Animal Aid & Rescue Foundation

Mission

AARF is dedicated to supporting and promoting the preservation and well-being of all animals. AARF is a all-volunteer rescue group founded in 2007 that has been working with individuals, other rescue groups and animal shelters providing food and helping with vet costs. We have rescued and placed countless dogs and other small animals in to loving forever homes! While we continue our work locally, in the last several years AARF began working with rescues in the south to pull dogs from high kill shelters and find them forever homes in the Pacific Northwest. Since 80% of the dogs in these rural shelters are euthanized, we have put in place a very low cost spay/neuter program targeting people that surrender dogs and puppies to the shelter as well as anyone else that needs our assistance.

Email Networking

In the several years Animal Aid & Rescue Foundation has been in place, we have made our mark.  We are one of the few rescue organizations that has made an effort to establish a system that assists shelters, the public, rescue groups and individual rescuers in finding placements, assistance and funding.  This occurs in the form of email networking.  We organize the need in an easy to read, fact ready form and send out to hundreds on our distribution list.  We follow up on the status of the case and provide updates when available.  There is no question that by using the technology readily available to us that Animal Aid & Rescue Foundation has assisted thousands of animals through our contacts and commitment.  While we are an all-volunteer organization, we would like to create a part-time paid position to allow for more networking.

Population(s) Served

We frequently get calls from our Vet regarding people who can't afford emergency vet services, but are otherwise providing good and loving homes for their animals.  With your help, we can get these pets the treatment they need.  There are many wonderful people who don't have the savings or the credit available to be able to pay for these unexpected events.  Please consider donating to the AARF Angel Fund so they can help their pets live!

Population(s) Served

After watching dog after dog be euthanized in Louisiana, we realized we couldn't adopt our way out of the overpopulation mess. So, 3 years ago, we collaborated with Louisiana Lifeline 4k9s and launched a low cost spay and neuter program to help curb the flow of unwanted pets into the shelters. May 2018 marked our 500th spay/neuter and we are so thrilled! Our program is gaining tracking through social media and television spots, our most recent event was our Pretty Pitty Spay event to offer free spaying to all Pit and Pit mixes as they are the breed that is most euthanized in the shelters.
