Welcome to The Animal Rescue Front

Founded in September 2005 immediately following Hurricane Katrina, The Animal Rescue Front has never given up on the animals of the Gulf Coast. ARF is currently responsible for saving the lives of over 6,075 dogs and cats, kittens and puppies, most from the state of Mississippi where companion animal overpopulation is a crisis and legal protections minimal.

In 2017 ARF is still working in Mississippi to combat the severe pet overpopulation problem that exists there, and we continue to transport animals to homes throughout the United States. It is only with your support and generosity that we could save more. Contact us to learn more.
