Bark for Life

This Saturday, November 14, 2015, ARFP will be at the American Cancer Society’s Bark for Life event in Greensboro, NC. We’ll be there with information about who ARFP is and what we do, T-shirts and pets toys for sale, and of course some of our amazing foster pups who are looking for homes!

The event is being held near Shelter #1 in Country Park and goes from 9 AM until 12:30 PM. Opening ceremonies are at 10 AM, with a survivor lap at 10:15 AM. Closing ceremonies are at 12:30 PM.

For more information, please visit http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR?pg=entry&fr_id=76261.

The Next Step Adoption Center will be open regular hours for feline adoptions. But if you’re interested in adopting a dog, please come see us at Bark for Life!

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/.

2015 Purse & Shoe Sale Fundraiser

Spread the word that we are now collecting purses and shoes. They can be dropped off at 711 Milner Drive in Greensboro anytime. If the adoption center is closed, donations can be placed in the bins by the front door.

And be sure to let your friends, family, and co-workers know about the sale! Feel free to print out the flyers above to post so you can spread the news. One for donations, and one for the sale itself.

 

Recycling Program Update

As of December 1, 2015, we will be ending most of our recycling program.

We will ALWAYS recycle used cell phones and used printer/toner cartridges. This has always been a good fundraiser and continues to be.

We will not continue to recycle most of the other things such as chip bags, make up, etc… This is a labor intense endeavor which has not turned out to be lucrative. We gave it a try, but it didn’t work out. Many, many thanks to Alicia Valenzuela McBirney for driving this fundraiser! What a wonderful mission, and we wish it was feasible to continue. Thank you to everyone that has participated. We will collect until December 1, 2015.
