Mission Statement

Animal Rescue Force places healthy unwanted dogs and cats in responsible homes.


Animal Rescue Force is a private non-profit organization established in 1974 in order to find responsible homes for dogs and cats and to encourage all dog and cat owners to spay and neuter their pets. ARF adopts pets through their two adoption centers at Route 18 Indoor Market East Brunswick, N.J. and at the Englishtown Auction, Englishtown, N.J in the gray building. Some of the animals at ARF come directly from owners who have to give up their pets, but who can keep them at home for a few weeks to work through ARF. Other animals are kept by ARF volunteers in their homes until they are adopted. ARF has found new homes for a total of 20,000 animals in their 25+ years of operation.

I love animals and i enjoy making a change in some way or the other.I personally have a dog and to only think that he would be in the same situation saddens me.To only think any animal is sufferring causes me deep pain.I would love to contribute in any way possible!
