Growing takes money -- and ARF is on the grow! We've had a big year with an even bigger one on the horizon. We need more volunteers who love animals and want to help the homeless ones find good homes. We also desperately need more donations.
To help with our boarding costs, we especially need FOSTER HOMES. Remember, when you adopt a dog you save two -- the one you adopted and the one we can now pull from the kill shelter. BUT WHEN YOU FOSTER, you can save several dogs, puppies, cats, or kittens every year! Fostering animals is an act of true love and humanity. It's also educational to get to know different breeds, types, and temperaments.
We will be moving into OUR FIRST ADOPTION CENTER in 2015 and we need additional funds to get the building spruced up and ready for our adoptable pets and wonderful adopters! The building is located in LaFortune Park, 52nd and Yale, right near the jogging path and facing Yale. We plan to have it open four or five days a week. We'll still be at PetSmart on Fridays (71st Street) and Saturdays (41st Street).
Recently, we've taken in some emergency medical cases that used more money than usual. The animals were going to be euthanized and we knew we could fix them up and adopt them out, so we took on the expense of surgery and other medical expenses. Because of that, we took a big hit financially.
Please go to this website to read more about our need for emergency funding and make a donation to help us close out the year in the black column instead of the red one!
As ever, our our-legged friends THANK YOU!
Do you like cats and kittens?
We need volunteers to help us keep our cats and kittens happy at the PetSmart on 41st between Yale and Sheridan. It only requires an hour or so of your time once a week and you'll be helping cats and kittens find new homes and a second chance at happiness.
Fill out a volunteer form today. Thanks!
