Who We Are

Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation was created in 1991 by Tony and Elaine La Russa to address the needs of companion animals. Their vision for ARF is an organization that can not only aid abandoned and homeless animals, but also promote the concept that people's lives can be enhanced by strengthening the bonds between humans and animals. With these intertwined goals as the guiding principles, and an intention to become a national as well as local leader, ARF has designed progressive programs for many populations including abused children, the elderly, victims of violence and others who can benefit from the healing contact of animals.

Adopting a friend

We are committed to placing animals in loving, responsible and permanent homes. Adoption fees include spay or neuter, microchip, FeLV/FIV testing (for cats) and appropriate vaccinations.

Adoption fees are:
Dog: $225 - includes a 50% discount on their first seven week session of dog training classes
Puppy under 6 months: $250 - includes a 60% discount on their first seven week session of dog training classes
Cat: $50
Kitten under 6 months: $125

Come Visit ARF!

We always have cute and cuddly, loving pets of all sizes, colors and ages available for adoption at ARF's adoption sites. Trained adoption counselors are always on hand to help you make the best selection when choosing your furry new friend.

In order to ensure a successful match, the adoption process may take an hour or more to complete. Potential adopters should arrive early and allocate the appropriate amount of time for a successful adoption.

To save time on adoption day, download and complete a dog adoption survey or cat adoption survey to bring with you.
