AARF stands for Animal Adoption and Rescue Foundation. We are a local, non-profit, all volunteer organization founded in May of 1993. We help over 1000 animals each year in finding loving homes. Animals come to us through a variety of situations. Some are found on highways or in neighborhoods, some are relinquished by their owners who can no longer care for them, but most of our animals are strays. AARF tries to prevent these animals from ending up homeless or in euthanizing shelters. It is our goal to provide a service of matching good loving animals with people who want to provide a good loving home.
