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 8,000 square foot 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.
