Spring is here ... and so is puppy and kitten season! Every year, springtime brings a boom of infant cats and dogs to animal shelters. While that may sound downright adorable, young animals place a strain on shelters as they rally to provide space, time, and resources for some of the most vulnerable lives in animal welfare.

How can you help?

Donations from our annual Puppy & Kitten Shower fundraiser carry our foster program through the entire year. These critical resources don't only benefit adorable baby animals, but any dog or cat who spends time in one of ARF's volunteer foster homes. You can view the list of our foster program's most-needed items at the bottom of this page. Shipping address: 2890 Mitchell Dr, Walnut Creek, CA 94598.

  • Shop for needed items online at Pet Food Express! By using this link, 4% of your purchase total is donated back to ARF, allowing you to maximize your life-saving efforts.
  • View our foster program's extensive online Amazon wish list. Remember to select ARF as your charity for Amazon Smile, and mark your purchase as a gift so we can send a thank you!
  • Make a monetary gift that allows our foster team to select the items they need most — when they need them most.
  • Drop off a donation in-person on Saturday, April 10 from 1 - 5 pm only. Just look for the signs directing you to ARF's foster entrance at 2890 Mitchell Dr, Walnut Creek. Masks and social distancing are required.
