ARF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit
Our mission is to bring about a time where there are no more homeless pets, to eliminate suffering of animals and to increase public awareness of the philosophy of reverence of life.
"ARF has a great staff, and I am so glad that Army Aviation Center Federal Credit Union could play a small role in helping facilitate the needs of the animals that you all have taken in. " Kassie Irby
Animal Rescue Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in December 1995 and dedicated to promoting the welfare and humane treatment of animals; through rescue, fostering and placement. Adoptable cats and dogs awaiting a permanent, loving, family are placed in our foster center, hence its name - the ARFanage.
We operate solely from donations. Adoption donations are $95 for dogs, $70 for cats. All pets placed for adoption have been socialized, evaluated and seen by a vet. All are micro chipped, up to date on shots, up to date on heartworm preventative and spayed/neutered before placement.
We practice non-lethal population control, including early-age spay/neuter. ARF advocates on behalf of all individual animals about the humanity of sterilization, not euthanasia, as an effective solution to reproduction and unnecessary breeding. Over time, their numbers can be effectively reduced and their lives improved.
We care for all animals, regardless of age, breed, illness or disability, and believe these precious souls are to be given the respect of any other God-created life. Please join us in our mission to provide an animal-loving community, where pets are at home, not home-less!
