Our mission is to “inspire a community where people value animals”. Our vision is to create a place where all dogs and cats have a loving home in which to live out their natural lives. We share a vision of a better future where animals play the unique role in making the world a better place for people. The Everett Shelter has been working diligently for the past two years to lower its euthanasia rate of adoptable animals, but they can’t do it alone. In the past three years they have built up a rescue network of over 100 rescues to help alleviate the over crowding. In 2005 the shelter started a Foster Program to help place animals who need time to heal or more time to find a home.
We want to help stop the euthanasia of adoptable animals who have easily treatable ailments and are facing death because there is no money in the budget. This is just one of the amazing projects ARF is working on right now.
