About Rocky
Hi, Please stop and say hello.
My name is Rocky. I am a sweet, lovable, whacky kitty and would love to have a permanent home to call my own. I was left behind when my previous owners moved, and the nice 'cat lady' in the neighborhood picked me up and has been caring for me. I get along with other cats, but not so much dogs. I am quite the conversationalist, but don't so much meow as 'trill'.
I am FIV positive, but am a very healthy cat and haven't been sick even though I do have FIV. I can live a very long and happy life and would like to share that life with you. All I need is a good diet and maybe some vitamins. If you have any questions about my FIV status, you can speak with my caretaker.

About Animal Adoption and Rescue Foundation, Inc. (AARF)

About Our Rescue Group...

Mission Statement: AARF aids homeless and helpless cats and dogs in the greater Winston-Salem area: providing rescue and adoption services, while encouraging the human/animal bond.

Strategic Focus Area: Neglected, homeless and abused companion animals, and the pets whose owners have either gone to nursing homes or are deceased.

History: Animal Adoption and Rescue Foundation, Inc. (AARF) was incorporated in 1995 as a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization to assist animals and people in the community through adoption services and rescue operations. AARF is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and is supported by 136 regular volunteers who work tirelessly, and other 'as needed' volunteers who participate in special events/fundraisers to implement the AARF mission. We also have 10 volunteer veterinarians who work with us to support our goals.

Other Accomplishments: AARF works with local veterinarians to hold several Rabies Clinics per year. Public education on animal care and pet owner responsibility is a priority. We also rescue suitable animals from euthanasia.
