Animal Rescue of Fresno (ARF) was established in 1998 by a group of community members in Fresno, CA. They wanted to do something about the high number of homeless dogs that were dying because no one gave them a chance to find their forever home.
ARF began its operations out of a small facility on Belmont Ave and Highway 99. ARF moved to its current location on Dakota Ave. in 2005. From its humble beginnings, ARF has grown quickly, so that more and more dogs each year can be rescued and adopted out to loving forever homes.
