How to Help


Volunteer - Want to help?  We have several things you can do.

There are multiple ways you can volunteer to help ARF.  Some opportunities to volunteer include helping organize fundraiser events, grant research and writing, Trap-Neuter/Spay-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) clinics for feral and stray cats, make fundraising craft items, and local community awareness events.  Please contact, if you wish to become an ARF volunteer.  



Foster - Care for a bundle of joy until we find it a home.

Fostering saves lives!  When there are homeless cats/kittens/dogs/puppies, the need for foster volunteers is tremendous.  If you have room in your home and your heart to provide a temporary safe home, care and love to a pet in need, please fill out a foster application form to be on ARF's list of foster volunteers.  ARF will help you get set up to care for these pets in need until they can be adopted to a forever home locally or transferred to a shelter for adoption.  For questions or if interested, please contact ARF's Foster Program Coordinators at (208) 507-1226 or (503) 830-3751.




Of course, financial donations to help support ARF are greatly appreciated, but there are other ways to donate to help the animals as well.  Please check our ARF's wish lists on or for items that can be used for animals in need, such as food, cat litter, pet beds, flea medicine, etc. 


Did you know Amazon Smile will donate 0.5% to ARF for every purchase you make?  You can signup to AmazonSmile and choose our Animal Rescue Foundation as the non-profit to receive a donation from AmazonSmile.  Just make your purchases through Amazon Smile and ARF will receive a donation.
