Kiss “Chuck” for a $Buck

A.A.R.F. will hold a special Valentines Day Fundraiser/event on Saturday, February 13 2010 at PETCO in Cookeville.  All of our adoptable pets will be there waiting to find their forever homes – hoping to find the love of their life – YOU!  For a donation, we will have special hand-made valentine hearts available, and our second annual “Kiss Chuck for a $Buck”.  Chuck, a tall, dark and devistatingy handsome Lab mix will be waiting to give YOU all the kisses you can handle…but it will cost you!  Chuck is asking for $1 for all the kisses you want from him – and thanking you for saving his life.  Chuck is a PARVO survivor.  Without A.A.R.F., Chuck never would have survived.    Now A.A.R.F. needs you to help us help the next one…All proceeds will be used towards PARVO treatment bills from January 2010, and future special needs medical treatment expenses if amount raised exceeds liability.

Chuck is a 10-12 Week Young Black Lab Mix Pup and is available for adoption.


The City of Cookeville Leisure Services Department is proud to present DOGAPALOOZA AT DOGWOOD PARK!  This event will consist of various animal demonstrations, an off-leash play area, vendors, activities for owners and dogs, educational areas and will end with a live music concert by “Jokers Wild”.  Come visit A.A.R.F.  here, on Saturday, May 15th from 1-5PM!  Admission is $2 per person, 12 and under FREE!

PETCO Adoption Days every Saturday

Come Meet Your New Pet!

We are at PETCO in Cookeville, Tennessee every Saturday between the hours of Noon and 6PM with some of our available animals. If weather permits, and is not too hot or cold, we are setup under tents outside of PETCO. During the summer and winter months, you can find us inside of the store. Some of our cats are housed in the feline habitat inside the PETCO store and can be seen and pre-adopted on a daily basis during PETCO store hours.

Black Ties and Tails was a success

Every Saturday in September

In an effort to draw attention to the unconscious act of discrimination of dogs and cats based on color, all black cats, kittens and dogs will have a reduced adoption fee of only $25 to approved homes. Visit us at PETCO every Saturday noon-6PM to adopt your new best friend!
