About ARF

ARF rescue dogs in Canberra (Australia) and the surrounding region from euthanasia and foster them temporarily in our own homes for as long as it takes us to find them loving, permanent homes.

Support ARF

ARF is grateful for the generosity of our supporters.

Not everyone can adopt or foster a dog, but there is still plenty you can do to help ARF find loving, permanent homes for rescue dogs.
We rely on volunteers and donations to continue our life-saving work. Any help you can provide (financial or otherwise) will be very gratefully received.
For just $15 per year, you can become a member of ARF and your membership dollars go towards helping the dogs. You can choose your level of involvement in ARF activities.
