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.
