ARF’s next spay neuter trip is Monday, January 27. We are still offering our low-cost spay neuter ($20 plus $10 for shots). You can sign up any Saturday from 1-3 pm at ARF’s downtown Sylva location at 50 Railroad Ave, near the farmer’s market (but later in the day).

For the best shot at a successful introduction, meet on neutral territory. Have a family member or friend meet […]
My experience in 20 years of dog training has been that the "rescued" dogs are most prone to developing separation anxiety. This makes sense in that these dogs are most likely to have been neglected and mistreated, so of course they are going to attach themselves to the first nice person they meet. What’s more, […]
The cats have finally returned from ARF’s first Humane Alliance spay/neuter trip of 2014. The first January trip was delayed because of weather, and this all-cat crew got stranded in Asheville for three nights because of dangerous road conditions.
