Woohoo! AARF received 18 applications for puppies and doggies at the AAA event on September 10th!

All the Famous Authors litter will be going to their new homes this week.
We would like to give special thanks to Amanda Notorfonzo and her wonderful staff for their hospitality.

Update on fundraising efforts! We are up to $690 of the $1000 we need to do the initial heartworm treatment for these 4 dogs. 

As you may know, some rescue groups do not even accept heartworm positive dogs into their programs because of the expense of treating them. Can you help us with a donation to AARF? If you wish to donate through, click the DONATE button on the right of this page and add a note that it is for heartworm treatment. Checks can be mailed or brought to AARF, just be sure to mark heartworm + dogs! Thanks for all the donations!


Smokin' Harley Davidson is holding a special event on October 8, 2016 with benefits coming to AARF. If you, or someone you know, is interested in having a booth, please contact them now!


Call Bill Dotson at 336-790-5026 for more information
