A few words about us
We are the Animal Rescue Family; a small group of caring individuals who have the best interest of animals in our hearts. Organized in 1997, the Animal Rescue Family is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting responsible pet ownership, finding homes for lost, abused, and unwanted pets, promoting the humane treatment of animals through education, and advocating pet population control.
Behind the Scenes
Behind the scenes ARF members are helping animals one at a time; sometimes more than one at a time! Many, many animals have come through our volunteer's hands/homes/hearts and it would be impossible to try to count. There is a LOT going on in Algona and Kossuth County where animals need and receive our help. Sometimes it's getting vaccinations spay/neuter arranged, sometimes it's watching over sick animals, or feeding newborn kittens, getting animals re-homed, transporting them to other shelters, and the list goes on.
