Sylva, NC 28779

Our Mission

ARF's mission is to rescue and rehome shelter and community pets, transport dogs to new homes through no-kill shelters, educate the community, and offer low-cost spay and neuter. We also assist the shelter with unexpected medical costs. We need fosters, drivers, and fundraisers! Please volunteer with us.

ARF mainly works with dogs. These pets stay in our homes, where they receive full medical. (spay/neuter, heartworm test and prevention, flea and tick prevention, worming, and all vaccinations. We do most adoptions by appointment, but we are at our Railroad Ave locations on Saturday afternoons to offer signup for our bi-monthly spay/neuter trips. ARF has been serving Jackson County, NC since 1978.
