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
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.
