Every year thousands of animals are admitted to San Bernardino County Animal Shelter facilities, which include the Big Bear and Devore Animal Shelters. Last year alone, over 16,000 animals were admitted to these facilities. The homeless animals in San Bernardino County need your help and ARFF is the only non-profit charitable organization established to specifically aid and help the animals cared for at these facilities.

In calendar year 2012, the following are just a few of the many ways ARFF provided direct support to the animals cared for at the County’s Animal Shelters:

  • Paid for the spay/neuter surgeries for animals adopted during the County’s fifty (50) off-site adoption events held in 2012. A total of 412 surgeries were paid for as a result of our donor’s generous support.
  • Sponsored the 1st Annual Homeward Bound Mega Pet Adoption Event which was held in June 2012. Invited the County’s “animal rescue group partners” to participate in this event which resulted in 163 pets being adopted into new homes.
  • Sponsored additional “life-saving” programs in 2012, such as the "Pets to Patriots" adoption effort which matched homeless pets with veterans and their families.
  • Sponsored the "Furever Yours" Valentine’s Day pet adoption campaign.
  • Sponsored "Super Senior May – Never Too Old to Play" adoption program which matched senior pets with senior citizens.
  • Purchased educational materials and items that were used to promote the good work of Animal Care and Control.
  • Purchased "Pet Bandanas" that were used to highlight the many positive attributes of the pets housed at County Animal Shelters.

Our donors generous contributions have helped the County to provide many "life-saving" efforts and programs that would not have possible with their support.

The homeless animals in San Bernardino County need your help and financial support.
