In 2008, ARF opened a spay/neuter clinic that will perform at
least 5,000 low-cost surgeries per year. Other clinics have
used this model to reduce their local euthanasia rates up to
75%. For our service area, that translates to over 6,000 lives
saved per year at a cost savings of approximately $450,000 per
ARF was founded in 2003 and has helped low-income pet owners
and rescuers pay vet bills and spay/neuter their animals, rescued
and adopted out approximately 250 dogs and cats, and spay/neutered,
vaccinated and returned to their colonies over 400 feral cats.
ARF's founders live and work in Hampton, Newport News, York,
Gloucester, Mathews, and Middlesex.
Rescue groups, Humane Societies and SPCAs do their utmost to
increase adoption numbers, but until the population coming into
facilities is controlled, there will continue to be more animals
coming in than going out. That means healthy, adoptable dogs
and cats are killed to make room. (Click

spay/neuter is the only proven solution!
Animal Resource Foundation's Mission is to provide high-quality,
affordable, spay/neuter surgeries as the non-lethal solution
to pet over-population.
