AAARF's Mission:

To rescue, rehabilitate and rehome homeless animals and educate the public about responsible pet guardianship. AAARF works closely with our potential adopters to minimize returns and stress on the animals. In the rare case it is not a perfect match, we offer our adopters an unconditional return policy. Since AAARF started in April 1997, we have taken in over 8,000 homeless animals and placed them in permanent loving homes.

The AAARF Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to close our shelter in Auburn and return to using foster homes and doing mobile adoptions. It is no longer economically feasible to keep the shelter open. With the use of social marketing we find that we are able to do adoptions by networking through Petfinder and Facebook without the added cost of running a shelter. We are very grateful to our supporters, volunteers and adopters who have seen us through the last sixteen years and helped us care for over 8,000 animals.

AAARF's Adoption Fees Include:

All animals that come to AAARF for adoption are microchipped with HomeAgain microchips, spayed or neutered, have been given age-appropriate vaccines, de-wormed, and are flea-free. All AAARF animals have been examined by a licensed Veterinarian. Dogs are tested for heartworm disease and are confirmed negative prior to adoption. Cats are tested for FeLV/FIV and are confirmed negative prior to adoption. All adopters are given a free Veterinary exam voucher to use at a participating Vet of their choice.
