The team at The Arrow Fund have the knowledge, the compassion and patience to help animals in need.
As the neglect and abuse of animals appears to be growing, we need more organizations like the Arrow Fund to step in and provide a safe future for them.
Thumbs up to all the volunteers and board members.

My family and I are the fortunate beneficiaries of the caring and tireless work of the Arrow Fund. We have recently adopted a wonderful dog who was the victim of extreme neglect and who would not be alive now without the Arrow Fund. They learned of this dog's plight, arranged transport from the other side of the state, paid for weeks of veterinary care that restored the animal to health, found a foster home for him and finally paid for him to be neutered before giving him to us for adoption. This story is repeated week after week, month after month with animals in the most extreme of conditions due to abuse or neglect. Most other organizations are not as able as the Arrow Fund to take on this responsibility. The Arrow Fund
is worthy of everyone's respect and support for the work they do for these animals in need.

This all-volunteer organization helps animals find the care they need when no one else will help them. These animals come in broken, and whenever possible, The Arrow Fund works to heal them, spay/neuter them, and then find them appropriate homes. When there is evidence that the injuries are the result of cruelty, The Arrow Fund works with prosecutors to seek justice for these animals. Readers of The Arrow Fund Facebook page can follow the progress of the animals and see how their donations are spent. This organization is worthy of a five-star rating.

This volunteer-based organization works tirelessly to protect and help animals by encouraging humane treatment through education, highlighting cases of extreme abuse and neglect, and promoting activism to improve all animal protection laws in this state and throughout the U.S. Animal shelters, humane societies, and rescue groups across this region rely on The Arrow Fund for assistance and guidance. I strongly recommend this group!

This organization began as part of The Shamrock Foundation. The date of separation was March 2013. Instead of going through the process required for a nonprofit to receive tax exempt status, they repurposed a dormant but existing nonprofit called Neuter Town, Inc.

The Arrow Fund has a very different mission than Neuter Town, Inc. Spaying and neutering of domestic cats and dogs is not very high on its agenda. Yet The Arrow Fund took time to change the name, but not the mission. Sure altering pets and other related activities are covered by the mission statement, but The Arrow Fund focuses on the rehabilitation and medical care of animals that have been subjected to extreme abuse.

The Arrow Fund likely could not stand the financial scrutiny of the IRS and wished to avoid paying the fee. An animal rights attorney is one of the board directors as well as the Kentucky director of the HSUS regional office so this organization should be well aware of the legalities.
