Saving Both Ends of the Leash® through ARF's Pets and Vets program

 YOU DID IT


Thanks to you, the Campaign for Pets and Vets surpassed all expectations and came to a successful close on December 31, 2019. Launched in November 2017, this $18.7 million effort saw unprecedented support with more than 19,800 donors making 59,350 gifts in just over two years to benefit all ARF's animal programs, with the centerpiece being the new Pets and Vets Center and animal care expansion.

Your inspired leadership and generosity is saving lives and transforming families. Your enduring investment creates new optimism and opportunities as ARF expands Pets and Vets nationally to reach more veterans and animals in need in the years to come.

You are empowering a bright future by bringing people and animals together in new and promising ways. Thank you!

Originally built in 2003 to accommodate 112 cat and only 37 dog habitats, ARF seeks to address its space challenges by increasing dog holding space with 30 additional new dog runs totaling 4,917 square feet. ARF will save the lives of 500 more dogs each year and meet the increasing demand of veterans on our waiting list seeking potential service dogs. New veterinary intake space, new grooming room, all-weather exercise fields, and additional office space will benefit all shelter animals.

A new solar array will reduce energy costs and ARF's carbon footprint. And, to preserve the integrity of our facilities and minimize the impact on ARF's operating budgets, the endowment will ensure that building repairs and upkeep occur in a timely manner.
