If you'd like to volunteer or foster, contact the shelter and they will be happy for the help. If you'd like to make a monetary donation or bring in cleaning products, paper towels, dog and cat beds, crates, flea preventative, collars, leashes, high-quality food and treats, or toys - whatever you can give, ARF will put it to great use. Don't forget, your donation is tax-deductible!
They have many great programs to help socialize the pets in their care and to educate the community about the proper way to treat, care for and respect all animals. ARF sponsors a prison foster program that benefits both the handlers and the animals in very profound ways; a seniors for seniors program that matches more mature adopters with more mature pets! Anyone over 65 years old may adopt a cat or dog over 7 years of age for half the regular adoption fee. They also have a program called, "Under the Wing", which helps people and their pets stay together, especially through emergencies such as domestic violence, hospitalization, and foreclosure.
Animals give us all so much; all they ask in return is to be loved. Do some good and give a little piece of your time and heart. They deserve it all!
