|Who We Are
Animal Rescue Force is a private, non-profit 501c3
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.

Big things are happening at Animal Rescue Force, Inc. thanks to the
generous grant awarded by Maddies’s Fund, www.maddiesfund.org, in the
amount of $44,750.00. ARF could not make all the changes in place and
implement one’s going forward without receipt of these funds.

and adopted in 2015
We are grateful to Maddie's Fund for their continuous
support. Finding homes for animals and reducing the pet overpopulation is
one common goal.
New computers and a printer/scanner were purchased to replace the outdated
ones in our office. 4 computers were purchased for 2 of our adoption
centers. New software was implemented and the networking of three of our
locations has started. The software will allow our volunteers to keep
track of all data for each animal at each adoption center and generate
efficient records. Adoptions and surrenders will be input via our new
tablets. This will eliminate the use of the enormous amount of paperwork
previously in place. Reports generating our surrender and adoption totals
as well as returns and benefactors will now be computerized. Training of
all our updated and newer versions of surrenders, adoptions, returns, etc.
will be ongoing.
We are going to relaunch a new website that will allow potential adopters
to fill out pre-screening forms on line. Potential volunteers will also be
able to access our volunteer applications to submit and we hope to increase
our volunteer base with this new feature. We have updated to the social
media world and our links to our Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram
pages will allow the public to share the pets for adoption on their social
media pages attracting even more adopters. You can follow us on social media
(links are provided beneath the navigation menu on the left).
With the new state of the updated systems and increased publicity, our
adoptions will increase and we are spreading the word to increase our
benefactor list and acquire new supporters to help the animals.
We have retained a fund raiser advisor. She will guide us into new fund
raising projects to increase revenue to help the animals. The expertise of
the advisor will train us to continue with fund raising events for the
