Berea ARF is a no-time-limit animal rescue providing shelter, love and care for stray and homeless animals for as long as it takes to place them into forever homes.
We receive no federal or municipal funding; we’re supported solely through adoptions, fundraisers and donations from generous supporters.
ARF is currently offering open hours on Tuesdays & Fridays 3:30-6pm and Saturdays & Sundays 1-4pm.
We are still conducting adoptions by appointment on other days of the week. To schedule an appointment to visit a dog, please contact the adoption consultant listed in the dog’s biography.
To schedule an appointment to visit a cat, please contact email@example.com or call 440-223-1275.

ARF is committed to helping families and pets stay together, and we wholeheartedly believe that no family or individual should feel the need to surrender their pet because of temporary financial hardship.
Our Pet Pantry is here to support members of our surrounding communities who need assistance in providing food for their pets. As our supplies of donated food allow, we offer wet and dry dog food, cat food and kitty litter on a weekly basis to families in need. More details.Learn More
