How you can help!



Just a few hours out of your day or week would make a world of difference in the lives of our animals!   We have a real need for help with our cats weekday mornings and evenings. We can always use dog walkers, too!


If you're looking for a puppy, a kitten, or an adult dog or cat, ARF has many animals that are just waiting for their forever homes to come to them. Check out our dogs and cats for adoption!


Whether it's by giving a direct donation, shopping through one of ARF's affiliates, or by sponsoring a pet - there are many ways you can help the animals at ARF! And all your donations to us are tax-deductible!

Upcoming Events

Beacon Barks, April 26, 2014, 10 AM to 3 PM

Please join us at Beacon Barks, a celebration of animal rescues, shelters, and welfare organizations, and the volunteers who work with them. The event is on April 26th, on Main Street, Beacon, and begins at 10 am, running until 3 pm.

We invite all our ARF friends to join us in marching in the parade. All leashed dogs are welcome to join the fun and march as well! The parade line-up starts at 10:30 am, near Wolcott Avenue and Main Street, with the parade touching off at 11:10 am.

Make sure to also stop by ARF’s booth for some delicious baked goods, ARF tee shirts, and to pick up a “Blue Ribbon” for your dog. We look forward to seeing some ARF alums with their forever families!
