What a wonderful organization!!! ARF is such a special place- It has been such a treat to watch them grow from a grass roots organization born out of the director, Elizabeth Jackson's love, and dedication to animals after hurricane Katrina displaced and left so many abandoned animals in the Jackson metro area after the storm to the wonderful inner city shelter it is today. . She has taken ARF from a dream to one of the most amazing no kill shelters in the state of Mississippi!! ARF is such a well run, top notch facility where the animals are loved and well cared for. Kudos to Mr and Mrs Jackson for all the sacrifices they make in their lives so that so many animals can have a better life!!!
I learned about ARF of MS last year and have enjoyed following them and their stories. I am an avid animal lover and love reading all of their success stories. I live out of state but feel close and connected to them through the common bond of animal care. Even though I've seen and worked with many other shelters, in several different states, they stand out to me. Their care and concern for the welfare of ALL animals is genuine and their organization is unique. Whenever I am able I love being able to donate what I can and help them. I can't wait until I can come visit them one day!
This organization is the real deal! They care for the most animals with the absolute least overhead. Their facility is simple and spotless. Volunteers are inspired by the founder to show love and compassion to any and all God's creatures. Using a "no-kill" shelter philosophy, they turn none away and always find ways to mend broken bodies and treat painful memories. This group deserves our support!
