About Nova
NOVA … a very sweet, black and white [“tuxedo”] female kitty, likely 5-7 years old.
She is spayed, declawed, up to date on her inoculations. She was dropped off one night at AARF W-S, with no information except that her original owner needed a nursing facility and her new home included another kitty, hostile to Nova. She has been in foster care since 2013, and has adapted well to living with another [male] kitty. Her disposition is good. She is sweet, purrs readily, and can be quite the “lap cat.” Earlier, she had some medical difficulties, but these have been resolved with veterinary attention and her health is good. She has lived in an adults-only household since her rescue. Her [admittedly biased] foster would call Nova “a sweetheart.” Make no mistake, she is also an active kitty who enjoys some jolly good playtime. Contact us for more information about Nova or to arrange to visit her.

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.
