Want to help more cats like Smokey, the Coors Field Cat?

Your donation helps animals get the second chances they deserve! That’s because your gift goes directly toward rescuing homeless pets from unsafe living conditions outside and helping overcrowded shelters place pets in our caring foster homes.  Your gift helps save more lives by providing needed veterinary care including spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchipping before pets are adopted into their forever homes.

Can't adopt right now but still want to help save animals?

PLEASE NOTE:  ARR does not accept owner surrendered pets.  Our focus is to help pets already in overcrowded shelters. Please click here for a list of resources if you need to rehome your pet. We regret that we can’t respond to owner surrender requests due to the high volume of calls and emails we receive.
