Summer 2023


Hello ARF friends!


Summer is almost here, well some days…


May 7th-13th was “Be Kind to Animal Week”. Animal Rescue Force strives to be kind to animals every week and not only one.


ARF has had several animals recently that have needed a little bit of extra kindness and because of supporters like you we have been able to give them the care they needed.


Forks was TNR’d (Trap, Neuter, Released) as a stray but was brought to a local shelter to find a home because she was so friendly. Unfortunately, she found herself sitting in the shelter for months being overlooked because of her eye issues. Animal Rescue Force took her in and despite having a cloudy eye and a ruptured eye that needed removal, a very nice couple adopted her and gave her a loving home. ARF collected donations to have Forks’ expensive eye surgery done and now she is living happily and comfortably because of our generous donors.


Peppy, a cute, older Shih Tzu mix was found by a good Samaritan. He was wandering the streets not using one of his back legs. They took him to the vet to see what was wrong but couldn’t afford the care he needed. ARF took him for a second opinion and the vet determined that his leg had to be amputated due to nerve damage. Soon after Peppy was able to go home to his new adopter who has adopted several other senior dogs from ARF in the past.


So again, we are reaching out asking for everyone’s continued support so ARF can keep helping these deserving cats and dogs. Any amount big or small makes a difference in these pets’ lives. Donations can be made by check, credit card by going to our website and clicking on the GiveDirect link or by PayPal by using the email  ARF appreciates all of you for your continuted love and support. On behalf of ARF and the cats and dogs looking for forever homes, we thank you!

Cat of the week!


Meet adorable 1 yr old Chloe!


Hi, I'm Chloe. I was found outside with my mom and sister when I was a tiny little kitten. My sister has already found a new home but I have been waiting so long to find a forever family. I'm not sure why, I have a fun-loving personality, love to play and am very adventurous! I get along well with other kitty friends but I have never been around dogs so I may be afraid at first. I am very friendly so I would probably be ok with kids. If you have some room in your home and heart come meet me at ARF this weekend.
