Kennel Sponsorships

Sponsoring a room or play yard brings families, businesses, and private organizations a wonderful opportunity to become a part of the Animal Rescue Foundation family while also directly supporting the care to our furry friends. Approximately 6,000 visitors come through our doors every year, and we have over 11,500 followers throughout Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, so this is a great way to promote your business, and let the public know that you support animal causes.


The Kennel Sponsorship Program has many ways of working for you, as we have different ways of your name being seen. Multi-dog Suites, Single-dog Suites, Play yards, cat hotels, etc… are all awaiting your family name or business.



Cat hotels are single housing units for some of our feline companions that require their own space. These multi-level housing


DOG RUN $250


Dogs at the ARFanage have access to both indoor and outdoor living spaces. Sponsor a dog run attached to one of our single or multi-dog suites.





Cats loves some outdoor time too! Our cattery features an enclosed "catio" to allow our felines safe access to the outdoors!




Both the dog and cat buildings feature intake and isolation rooms, that are key to managing the health of the dogs and the cats in a shelter environment.




Our dogs have access to 3 spacious play yards to run and play with other dogs and our volunteers. They offer room to play fetch, run and even have offer seats for the humans to come hang out.




Most of our cats are housed in a group living environment. These multi-cat rooms are filled with cat trees, shelves with soft bedding for climbing, and lots of toys for play! This provides our cats with a home like environment instead of your typical shelter environment.




The ARFanage houses our dogs in spacious rooms instead of the stereotypical dog kennels you might expect. We have smaller rooms designated for dogs who may need their own space for medical or behavioral reasons.




Dogs love to play! Our multi-dog suites comprise the majority of our dog housing at the ARFanage to allow groups of 2-4 dogs to share a room. Each room features a kennel for each dog for feeding time and night but the dogs enjoy time to socialize in their room all day or take advantage of their attached dog runs. Being able to socialize with other dogs provides ARF dogs a lot of fun while they wait for their furever homes.
