Important Note

Dora is best friends with Dottie. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
She was first spotted by a teller at a local bank. Dora and her sister Dottie were small kittens, playing in the drive-through lane. Concerned for their safety, the teller contacted AARF and the pair of sisters found their way to safety. For a long time they were very scared of and unsure of the people who were caring for them. They have gotten more accomstomed to receiving love, though at times they still will run when you try to pet them. Dora is quite a beauty with her silver gray fur and black stripes. Her sweet face with those big eyes must be seen in person to truly appreciate. Despite her shyness around people, this little girl is quite the "spitfire". She races and romps with the other kitties in her foster home, but her favorite playmate is her sister Dottie. These 2 girls need to find a forever home together.

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.
