About Valentina
Signorina Valentina is a recently spayed female dilute calico with pewter, buff and peach on white. She is estimated to be a bit over a year old, so she was probably born in late 2014 or early 2015.
She has large expressive eyes. Her coat pattern is strikingly unique, with several prominent heart shapes and a "fish" evident. If you believe in signs, you'll agree that she is truly a blessed cat, hand-painted by God. She is a devoted mother to her son Buff-Puff, and would love to be adopted with him, if possible.
Valentina loves to talk and will respond when engaged in conversation, she is very sociable and eager for your approval. She is playful and athletic, enjoys her dinner and a tidy letterbox. She will sidle up to you for a nice patting session. She wants to make friends with other cats, but will need a gradual, proper introduction.

You can meet and visit with many of our cats at the AARF House (311 Harvey St, Winston Salem) during our adoption fair hours. Go to for information about our adoption fair hours and adoption process.

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.
