ARF was established in 2005 to support the work of the Everett Animal Shelter (EAS), Snohomish County’s largest and only open-admission shelter. Through fundraising, adoption events and education, ARF spreads public awareness about the Everett Shelter and the important work it does for animals and the community in Snohomish County. ARF is uniquely poised to provide assistance directly to the animals who most need it by funding medical expenses that fall outside the shelter’s budget. In 2010, ARF donated $40,000 to fully equip the Vet Surgery & Clinic in the new EAS shelter facility at Langus Park. In 2011 we pledged another $70,000 to be given over three years for the ongoing expenses of the Vet Surgery & Clinic.

MyEverettNews.com spoke with Amy Ferguson, executive director for ARF, who gave us some further insight into how the money raised at the Gala will help animals in Everett. “We help out in a variety of ways–most recently, we paid for an EKG for a lab-mix puppy,” said Ferguson. “We also go to local pet stores and adopt animals out for the shelter, which is a fun way to get them out in the public for a day.”

The Animal Rescue Foundation of Everett is coming up on their 10th anniversary and at MyEverettNews.com we’re big fans of the great work they do. Discover more about ARF, purchase tickets for the Gala or find other ways to help by going to their website.
