Appalachian Animal Refuge/Rescue is an organization dedicated to helping abused, abandoned or otherwise needy animals. We provide love, shelter, medical services and adoptions for cats and ferals. We support our local feral cat colonies and promote the use our local low cost spay/neuter clinic. Our mission is prevention of cruelty to all animals and the extension of humane education. Volunteers and Foster Homes are always needed. If you cannot volunteer time, donations in any amount would be greatly appreciated and used for the upkeep of our shelter cats and pets in our foster homes. Send to the P.O. Box above. Since we are a "NO KILL" Shelter we are full and cannot take in any more cats at this time. The more we adopt out, the more we can take in. So please consider us when looking for your new pet! We also now have dogs for adoption! Updated pics coming soon or see us on FB at www.facebook.com/AARrescue or follow us on Twitter at AARrescue Make pet adoption your first option! WE CAN'T SAVE THEM ALL....WITHOUT YOUR HELP!

Our Adoption Process:
We hope to have most of our animals listed soon. Please let us know if you are looking for a specific breed or color etc. We have a lot of refuge cats that aren't listed yet. Always make pet adoption your first option! Applications are provided in order to help us pick the pet most suitable for you. Call or email for applications. All adoptions are by contract to ensure our animals go to a safe and loving home. Fees range from $25.00 to $100.00 depending on vaccinations or if the animal has been altered. If an animal has received extensive medical care past initial vaccines, health checks, and spay/neuter surgery the amount will be listed. We only ask for reimbursement of our costs in order to keep costs low and adoptions high.
