If I witness animal abuse, who

do I call?

If you witness animal abuse, please contact your local law enforcement agency immediately. (ARF has no legal authority.)

What happens if a dog or cat is not adopted for a long period of time?

When an animal is surrendered to ARF, a commitment is made to give the animal a life filled with love. ARF animals will stay as long as it takes to find them a loving, permanent home. In some cases, ARF acts as a sanctuary and becomes the animal’s forever home.

If I find an animal, can I bring it to ARF?

If you find a stray animal, we recommend taking it to your closest local veterinarian’s office to have the animal scanned for a microchip. This is a free service, & the ultimate goal is to unite the animal with its rightful owner. If the animal does not have a microchip and you are in Muncie please contact the Muncie animal shelter at 765-747-4851 as all strays need to go through them. If you are not in Muncie please call us beforehand to make an appointment for intake.
