ARF's Wish List

What do dogs and cats dream about? Just napping in the sun and eating tasty tidbits? Maybe they dream of some of the items on the ARF Wish List! These are items needed to help our cats and dogs heal, socialize, and find homes or to teach children about responsible pet guardianship or to bring the healing touch of animals to those in need. These may be things you or your business have outgrown or are taking up space and can be passed along to help ARF save more lives.

ARF uses a lot of the same equipment and supplies as the average business and then some! Your donation of goods enables ARF to focus our resources on the animals. All of these donations, big and small, enable ARF to continue our life-saving work each day:
