 An AARF Benefit 
Friday, June 9, 2017
6 PM to 9 PM
The Barn at Reynolda
106 Reynolda Rd Winston-Salem, NC





 At AARF we believe there is a home for every cat and dog we take in. This week we would like your help to find Cindy a home. She has lived at the AARF house for over four years waiting for her own forever home. She was rescued from animal control in 2013 because she was such a sweet girl they did not want to put her to sleep. Why hasn't Cindy been adopted, you ask? She needs to be an only cat. Living with the many cats at the AARF house is a bit stressful, she doesn't show her best side and someone else gets adopted. Her best side is when she gets alone with a person she likes, away from the other cats. She is a happy, playful and entertaining cat, full of love and life. During an adoption fair with lots of people and lots of cats, people never meet the real Cindy. She is a great cat and would be a good companion for the right home. Help us find Cindy's forever home by sharing her story. Stop by 311 Harvey St, Winston Salem to meet her or contact daubertla@aol.com for more information on this big beautiful girl.


Rebecca's very own 4 week old darlings! 


 AARF's very own X-Men Kittens are the feature for Turesday, May 2nd! Please check out the basket of sweetness!

















AARF has recently negotiated an agreement to partner with PetSmart so that we are able to have cats in their adoption centers at both the Hanes Mall Blvd.location and Hanes Mill Rd. stores. This is a great benefit to have at least ten cats that can be shown for adoption at high traffic places with longer hours than our AARF house location. PetSmart has also been kind enough to give us large boxes of food, litter and toys for our house cats. We greatly appreciate this opportunity to work with PetSmart to get even more cats and kittens adopted into great homes! Thank you PetSmart!!!!

DSH Solid Black 

DOB March 2017

Chance is the last one left from his litter and he is ready for his new furever home! He is a bit shy at first, but loves to be snuggles on. He will act like he doesn't want to be picked up but gives a glance back to make sure that you are coming!
Change gets along great with his other foster mates and thinks he is a big kitty. He is a real sweetheart who wants to be loved. Chance is current on all vaccinations and is scheduled to be neutered. Contact his foster mom at dishdd@aol.com or 336-414-2648 to swoop in and adopt him before someone else gets this terrific guy!




Date of Birth March 31, 2017

DMH Black with White Markings



This is Rogue of the X-Men. Beware, he will absorb your memories and your powers and use them to make hisself into your perfect kitten with the power to love you right into adopting him! If you don't want this to happen, then don't touch him! Rogue will be ready on May 26th to go home with the person that is brave enough (and lucky enough) to touch him and fall under his spell. Contact his Foster Mom, Crystal at 336-253-8001 or crystal.aarf@gmail.com for an appointment to touch him and fall in love forever! Date of birth 3/31/17
