ARF! The Animal Resource Facility

We are excited to share the future vision of animal welfare in Delaware County. The vision includes a public-priviate partnership to develop an animal-centric complex, appropriately named ARF (Animal Resource Facility),  From adoption, veterinary care, training, boarding, or grooming, ARF represents a holistic approach to meeting the needs of the animal and its’ human family.
The building complex will be anchored by the 22,000 sq. ft. facility housing the Humane Society of Delaware County. Several private businesses will also be incorporated to provide a variety of services related to animal care, needs, and wellness.  An ARF committee is being formed to help address a variety of activities that will need to be completed to bring this vision to reality.
If you would like to sign-up to help us build the future of animal welfare in Delaware County, please sign up here.  We’d love to have you participate!
