JOIN THE CELEBRATION! 10,000 PETS RESCUED
On Feb. 6 ARF rescued its 10,000th pet from an area shelter and will place it for adoption to a responsible owner! After more than 25 years of rescuing homeless pets, we're super excited to reach this milestone. Help us celebrate by adopting a pet or, if you can't do that, send us a donation so that we can rescue another 10,000!
We're proud to have pulled our 10,000th animal from the shelter. Mr. 10,000 is a Newfoundland mix with a fractured leg and a broken pelvis. His bones will be set and he'll be vaccinated, neutered, and micro-chipped. Plus, he'll get tons of love from our ARF volunteers! Poor baby was probably hit by a car. Did you know that injured dogs are most often euthanized? Also, black dogs are also at the top of the euthanization list. This little guy had at least two strikes against him -- but he's ARF's kind of special.
We had a contest to win Mr. 10,000, and the winning name is 10K (TenKay). Out of a couple of dozen names, it was narrowed down to half a dozen. 10K won the most votes!
10K is healing from his broken bones and doing fine. Hopefully, he'll be ready to adopt in a few weeks!

Do you like cats and kittens?
We need volunteers to help us keep our cats and kittens happy at the PetSmart on 41st between Yale and Sheridan. It only requires an hour or so of your time once a week and you'll be helping cats and kittens find new homes and a second chance at happiness.
Fill out a volunteer form today. Thanks!
