Thank you for your interest in making a difference to our furry friends. When you donate to NARF, you are helping to provide food, necessary medical attention and foster homes, but more importantly… LOVE. Approximately 95% of the donations go directly to the care of animals in need. More than ever, pets are being abandoned because families are no longer able to care for them. We need as much support as possible to help provide these animals with quality homes. NARF asks that you please consider supporting our efforts to help animals in crisis by participating in our donation program described below. By working together we can make a major difference in the lives of many abandoned, abused, injured, and lost animals. On behalf of those animals who will benefit from your kindness and generosity, we most sincerely thank you for your donation.

Choose A Fund

NARF has six different funds you can donate to. All donations are tax-deductible.


The general fund allows NARF to rescue, rehabilitate and secure loving adoptive homes for hundreds of companion animals annually. Additionally, this fund is crucial to NARF's continued success in educating our community about conscientious animal care, loving behavior modification, and the vital importance of spaying and neutering.

Honorary and Memorial

These honorary and respectful gifts further all of NARF's life-saving programs, while honoring and remembering loved ones and friends--both the two-legged and four-legged varieties. NARF will send gift announcement cards and acknowledgements. Please provide name(s) and address(es) for appropriate and timely recognition of your generous gift.
