The Animal Rescue Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for companion animals and their caretakers in Snohomish County through increased community involvement and fundraising with and for the Everett Animal Shelter.

ARF’s Focus

ARF was established in 2005 to support the work of the Everett Animal Shelter (EAS), Snohomish County’s largest and only open-admission shelter. Through fundraising, adoption events and education, ARF has spread public awareness about the Everett Shelter and the important work it does for animals and the community in Snohomish County. ARF is uniquely poised to provide assistance directly to the animals who most need it by funding medical expenses that fall outside the shelter’s budget. In 2010, ARF donated $40,000 to fully equip the Vet Surgery & Clinic in the new EAS shelter facility at Langus Park. In 2011 we pledged another $70,000 to be given over three years for the ongoing expenses of the Vet Surgery & Clinic.

In addition to the $110,000 we have provided for the clinic, we help every month with outside services for the animals such as laboratory and imaging expenses. To further help with this, we are committed to buying the shelter their own digital x-ray machine in 2014. For more information on this, be sure to like us on Facebook to receive updates.
