Animals with Special Needs

Perhaps you have a special place in your home for an ARF dog or cat with special needs? Or perhaps you have a special place in your heart to make a donation to ARF’s Hope Fund to help these and other ARF animals like them?

ARF’s Hope Fund helps pay for veterinary and other special needs of animals rescued by ARF's rescue patrol. Helping these abandoned animals is an important part of ARF's mission. Although the expense may be cost prohibitive for these ARF shelter guests, the transformation is nothing short of a miracle. Only through your generous donations can ARF continue this life-enriching work.

Available Now for Adoption!


5-month-old Emma is one adorable kitten who is up for anything! Having one eye doesn't slow her down one bit, as she loves to play and be around her people.

She is suitable for a first time cat guardian. Emma must be an indoor only cat.

Available Now for Adoption!


2-year-old Cheese is a big solid dude who is so loving and cute! He will bring much joy to his new family. He is suitable for a first time cat guardian.

Cheese is FIV* positive but that doesn't stop him from being a very adorable, sweet guy! He must be an indoor only cat and can only live with other FIV positive cats.

Cheese's adoption fee has been prepaid by a generous donor.

*Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)

FIV is a virus in the same family of viruses as Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV). FIV is a cat-only disease and people cannot catch FIV from their cats. FIV is only spread between cats by bite wounds and blood transfusions. FIV cannot be spread casually - unless an FIV kitty bites another cat, the virus cannot spread. There is no reason cats with FIV should not be in loving homes. FIV cats can often live long and normal lives. Some cats live a long time with this virus, often with no symptoms at all. FIV cats have a lot to offer a family and should not prevent a delightful feline from coming into a loving home.
