The mission of the Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) is to provide shelter, medical care, and love to abused, abandoned, neglected, and unwanted animals until permanent homes can be found. Through educational efforts,public awareness, and community involvement, ARF seeks to relieve animal suffering; to prevent cruelty, abuse, neglect and overpopulation; to eliminate euthanasia as a way of animal control, thereby creating a “no-kill” community in which both animals and humans benefit from the goodness of each other.
It may take at least 72 hours after submitting an application for ARF to process and check references.
Fill out the application completely and honestly, and skipped answers could lead to a delay in the application processing time.
ARF requires all animals in current care to be spayed/neutered prior to adopting an ARF animal unless deemed unsafe by a veterinarian.
All animals in current care must be vaccinated as directed by a veterinarian.
All animals in current care must be on flea control and heartworm prevention as directed by a veterinarian.
In some cases ARF may require a home visit.
ARF reserves the right to deny ANY adoption.
In the event that you adopt and are unable to keep an ARF animal for the entirety of its life, it will need to be returned to ARF.
