There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays!

It’s time for Animal Rescue Foundation’s Holiday Foster Program! 

What is the Holiday Foster Program?

The program started as an idea several years ago to empty the kennels at the ARFanage to give the hard working volunteers an opportunity to spend the holidays with their loved ones without worrying about the ARFans alone on Christmas. No one at ARF knew how good it would feel to have all of the ARFans in a home at Christmas…an unexpected benefit, and the program stuck! 

ARF wants to find holiday homes again this year and all of us at Walks and Wags want to help!  You see, for some dogs at the ARFanage, they’ve never known the feeling of stretching out for a nap in the warm afternoon sun on the living room rug or snuggling in someone’s arms after a lunch of turkey and cheese sandwiches. The attention given by the foster families is good for the souls of dogs and people alike. 

If you would like to participate in ARF’s holiday foster program, please email Lynn Carter or visit ARF’s website. Please note holiday foster program on the application, along with the dog you’re interested in fostering. 

All dogs should be picked up from the ARFanage by 5:00pm on December 23rd  and returning starting any time after noon on December 26th. Your foster doggy is welcome to stay with you through the New Year…or longer.

As always, thank you for your support of ARF. May your holidays be blessed with peace, love, and joy.
