Year-end numbers in at ACARF
Allen County Animal Rescue Facility has adopted out 106 animals in its first five months of operation.
Since opening July 5, the low-kill facility has placed 30 cats and 76 dogs and returned one cat and 26 dogs to owners. In addition, 14 dogs were sent to breed rescue organizations, and four cats and one dog are in foster care. All told, 194 dogs and 68 cats have come through the facility. The shelter is full, with 53 dogs and 26 cats available for adoption, including the quiet but larger Chico, whose adoption fees have already been paid.
Shelter hours are 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
ACARF will be closed this Friday and Saturday for the New Year holiday and will reopen Tuesday.
Rikki is a mature smaller dog that has been at ACARF for a few months now. She would love a forever home.
Chico, a resident at Allen County Rescue Facility since the day it opened, awaits adoption to a forever home. Chico’s family was forced to give up the middle-aged dog when they moved, and paid his adoption fee in hopes he would more easily find a new home. He waits patiently, still wagging his tail each time visitors go by.
