Support a Permanent Resident
They are not up for adoption. They live here permanently.
If you love and care about animals, but are unable to adopt because of your housing or family situation, allergies, or any other reason, you can still help the ARF animals by sponsoring one of our permanent resident "Sanctuary babies."
Part of ARF's mission is to provide shelter, medical care, and love to animals who are "unwanted" or have been "abandoned." For a myriad of reasons, some of these animals are considered not suitable for adoption. To this end, we have many "permanent residents" at ARF. They are loved and cared for by ARF staff every day and are very happy with living out the rest of their lives at ARF.
The resources required to care for these animals are significant. Shelter, medical care, food, water, utilities, cleaning supplies, bedding, and staff to care for the animals are all costs incurred in caring for the animals. The only funding ARF receives is from donations and grants. As a not-for-profit organization, all of the funding that we receive is used to care for the animals.
