Join ARFP for the Human Race!

April 16, 2016 is the 22nd Annual Human Race, a 5k walk/run put on by the Greensboro Volunteer Center to help local charities raise money for their causes. ARFP volunteers have walked in the Human Race every year, since the very beginning — 21 years! And this year is no different.

BUT…

We need more people to sign up to walk! So far we’ve got 10 people signed up to walk and raise money on behalf of ARFP. We’re hoping to get at least 25, but more would be even better!

This is an important fundraiser for us and goes a long way toward covering the medical bills for the homeless puppies and kittens in our program. Their adoption fees only cover a small portion of their medical costs, so we need fundraisers like the Human Race to help us keep saving homeless pets. Especially with puppy and kitten season just around the corner.

Check out ARFP’s Human Race page to learn more about registering to join us for this great fundraiser or to sponsor one of the walkers on our team.

ARFP at the Antique Market Place

On Saturday, November 7, 2015, the Antique Market Place in Greensboro, NC, will be holding an antiques appraisal. You know, the MASSIVE antique mall you see as you drive down I-40. They’ll have knowledgeable appraisers on site between 11 AM and 2 PM this Saturday, and you can get your antiques appraised for $6 per item. Better yet, all the proceeds go to ARFP, to help us save more homeless pets!

We’ll be there, too, with the dogs and puppies in our program who are looking for good homes. So even if you don’t have any antiques that need to be appraised, you can still come out to browse and maybe find a great new forever friend!

The cats and kittens in our program will be holding down the fort at the NSAC, so if cats are more your style you can visit them at our adoption center between 11 AM and 3 PM. All the dogs will be busy antiquing at the Antique Market Place, though!

The Antique Market Place is located at 6428 Burnt Poplar Road, Greensboro, NC. For more information, visit http://www.triadantiques.com/.
