ARF is an animal welfare organization that services the town of Rincon, Puerto Rico that began 14 years ago in the face of a sad incident. It was started by a handfull of devoted volunteers that would rescue and find homes for dogs and cats. Since then, it has evolved to focus on eradicating animal overpopulation. Hence, its year-round low-cost spay/neuter voucher program. It also hosts special one-day Health Day community events where a regional vet administers vaccinations while ARF volunteers schedule spay/neuter appointments. In 2010, ARF services over 730 dogs and cats!

Our Adoption Process:
ARF is not a shelter nor does it have foster homes. Animal rescuers that contact ARF are asked to temporarily foster the animals. Whiles fostered animals are recuperating from the immunization and spay/neuter process, the foster family is re socializing, nurturing and providing affection. In the adoption program, ARF pays 100% for immunization, deworming, medicines for deworming and earmites. It also pays 100% for spaying/neutering. ARF places pictures/bio of each adoptable animal in various resources: facebook, poster, PetFinder.com and in a local publication. It also showcases these animals at the PetSmart Retail store in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Postential adopting families are screened and must pass an evaluation process to ensure they have the means, facilities and capacity to maintain a new pet. ARF charges a small adoption fee of $25.
