Updates Regarding COVID-19 and ARF

Updated August 10, 2021

Thank you for your continued interest and support of ARF. Our shelter animals are our top priority. Please review our current adoption process. All adoptions are currently by appointment only and available animals may be viewed online. Per Contra Costa County's 8/2/21 health order, we require all members of the public (adopters, visitors, donors, customers, etc), as well as all ARF employees and volunteers, to wear protective face coverings while inside our facility.

ARF requires staff, volunteers, and visitors to follow all current safety recommendations from Contra Costa Health Services. 

The following programs are currently suspended:

 Be prepared to take care of your pet(s) in the event that you should become ill:

  • Identify a family member or friend who can care for pet.
  • Have crates, food, and extra supplies (including medications) on-hand for quick movement of pet. A pet first-aid kit is also good to have for any unplanned situation.
  • Ensure your animal's vaccines are up-to-date in the event boarding becomes necessary.
  • Document all medications with dosages and administering directions. Including the prescription from your veterinarian if a refill could be necessary.
  • Pets should have identification such as an ID tag on their collar and/or a microchip. Remember: A microchip is only as good as the contact information registered to it.
