For over 44 years, ARF has been an advocate and refuge for abandoned and homeless cats and dogs. We place hundreds of animals in loving homes every year — more than 25,000 since 1974 — and it takes a community of animal advocates, generous volunteers, and vocal leaders from all corners of public life to make this happen.

Each year ARF recognizes a generous benefactor with the Champion of Animals Award for his or her ongoing and unwavering commitment to ARF and its missions.
