About Yonah
Hi, my name is Yonah (pronounced Ya-na). I was named after a type of salamander, the Yonahlossee salamander. I am eight years old, and in great health. I am extremely sweet and loving and enjoy chin rubs and being pet. I am still very lively and playful for an eight year old cat. I will play with toy mice, I like cat games on mommy's tablet, and will play with a laser pointer or just about any toy you give me. I am accustomed to being the queen of the household, and have spent a lot of time as the only cat. I have been around an older male cat, and have done OK with that. I have never been around dogs or small children. I love food! Food is the way to my heart.

I am spayed, current on shots, FeLV/FIV negative, and I am microchipped.

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.
