Saving Lives, Making Friends
We receive no federal or municipal funding; we’re supported solely through adoptions, fundraisers and donations from generous supporters.
Adopt from ARF
As an adopter of a rescue pet from ARF, you’re giving a homeless animal the second chance at happiness they deserve.
New Shelter Fund
Help ARF save more homeless animals with a new, larger shelter facility. We’re halfway to our goal.
Make a Difference
You can make a difference in the lives of homeless, neglected and abandoned animals! Donate to ARF’s animals today.
Berea Animal Rescue Friends is a no-time-limit animal shelter, in operation since 1987, which rescues stray and homeless companion animals, provides medical care, spay/neuter, vaccinations and housing, and prepares animals for adoption into loving homes.
Our 300-plus volunteers and small staff work tirelessly to place over 1,000 animals into forever homes each year to give them the chance at happiness they deserve.
New Shelter Update
Over $1.2 million has been raised to date toward the building of ARF’s new shelter facility. Our 16 acres of beautiful land in Columbia Township has been surveyed and soil-tested by architects FMD and the blueprints for our new facility are in the process of being drafted. Your help is still needed to make our new shelter a reality!
Perfect Memorial for Your Loved One
Now available – Paver Bricks are a perfect and lasting way to support the new shelter fund and memorialize your family name or loved one. We’re now taking orders for these custom-imprinted pavers, which will be displayed in a special area at our new facility for all to see.
Donate your Car to ARF and receive a free Paver
Donate your vehicle to ARF by December 31 and receive a free Paver Brick at the new shelter! The Cars for ARF program accepts cars, trucks, motorcycles and RVs — operational or not. We’ll even tow them away for you. Contact ArfDevelopmentDirector@gmail.
