Animal Relief Fund (ARF)
What started out as a simple act of kindness by the already-kind Yorkville Food Pantry in November 2008 with help from attorney Susan Kaufman has now evolved into its own organization. ARF's mission is keeping pets with their families and reduce the number of abandoned dogs and cats by distributing pet food to local food pantries which serve New York families in need. ARF has now partnered with several pet stores throughout the New York area where food donations are accepted on an ongoing basis.
For donation locations please visit www.arf-ny.org. If you or a friend need help please don't be shy, visit www.arf-ny.org/where.html.
