Our Wish List

Animal Rights Fur-ever (ARF) is a small "pack" of dedicated volunteers organized in June, 2010, to improve our community by improving the lives of animals in Jackson County, WV.  Membership is open to all who care about animals and who will rise above differences and personalities and work together against pet overpopulation, abuse, and neglect.  This non-profit group will find responsible homes for animals; rescue animals; sponsor fund-raising events to support animal welfare and public education; cooperate with local officials and other animal welfare groups whose goals and methods are compatible with our own, and assist Jackson County Animal Shelter by maintaining Petfinder, holding adoptathons, transporting rescued animals, etc.
