About Animal Resource Foundation, Inc.
About Our Rescue Group...
Animal Resource Foundation, Inc. (ARF) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We are a rescue group dedicated to saving and improving the lives of animals.
Most of our animals come from shelters. The animals we usually choose to come into our organization are the ones that are on the list to be euthanized due to space, medical attention, minor behavior problems, shyness, etc. These animals are then placed in a foster home to be rehabilitated. Once we feel they are ready to go to a new home we place them up for adoption.
The staff and volunteers of ARF, have one thing in common....Our love for animals!
Come Meet Our Pets...
ARF's Adoption Center is located in Chester, Maryland in the Kent Narrow Center (formerly Kent Narrows Outlets).
Our Adoption Center provides prospective adopters the opportunity to interact with our animals in a home-like atmosphere. This facility will provide education, socialization and basic obedience training. This new program will help homeless animals find the loving homes they deserve and reduce the overpopulation of unwanted animals.
As of 2011, we are open 5 days a week with evening hours. Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12-6, Tuesday and Thursday Closed, Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 11-5.
Our Adoption Process...
Before ARF adopts to anyone, we require an adoption application to be filled out. Once that is approved we arrange to bring the animal to your home for a home visit.
