Muncie ARF consistently works with members of the community to provide veterinary care, resources, and supplies to pet owners without access. The staff members work continuously to find new ways to provide spay & neuter services as well as routine vaccinations. Often those who seek to surrender an animal are doing so because of a lack of resources. We have found that when offered veterinary care or pet food at a reduced price, they often choose to keep the animal, keeping space open for cats or dogs in need of immediate shelter.

Members of the community are encouraged to come and recycle their aluminum waste (not just cans). Proceeds from recycling the aluminum go directly back into ARF's pet care expenses.
Muncie ARF has drastically reduced its waste output on numerous fronts. We are currently working to eliminate our use of plastic water bottles through the implementation of coolers.
Community Food Drive
Any extra food we receive goes either to other rescues or into our community food drive. Every Friday, low-income pet owners have the opportunity to come and buy cans and bags of food for a fraction of the original cost.
ARF's Thrift Store
The ARF Thrift Store carries everything from clothing to furniture. All profits from items sold go to supporting the animals in ARF’s care.
Muncie ARF often works with members of the community with various accessibility issues. We have ramps to all of our buildings for those with mobility issues. For those without technology or the internet, our staff have paper copies of forms and applications and are more than happy to make calls for those without phones. Our staff also assist with filling out documents for those with reading challenges.
Senior citizens 65 years and older are connected with senior cats and dogs over the age of 7.
