Who We Are

Animal Rescue Force is a private, non-profit 501c3 organization established in 1974 to find responsible homes for dogs and cats and to encourage all dog and cat owners to spay and neuter their pets. We are not funded by the town or government and rely on donations and fund raising events run by volunteers as means of support. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law. Tax ID #51-0137896.

Now you can make a secure, tax deductible, credit card donation using the GiveDirect link above.  Just click on the GiveDirect image above.  You will be sent to an online form from GiveDirect.  From there, just fill in the form with your credit card information and the amount that you want to donate to help homless pets find their forever homes.  You will receive a confirmation email for your records and our heartfelt thanks for your generous gift.

Big things are happening at ARF made possible by a grant from Maddie’s Fund, ARF has started the planning of setting up a data base from the office to 2 of our adoption center locations, Petsmart and Sayreville. Computers are getting installed at each location and new software set up to provide pre-screening applications, adoptions and surrender forms online. This will eliminate a lot of physical paper and act more efficiently to keep our statistics in top order required by category.

Also in the works is a relaunch of our website. We plan on adding user friendly categories and attracting many new adopters and volunteers to help increase our adoptions of dogs and cats and find animal loving people to help achieve this goal. In addition we are working on the next phase of increasing our fund raising events and donations.

We are very excited about all of the changes that will take place this year and could not be more grateful to Maddie’s Fund for making this all possible. To see our accomplishments and statistics of all the animals we rescued and adopted in 2015 click here.
