Celebrate 31 years of saving lives and connecting hearts!

June 14 All day

Time flies when you’re saving lives! Believe it or not, we’re celebrating more than three decades of ARF! That’s why we have named June 14 as our first-ever ARF Giving Day.

Helping dogs and cats in need and finding them forever homes is only possible thanks to wonderful friends like you. Together, we’ve given more than 46,500 animals a second chance.

For the cats and dogs still waiting for a second chance, will you give them the gift of hope? Your support will provide for their rescue, vaccinations, spay / neuter surgeries, and everything they need on their journey to adoption.

You can give more homeless, neglected, and abused animals a safe place to heal and a second chance to find loving homes.

Please join us in saving lives on ARF Giving Day. With your help, we look forward to changing more lives and connecting more hearts. Thank you for celebrating with us!
