We’re in the business of saving lives. By donating, so are you.

AARF relies on public donations to fund medical, training, and other care costs to accomplish our life-saving work. As an all-volunteer, foster-based organization, we keep overhead costs razor thin – meaning, your donations go directly to the cats and dogs in our care. All donations are tax-deductible.

AARF spent over $263,522 on medical bills in 2020. Donors like you make this possible.

In-Kind Gifts

Our community drives us! AARF holds fundraising events and appreciates donations from local businesses or individuals to offer as prizes, raffles, or to sell in our largest event of the year, the AARF Online Auction. Through your donations of goods or services, we can raise critical funds to care for the animals. Contact us to learn more at

Employer Matches

Did you know many companies will make donations matching their employees’ charitable gifts? Some employers will even make cash contributions to match their employees’ volunteer service hours! Charity Navigator provides a helpful tool to determine if your employer offers matching gifts. Employer-matched gifts are a great way to make your gifts go further!
