ARF’s services in 2018-19
Those who reserve a spot but do not show up and do not notify ARF will forfeit their fee. If you must cancel, call. We will do everything we can to accommodate your pet on our next trip. Your pet will need to travel in a hard plastic carrier or crate (not a wire cage, and not a cloth carrier). If you do not have one, we have crates available on spay/ neuter day. If you need to take one home before hand, you must pay a deposit. As soon as the cleaned crate is returned, you will receive the crate deposit back.
Instructions for spay/neuter day:
- For transport, all pets must be in a hard plastic carrier or crate (not a wire cage, and not a cloth carrier); if you do not have a carrier, let us know in advance so we can provide one. Important: leave cats in car until you get a crate. Uncrated cats become frightened and are likely to run away.
- Adult pets should receive no food after midnight the night before (water is okay). Young puppies and kittens can have a very small meal (a few bites) early in the morning before the trip, but consider avoiding that if your pet gets motion sickness!
- Pets are dropped off between 8 and 8:15 am at the ARF office in downtown Sylva next to the new pavillion on Railroad Ave. Get directions from your location. Please don’t come early; no one will be available to check you in before 8:00 AM.
- Pickup is the following day, usually around 12:15 p.m.; please check to make sure what time your pet will be ready. We all have full-time jobs while volunteering for ARF, so please ensure your pet’s safety and our volunteers’ jobs by picking up your pet on time!
