Animal Relief and Rescue Fellowship (ARRF)
The mission of Animal Relief and Rescue Fellowship, an all-volunteer organization, is to provide responsible, humane care and treatment of animals from the city of Leland and the surrounding unincorporated county area. Our goals to achieve this purpose are: To provide medical treatment for all animals in our care that are sick or injured To operate an adoption program which places all adoptable animals in responsible, loving homes To make sure that all animals in our care are spayed or neutered before going into an adoptive home unless they are too young for the procedure To follow up with adoptive parents of unaltered puppies to make sure they are spayed or neutered at the appropriate time To help facilitate a low cost spay and neuter program for area residents in need To humanely euthanize, and only when necessary, those animals that are not deemed adoptable by a majority of Board Members. Euthanasia will be performed according to the guidelines of the Humane Society of the United States To educate people of all ages regarding the humane treatment of animals To build a state-of-the-art animal shelter in an accessible location which will also serve as a model for other shelters to follow in handling lost, unwanted, neglected or abandoned animals. To maintain a website on which pictures and information about animals ready for adoption are posted, including complimentary postings for area residents’ personal pets.
