Located on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, and 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 7,349 dogs and cats, kittens and puppies, most from the state of Mississippi where companion animal overpopulation is a crisis and legal protections minimal.
