May 2024

Hello ARF Friends!

Spring is here, the weather is warmer... most days, and the first week of May is "Be Kind to Animals Week".

Recently there has been an influx of animals being given up. Many older pets that need medical care, people moving and not being able to bring their pet with them or some rescued from outside on the streets. Many of which find their way to Animal Rescue Force for adoption.

Handsome Ray was one of those that was left outside an apartment complex, clearly he was once someone's pet as he would follow people around begging to be brought inside. Once rescued Ray unfortunately tested positive for FIV. Although not a huge deal, sometimes it can take a while for FIV cats to find homes. He was very unhappy being in a cage at our adoption center but luckily a former adopter saw him and was nice enough to take Ray on a trial adoption so that he could get used to his other pets at home. Everything worked out and now Ray has the forever home he deserves and no longer has to chase down people on the street.

For ARF to keep helping homeless cats and dogs find their loving families we need your help! The economy has strained us all and many rescues are having a very hard time keeping afloat. So, we are reaching out during, "Be Kind to Animal Week" asking you all for your help. 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 using the email

Animal Rescue Force appreciates all your continued support. From all of us at ARF and the cats and dogs looking for forever homes, thank you!

Cat of the week!


Meet Loki!!

This is Loki, it is said that Vikings were very fond of red/ginger cats, so this adorable little guy was named after a Norse god. Loki was adopted from us when he was just a little kitten (see his baby photos). He was in his home for 6 years when his owner moved in with their significant other and their cats. Loki in his previous home was on a special prescription diet because as a kitten he had crystals in his urine. When all the cats were combined it was too costly for the owner to feed this diet to all the cats so Loki was taken off the diet and started to not use the litterbox properly. He has been looked over by our vet and they suggest that he be on the prescription food, as well as being adopted to a calm home perhaps with no other cats, eventhough he does get along with them. He has been using the litterbox since he has been in his foster home and will have to be confined at first to make sure once he is adopted. Loki is a very sweet boy and deserves to get another chance to find a loving forever home. He is neutered, current on vaccinations and combo tested for FIV/FeLV. To adopt him is $90.00.
