2016 was a big year for ARF. With the generous grant received in the amount of $44,750.00 from Maddie's Fund,, we were able to make huge changes in the organization. We installed new computers, tablets and printers at our adoption centers. A data base connecting all our locations including our office has been set up. Our surrenders, adopters, and benefactors are now input into our new system. Training sessions were held to teach our volunteers the ins and outs of the new data base.

Besides setting us up on social media and keeping it up to date, our fundraising specialist brought back our largest fundraiser, the Trick Tray, which was held on April 22, 2017, to a sold-out crowd! Our happy adopters and their testimonials make what we do well worth it. Click here [unlined] for our happy tails. Click here for our happy tales.
