HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Just because you canít take a dog into your home, doesnít mean you canít take one into your heart. There are many ways to help, we accept monetary donations in order to help pay for boarding costs and vet costs; we accept donations of "grain-free" food, bedding, toys and leashes. You can even choose a dog to sponsor. If you love the outdoors and love to walk, you can choose to become a volunteer dog walker. Every bit helps and is so appreciated. Pictured above is one of our sponsors, Flavia, she donates monthly to help our rescues.
Together we can make a difference!
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. We look forward to hearing from you.
FOREVER HOME NEEDED FOR JUNIOR
Junior is a sweet natured and gentle soul. He is 11 months old. Junior came to us scared and unsure - he has blossomed into a wonderful boy whose confidence grow every day. The best match for Junior is a home with another dog friendly dog as Junior loves the companionship of dogs. He is quite playful and being a pup he has bounds of energy but he also has his chilled out side as well where he loves to curl up beside you. If you are interested in making Junior a part of your life, please send us an email at email@example.com
PICK A PUPPY RUBY
Ruby has always been a star to us but she is shining much brighter since being on tvís Pick-a-Puppy show. After the show, Ruby found her forever home with Jenn and Stephen. They were able to see past that crazy puppiness to the beautiful, happy girl that she is. Ruby is their baby and the center of their life and attention. She is showered with love and attention, just what she always wanted and deserved. Although Ruby is no longer in need of a forever home, please take a look at our other stars who are still looking for their forever homes. Rescue dogs do not always come from the best circumstances (abused, unwanted or unloved), but with time, patience and love, we can find them the perfect home best suited for them and the owners.

WHO ARE WE... AARF is a No Kill Rescue
AARF exists to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home abandoned abused and unwanted dogs. AARF was established in 1998. We work with local as well as rural animal control facilities, humane societies where we rescue dogs that would otherwise be euthanized.
AARF uses a hands-on approach to train and rehabilitate dogs so that they may become family pets. Our program proves that the rate of successful placements is far higher if the dog is healthy, socialized, well trained and re-homed in an environment suited to
his or her personality.
AARF ensures that all dogs that come into the rescue are fully vetted. Each and every one is vet checked, treated for worms and fleas, spayed/neutered, heart worm checked and micro chipped. As well, most of senior dogs we rescue need extensive dental surgeries. We have also treated a number of dogs that were heart worm positive.
AARF is strictly a not-for-profit rescue; we receive no funds from any agency, corporation or government. AARF relies solely on the kindness and generosity of the public and community.
SPECIAL NOTE: Please think about your pets and what would happen to them if something were to happen to you....please don't assume that family or friends would step up and take in your pet(s) - make sure you have specific arrangements made and that it is clearly identified in your will.
ADOPTING A COMPANION
AARF Rescue adoption fees are based on the age of the dog:
Baby - Under 6 months old $ 400. Young - 6 Months to One year old $ 350. Young Adult - One to Six years old $ 350. Adult - Seven to Nine years old $ 250. Senior - Ten years old and up $ 200
AARF Rescue charges an adoption fee of $180 for a kitten or cat. We are a not-for-profit organization and all of the adoption fees go directly to the veterinary care of our dogs and cats.
Many dogs and cats we bring into our rescue are in need of medical care in addition to the regular series of shots and spay/neuter. Such medical care may include ear infections, blood tests, surgeries, dental work, grooming, just to name a few. Each dog or cat is vetted according to their specific requirements. However, all dogs and cats will have received their deworming, flea treatment, vaccinations including rabies, neutered/spayed and micro chipped.
Please note if the dog or cat is returned within 2 weeks (14 days) of the adoption date, the adoption fee less $50.00 (administrative fee) will be returned.
