If you are thinking about adding a pet to your family, please consider one of these worthy animals below. For one reason or another, these cats and dogs have been overlooked and we are hoping to bring some attention their way. All are deserving of a loving home.

Combined with daily expenses of food, training, supplies, and cleaning, it costs nearly $500 a week to make our shelter a home for each cat and dog in our care.

For more information on any of these animals, please contact Bridget@arfhamptons.org or call 631.537.0400 x203.
