May 3, 2020: Be Kind to Animals Week
Greetings to all of you in these difficult times.
Animal Rescue Force (ARF) had to close all three of its adoption centers in March. However, we are still having some adoptions through ARF.Petfinder.com. We had all but two of our dogs adopted, including Maggie, our 10 year old Chihuahua. She was from the Manhattan shelter and was unspayed, partially blind, completely deaf, had kennel cough, an infected uterus and a mammary tumor. She recovered from most, became completely blind from cataracts. The foster had her for 2 years. Through it all, she is still peppy and active, very sweet; and we found a great home for her.
During the year we also took two large beagles, whose home was destroyed by fire--Buddy and Bubba. Bubba weighed 68 pounds. They really fought like some human brothers. Buddy got adopted quickly. Bubba was put on a diet and now weighs 50. He is such a sweetie, and is being fostered by a wonderful family. But they are only fostering, so he is still up for adoption. You can see him on our web site, as well as our cats and, soon, our baby kittens.
We had to cancel our fundraising events, but are not able to cancel our bills, so this year we especially need your donations!
Thank you for this response to Be Kind To Animals Week.

Dog of the week!
7 year old Maribella is a VERY good, happy girl. She is very active and would benefit from exercise on a daily basis, even a good “zoomie” run in the yard!Small children are not recommended as she is 60lbs and will most likely knock them over by accident. Maribella is boarded at a vet hospital and quickly became a staff favorite, but she longs for her own family and a home to call her very own.
Cat of the week!
Ollie is a sweet 2 year old male cat who was rescued from outside. He loves attention and flops over for more pets. He is very sweet and loving!
