A donation to the Hope Fund supports veterinary care and other treatment for ARF-rescued animals in need of life-saving care.
Your gift to the ARF Emergency Medical Fund® (EMF) provides residents of Contra Costa County in California with affordable, non-urgent veterinary care for their pets during times of serious financial crisis.
ARF's flagship program transforms rescue dogs into skilled service animals for veterans with PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, anxiety, severe depression, and more. Like trusted battle buddies, ARF's Pets and Vets dogs are invaluable partners for veterans readjusting to civilian life, providing powerful therapeutic and practical benefits.
