Our Volunteer and Foster Home Program

ARF is instrumental in the world of animal rescue/rehab/re-home because we have an AMAZING team of volunteers. We are always looking for responsible individuals/families to help us during various fundraising events, and of course can always use new additions
to our successful Foster Home Program.

Before you complete the volunteer application please consider certain aspects of volunteering on any animal rescue TEAM. All volunteers have different personalities and beliefs, and yet we all come together with one goal: to save lives. The ARF team welcomes friendly personalities and open minds, new ideas and positive attitudes. We are driven by the knowledge there is suffering to end, and an ARF volunteer doesn't just talk the talk, we walk the walk.

Here is one of the many unique projects that have been taken on by our volunteers!

These beautiful blankets are made for our kitties by Vikki Kline.

One goes to every foster home when intake of a feline occurs. The blanket then goes with the foster upon adoption...something of their own to take with them!

There are lots of great ways to help ARF!!

Rescued Hearts

Taking care of rescue dogs
Is something I do best.
I know because I've done it,
And I've surely passed the test.
The dogs I've bathed, the food I've fed,
The vacuuming I've done.
And all to watch a frightened soul
Sit dreaming in the sun.

My own dogs I've neglected,
But I tell them every day,
That I love and cherish each of them
Though a new dog's come to stay.
I know they understand this,
For in their eyes I see
The love that I have given them
Coming shining back at me.

Some people think I'm crazy,
Some others think I'm great,
But very few can understand
What really is at stake.
If I can love and help a dog
To find a better way,
My own life is much richer,
I look forward to each day.

So now you know my secret.
It's there for all to see.
The love I give, the life I save,
I do it all for ME.
