF staff has such big hearts, ones that match only the love a dog can give to its family.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I now own a ARF dog. She is the best dog I have ever had and I have trained her to be a therapy dog.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
In college when I was volunteering for ARF, I have severe depression. But ARF gave me a place to go and a new home. The staff was so friendly and welcoming that they felt like a second family.
Volunteer & I mainly worked in the kennels with the dogs. I did alot of cleaning, but also fed and watered the animals. I interacted with the dogs to help them become socialized. I also aided in adoptions by talking to people and helping them choose the right anim.
