Volunteer opportunities include a wide variety of activities to meet everyone’s time and experience requirements, such as Dog Walking, Cat Companion, fundraising, events and more.

About Animal Rescue Friends

Mission Statement

The mission of the Berea Animal Rescue Friends is to provide compassionate quality care for companion animals in need.


Berea Animal Rescue Friends (ARF) is a no-time-limit animal shelter that rescues stray and homeless companion animals, provides medical care, spay/neuter, vaccinations and housing, and prepares animals for adoption into loving homes.

As a 501c(3) organization, Berea ARF is funded exclusively through contributions from our supporters and revenues generated through adoptions and fundraising events. We have a small staff, and are operated largely through our exceptional, devoted team of 300-plus volunteers who work 365 days a year to care for our animals.

Prior to adoption, all animals are provided with basic veterinary examinations, age- appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter procedures, are tested for disease, and microchipped. Each year, Berea ARF places about 1,000 companion animals into their forever homes.
