About Shelby
My name is Shelby. As you can see I am quite beautiful. You can't tell from my portraits, but I am a van brown tabby -- I have brown tabby markings on my head and tail. The rest of my coat is white!
My sister, Willow, and I were found in a woodpile as tiny kittens. Some hunting dogs were trying to get us. A nice man rescued us from the dogs and brought us in to AARF. I went to what I thought would be a permanent home with a little girl and three small dogs. My little girl became more and more allergic and my family couldn't keep me. So now I'm looking for a new home. Please contact my foster mom Diane at 336-918-7741 or for more information about me.
DOB 7/23/2012

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.
