Empowering Compassion,

Transforming Lives

Welcome to the heart of AARF

Our story begins with a shared passion for animals and a commitment to making a difference in our community. AARF is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of animals in need for many years to come.

Our Mission

At AARF, our mission is simple yet profound: to provide a second chance at life to animals who have been neglected, abused, or abandoned. We believe that every animal deserves love, care, and a safe place to call home. Through our unwavering dedication and tireless efforts, we strive to be a beacon of hope for animals in our community.

Years of Experience



What Sets Us Apart

Our dedicated team of volunteers and staff members is passionate about making a difference in the lives of animals. From providing care and shelter to offering love and companionship, we're committed to ensuring that each animal in our care receives the attention and support they need to thrive.


Compassion is at the core of everything we do. From the moment an animal enters our care to the day they find their forever home, we treat each animal with the love and respect they deserve.

Community Engagement

We believe in the power of community. Through partnerships, outreach programs, and education initiatives, we strive to build a community that is united in its commitment to animal welfare.

Transparency & Accountability

We are committed to transparency and accountability in everything we do. We adhere to the highest standards of animal care and welfare, and we are accountable to our community.

"We adopted our little Dalmatian mix from AARF about 2 years ago. We found them on petfinder.com and drove about 2 hours to see the dog we saw on PetFinder. The women who we met obviously cared for the dogs in their care. We couldn't wait to adopt."
