Medical Aid Program
All of the animals that you see on this site come to ARF in various ways. Rescuing animals is not just simply taking them in, feeding them and placing them in new homes. It is more complicated than that. ARF is often called to assist with animals that have been abused, are in distress or have been neglected. This includes a visit to the site or home where the animal is located, and an evaluation of the situation. If an owner is involved, they are spoken to regarding the condition of their animal and if steps are not taken to correct the situation, their animal can be seized.
In many cases, animals are just found wandering the streets in a poor state. We try to help as many of these animals as much as we can. Often, it depends on if there is a foster available to take them in.
They can be in our care for only a few days or as long as a year. We are responsible for the health care and the socialization of each of our animals. This is necessary for a successful adoption. All of this takes time, money and foster homes, without the help of people like you, this would not be possible. By donating to the Medical Aid Program, you can sponsor a dog and cover his medical bills or you can also make a simple donation towards the whole costs. If you would like to adopt donate or adopt one of these lovely companions once they are ready to be adopted please contact us.
