How We Help
ARF relies on our community of animal lovers to carry our mission forward every day. Our mission and our relationship with Everett Animal Shelter allows us to help out where there is most need through our Medical and Enrichment Fund as well as our Outreach and Adoption Team.
Medical and Enrichment Fund
This covers everything from diagnostic medical care to more complicated surgeries. Ben, the St. Bernard pictured below, came into the Everett Animal Shelter with a broken leg after escaping the fenced in yard he lived in. When the owner couldn't cover the cost of his surgery, they turned to the shelter to take him in. ARF helped cover the costs of his surgery and he found a forever home with acres to play on and lots of four-legged brothers and sisters. Our fund covers hundreds of animals like Ben who just need that extra care to before finding their new families.

Outreach and Adoption Team
In addition to funding medical care, we also attend adoption events at local pet stores. We not only get the word about about adopting shelter animals, but it also get the animals out there that need an extra boost in finding that perfect home.
Instead of losing their mittens, these three little kittens found their forever homes at the Mukilteo Mud Bay!
