Rock City Rescue is the best rescue organization ever. 100% of their donations go towards the animals. They thoroughly vet prospective owners and follow up with them after the adoption is complete. You won’t find a more compassionate and professional rescue group anywhere! I highly recommend Rock City Rescue!!

AFA is an excellent organization! The compassionate mission of this organization is seen each day as they tirelessly save animals lives and help the wonderful creatures find loving homes. The low cost and free health care helps the animals have a healthy new start on their road to adoption or helps ease the pain and suffering of the less or non-adoptable.

I have used Arkansans For Animals between 25 and 30 times. Never had a bad experience and all my dogs had great experiences. I found the staff caring and very informative about the surgeries and the aftercare. I have also sent others and they were always pleased. I believe this organization truly cares about the overpopulation of our fur babies. I would highly recommend them to you

Arkansans for Animals is a fabulous organization! We are so fortunate they are here to help the animals of Central Arkansas with low cost spay and neuters and now wellness clinics! All of my personal pets have gone there along with the many, many dogs I foster for a local rescue! Wish I could give them 10 stars!

Arkansans for Animals provides a much needed, low cost option for those of us who need it. I have taken my foster dogs and cats there and they always get excellent treatment. I always recommend them to my friends. We need to spread the word that there is an affordable place to have our pets neutered and receive vaccinations so that there aren't so many unwanted dogs and cats and that our pet are healthy.

This is an organization that is truly a blessing to Arkansas. They provide low cost spay/neutering, medications , and microchipping. I wasn't aware of this group until I became a foster for Rock City Rescue. If the rescues didn't have this affordable service they wouldn't be able to save as many animals as they do.

We have fostered quite a few puppies/dogs from Rock City Rescue over the years and we have been so very proud to be a part of the organization! Casey is a very compassionate person who takes pride in locating “just the right families’ for all the babies that have not been wanted by others! She is truly a God send to all of them!

AFA has helped me get my kitten and two dogs spayed and neutered, vaccinated and microchipped at a very low-cost. They are always helpful, friendly, informative and kind to my pets. They not only helped me provide the best for my furries, they provide a huge service to the community!

I was so pleased to learn of this organization when I had a box of kittens dumped by my office last year. I took the kittens in when they were old enough to be spayed/neutered along with their shots. These kittens were easily adopted afterwards and people actually PAID for the fees as a way of reimbursement. I think when someone buys a pet they tend to place more value on it and take better care of the animal.

I LOVE ARKANSAS FOR ANIMALS!!!

GREAT organization! They provide low cost spay/neuter, micro chipping and shots to all the furbies. You feel like you're leaving your pet with family when you drop them off. You can be assured that your fur kids will be well taken care of while they're in their care.

This organization has served Arkansas for 30 years in defense of animals. Their work has included advocacy, legislation, protection, cruelty investigations, legal advice and assistance, program assistance for other animal advocates, disaster relief and emergency sheltering, and a large mobile and stationary spay/neuter program. Further, they have assisted the creation of other spay programs in other states. They have been and continue to be extremely effective.

This is a tip-top organization which provides stellar care for the dogs and cats who go there for spay/neuter. To be able to take a feral cat in a trap in for altering without an appointment is a huge help to those of us who are regular trappers.

We work closely with Arkansans for Animals and have for several years. As a rescue, and as a private client personally we are always happy with their services. They have always strived to serve the animals of our community by offering low cost options. Without their services, many pet owners would struggle to provide sterilization and shots for their pets. We're very thankful for them and their services.

The state of Arkansas is very fortunate to have such a great spay/neuter resource that is offered to the community AND rescue organizations. We have used the Operation: SAVE Little Rock location for many years now and always leave with a smile on our face. If we encounter any surgical issue or have questions/concerns, the director is very prompt and attentive to our needs. We have also utilized the MASH clinic a few times in various cities. Everyone has always been very friendly and our animals have recovered well. I would urge the community to take advantage of this clinic and all of the many services it has to offer. The prices can't be beat!!

I have been with AFA since 1996, first as a volunteer and later as a board member. AFA provides low-cost spay/neurter sevices statewide with a mobile unit and a clinic located in Little Rock, AR. AFA works with people and organizations as varied as a caretaker of a feral cat colony to metropolitan animal control shelters. In addition to spay/neuter services AFA educates the general public and legislators and supports changes to laws concerning the State's most critical animal abuse problems such as puppy mills, dog fighting and inadequate sheltering.

I have been using AFA for years now and am very pleased with the care my animals receive. The incisions are small and neat. I have never experienced any complications or problems. Recovery time is quick. The prices are extremely affordable. It is a clean facility with friendly staff.
