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

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.

Helping Shelter Pets

Rescued from the shelter, and now safe in an ARFP foster home

Rescued from the shelter, and now safe in an ARFP foster home

Today, for the first time in 17 years, ARFP went into the Guilford County Animal Shelter knowing that we were going to give a dog her freedom. This little girl will never see the inside of a shelter again! YAY!

If we want to be able to help more shelter animals, in addition to the many that people call us needing help, we must raise some extra money. Pulling animals from shelters can be risky and expensive. We know even less about them than the others we take in, plus they have been exposed to whatever is in the shelter at that time.
Hence, an online fundraising site has been set up. Feel free to share so that we can help more babies escape the shelter.
It’s going to be great for the animals of Guilford County to be in better hands!!
