Animal Assistance & Rescue Foundation

How to Help


Without donations, we can’t save the lives of numerous dogs and cats that enter our care as well as to prevent unwanted litters that occur throughout our community. Donations are vital to our mission.

Monetary donations can be made by any of the following methods.

Check donations can be mailed to:  AARF – 106 Shop Drive, Birmingham, AL  35242

Offsite Adoption Events:  Check our events section on our main page for dates and locations.



In kind donations can be made at the PetSmart on Hwy 280.  Just let them know that you have donations for AARF.  You can also drop them by during one of our adoption events.  Check our events section on our home page.


Since we are a foster home based rescue group, we are always in need of foster homes. By opening up your home to a pet in need, you are giving that pet a chance at a new life. Increasing our available foster homes mean that we are able to save more pets in need. Have questions about the foster process? We will be glad to answer them for you. 


Volunteers are the backbone to our organization. Without volunteers, we could not do what we do. Our entire rescue group is 100% volunteer based. There are many volunteer opportunities available and we are sure we have one that you would enjoy doing. Available opportunities include adoption events, fostering, holding supply drives, data entry, photography and many more. Interested in volunteering with AARF?
