AARF Has Puppies. Bring One Home!

AARF (Anguilla Animal Rescue Foundation) has had a recent influx of puppies available for adoption.  We’re passing along this information from them. Click on photos for larger version of images.Bingo at AARF

We have some very nice puppies at the AARF Adoption Centre and Shelter who are waiting for you to come and meet them.

Bingo is a male around four months old, very nice and easy to be with.  He is on the shy side and enjoys loving attention.  Bingo is learning how to walk on a leash.

Spam, Siri, and Zip are sisters, playful and full of puppy energy and ready for their forever homes.

Tap and Sync are females around two months old.  Someone dropped them off at the dump and fortunately they were quickly found and brought to the shelter where they are available for adoption.

Bing is a beautiful girl around 11 weeks of age.  She looks like she might be part lab…

Information about Adoptions

The adoption fee for puppies is $25.  That includes their first vaccination and deworming, $10 off their second and third vaccinations (they need a series of three to be protected from common and serious diseases), and their spay/neuter surgery when they are around six months old.  The AARF Adoption Centre and Shelter is located within Morlens Veterinary Clinic near the Sandy Hill roundabout.  For directions, see our website, www.aarf.ai.

The shelter and adoption centre will be open this week Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:30-12:30 and 3:30-5:00.  We expect to be open on Saturday from 9:30-12:30 but it’s best to call first (264.581.4600).  We will be closed on Thursday.  We invite you to come and meet all of our puppies.  We don’t have any kittens right now but we will be happy to take your contact information and let you know when some are available.

Can’t Adopt but Want to Help?

If you are flying to the Northeast you can help get puppies to loving forever homes by taking them to one of our adoptive families or rescue friends.  You will be saving a very precious life.  All you have to do is take the puppy with you in the cabin of your plane, where she will sit in her soft carrier under the seat in front of you.
You will be met at the airport by one of our rescue partners or by the adoptive family.  All of the puppy’s expenses will be covered.  It’s fun to travel with a puppy, you’ll have lots of admiring fellow travelers coming to talk to you, and you will be a very significant part of the puppy’s future.

If you are flying from Anguilla or St. Maarten and can take a puppy with you, or if you would like more information about the process, send us an email at aarfinfo@aarf.ai or call us on the shelter phone at 476.2731.  This is extremely important rescue work that you can do with very little effort, and have a life changing impact.

Our current needs are flights to Boston, Hartford, Providence, Newark, New York, Philadelphia, Toronto and other airports within driving distance.  If you are flying to another location, we may also be able to find someone at your home airport to help.  We’ve recently put some happy travel photos on our website’s home page, check them out at www.aarf.ai.

Please Spread the Word

Spread the word about our puppies, kittens, dogs, and cats through social media, when you meet people on the beach, however you can.  There are a lot of visitors to Anguilla who do not know about AARF and our need for adoptions and transports, and who would be happy to help once they became aware.

Note From Ken

Cute, cute, cute. And it looks like someone at AARF went “techie” naming these gorgeous little puppies… Bing, Zip, Spam, Siri, Sync, Tap. Where’s Google? 😉

Take an Anguillian puppy home. You’ll have a loving and loyal reminder of Anguilla forever AND save a life at the same time.

Anguilla Puppy Express and Other News from AARF

Here’s some news, information and requests from AARF that we’re happy to pass along. Sorry we don’t have any new darling puppy photos to show at the moment. There are none up for adoption at the moment! Good news for puppies!

Anguilla Puppy Express

Now that we are in the season when we have a lot of visitors, and many of our residents travel from Anguilla to the US and Canada, we’d like to ask you to consider bringing a puppy or kitten or two with you when you travel. We have rescue partners in various locations in the Northeast. They will meet you at the airport to receive the puppy and will find her a loving forever home. Sometimes an adoption is finalized before the flight, and you would be met by the new family.

We do not have enough adoptions into Anguilla families for all of the puppies and kittens who are surrendered, and our international rescue efforts not only save the lives of many, many animals but provide them with wonderful forever families. All of the puppy’s expenses will be paid for; you just have to make a reservation with your airline and take the puppy in the cabin with you. If you can help, or if you have any questions about transporting, please email us at aarfinfo@aarf.ai.

Of course we’d love to have you adopt a puppy or kitten yourself as well! If you want to help the Anguilla Puppy Express by giving a donation, you can make a contribution at the shelter, by mail, or on our website via PayPal. Just make a notation that it’s for the Puppy Express. Donations are much appreciated as they help us cover the costs for an adoption that might otherwise not happen.

Happy Stories on Facebook

More and more people are sharing their Anguilla puppy/kitten stories on Facebook and it’s a fun way to share and to see our little ones grow with their families. AARF has a Facebook page called Aarf Anguilla. There is a new group that Kevin Lloyd just started called Anguillan Pet Owners (URL not available yet). Fly-A-Pup; Saving Anguillan Pups is another great site run by our friends Klara and Rosie.

Our rescue partner Sue in NJ has Island Puppy Rescue International. Our rescue partner Elena in CT has The Animal Experts. Our rescue partner Heather in PA has Critter Corral Inc. Our rescue partner Lisa in Toronto has Lisa’s Small Dog Rescue. Our rescue partner in MA, via our friend Laurence, is Save A Dog, Inc. Anguilla Adopted Puppies

And don’t forget our website at www.aarf.ai. Here’s a photo we love, of three puppies who were adopted from Anguilla into different homes at different times and now go to doggy day care together.

Join us at Roy’s on Friday Nights

We are back into the swing of the Friday night happy hour raffles at Roy’s Bayside Grill in Sandy Ground. Raffle tickets are just $1 each or 6/$5. We have fun prizes and the drawing is at 7pm. All prizes are donated, and all money raised goes to AARF.

Please Help

Can you bring some soft carriers to Anguilla? We have a few more soft carriers in the States that we need to get back to the shelter so that we can use them again. If you are traveling to Anguilla and can bring two or more along, please let us know. They can be folded and put into a suitcase.

This is an ongoing need, as we send puppies and kittens to the States, we need the carriers back, and having people bring them when they come to Anguilla is the easiest for us. We will arrange to have the carriers mailed to your home or place of business.

Cleaning House? Now that the holidays are over, many of us get the urge to clean house. It’s a perfect time to set aside things you no longer use and donate them to AARF for our yard sale. Maybe that gift you received and will never use will be treasured by someone else.

We happily accept all new and gently used items. You can drop them off at the AARF container behind Anguilla Techni Sales on the North Hill Road or at the shelter. If you have furniture or other large items and need help, send us an email at aarfinfo@aarf.ai. The sale of just a few items at the yard sale will pay for the cost of a vaccination and go a long way toward paying for a spay.

Shelter Wish List

If you are coming to Anguilla and would like to bring something to help our shelter animals, we can always use small (6-12″) puppy collars, leashes, washable puppy and kitten toys, treats, soft sided carriers for international adoptions, hard sided crates to use for rentals, as well as much needed financial donations. We hope you will stop by the shelter, meet our guests, cuddle puppies and kittens, buy an AARF tee shirt or hat to take home with you. We always enjoy meeting new supporters and seeing returning friends.

Wonder how to make a donation to AARF if you’re not in Anguilla? It’s easy with our PayPal donation button on the AARF website (www.aarf.ai). On the home page and other pages you’ll see the icon of AARF poster girl Freya, who is now happily living in Maine with her loving forever family. Click on the icon and you’ll see how easy it is to donate.

freya-anguilla-kittenAs we’ve said before, AARF gets no support from the government. All of our programs are funded through the generosity of people like you, whether through direct donations, membership dues, or participating in our fund raisers. Here’s the Freya icon to look for on our website.

Thank you for all you do. It truly makes a difference.
