New Friends, New Opportunities

As most of you are aware, AARF volunteers have been slowing down on intake to concentrate on completing our no kill shelter facility.  This has been very difficult for most of us, since our passion in life IS saving these animals from life threatening situations.  So when a new friend called this morning and said “Hey….I have a solution to your shelter situation”, we rushed to the scene immediately to see this solution.

This new friend, currently remaining anonymous, has offered a part of their barn that was previously used years ago for pigs.  The stalls are setup already, and it sits on concrete – exactly what we need for an immediate solution!  We spent the day cleaning the area up, while the guys worked on removing the pen dividers, making plans to turn the electric back on, run water to this part of the barn, and create proper drainage for the pens.

We cannot express our appreciation enough to this kind family who has made our dream a reality.  We expect to start intake once again in the next month, and will continue on our path to assist and support local animal shelters in our region.

This space will really help us get up and going! But with this new opportunity will come a new wishlist of things that we will need; especially more foster homes and supplies for this new space. Donations of dog crates / kennels and Kuranda Dog Beds are also needed.
