About ARF

Animal Rescue Foundation, also commonly known as ARF, is a Federal 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill, 100% volunteer animal rescue located in Beacon, NY. Our dedicated volunteers are driven by their love for animals and their desire to improve the lives of the cats and dogs at ARF. 

Since 1986, we’ve rescued, rehabilitated, sheltered, and found loving homes for thousands of cats and dogs. Every step is taken to assure that animals go to good and appropriate adoptive homes. Even those who aren’t chosen by a family experience unwavering love and care from our devoted volunteers, creating a forever home right here at ARF.
