Ashland Animal Rescue Fund, Inc., (AARF) is a 501c3 non-profit corporation that strives to reduce the number of euthanized companion pets in the local dog pounds by networking them to no-kill shelters, animal rescues, and sanctuaries. AARF is staffed by a group of dedicated volunteers that focus on reducing the number of euthanized cats and dogs in the Ashland, Kentucky area.
Our organization also provides medical care for animals in need that would otherwise suffer without proper medical attention.
Finally, in an effort to reduce the pet overpopulation, we also ensure that all companion animals “networked” to appropriate rescues are spay/neutered before going to rescue, unless age or existing medical condition prevents such alteration. AARF is comprised of volunteers who love animals, and are dedicating to saving lives by offering these animals second chances.
AARF is a private shelter. We pull last chance animals from surrounding pounds. We vet them and then move them on to reputable, no-kill shelter for adoption. Unfortunately, limited funds prevent us from monetarily assisting with personal pets.
