Happiness for animals is our goal!
Our chapter has no paid employees, ALL THE MONEY WE COLLECT GOES TO THE ANIMALS
in food, medical bills, crates, etc. NONE of it goes into anyone's pocket.
this time, we do not have a “shelter”. All our animals are kept in foster
homes. In many cases, this is better for the animal. Those that are
traumatized or need special attention can be worked with so they can more easily
adapt to a home environment.
hold pet adoptions, fun events, training events, and educational events. Our
main focus is our spay and neuter program. There were 40,000 dogs put to sleep
in Arkansas in the year 2000. The only solution is to educate the public of
this terrible tragedy and to spay and neuter until it’s under control.
sponsor low cost spay and neuter programs to help people on low income, the
elderly and the disabled.
NAFA receives calls to check on breeders, puppy mills, and pet shops. We hold spay and neuter clinics where low income people can bring in their animals and get them neutered. We take in animals and hold pet adoptions where we screen people to make sure we find good homes for the animals placed in our care. Many times the animals we take in need medication and/or socialization. We also hold training classes. The classes teach people basic obedience but also teaches a lot of "extras" about owning a dog. Some of NAFA's main goals are:
If you want to learn more about rescue, go to our page "About Rescue".
But the site is really about all rescue organizations out there that are working to help animals, and are willing to suffer themselves to do so. With enough people, enough money, and through legislation, we can help stop so much of what is going on. I hope you go through our entire site. I hope you rejoice with us and cry with us. And I hope you decide to became a part of us. If one person decides to help in the fight, then the time and money spent doing this website will be worth it.
These are good questions. However, for every animal you allow to give birth and find a home for, an animal in a shelter will be euthanized. For more statistics about this go to our Why Spay & Neuter page.
Check out our Calendar of Events to find out what things are going on. Come and be part of the fun.
If you are another rescuer, go to our "To Rescuers" page. We have things you can relate to. (Anyone else is also welcome and will probably learn something about rescue.) And, if you have a rescue group not listed in our "Other Rescue Groups", let us know and we will be glad to exchange links with you.
If you are interested in helping us, or any other group, but do not know how, there are several ways of doing this. Go to our "Ways To Help" page and take a look. Maybe there are some things you can do that you haven't thought of. And, thanks in advance for you help, no matter what group you're helping.

partner, your defender, your dog.
Thank you for visiting us
Most of the things on the site deal with dogs and cats, only because that's all we had. If you have information or fun things pertaining to other animals, send it to us and we will consider putting it on the site also.
Thank you to Peggy Rose for allowing us to use some of her beautiful graphics. You can visit her site here.
We have graphics from several different places. If we have a graphic that does not have the correct name of ownership, please let us know. We will either give the name or remove it altogether.
