Lost Dogs Found in Corito

    Becky Haskins sends us this picture of 2 dogs found in her neighborhood in Corito.  It looks like they got away from someone based on the ropes around their necks.  Please call Amy at Morlen's Veterinary Clinic if you have lost these lovely dogs.  (497-4600)

Kathy Haskins Raises Money for AARF Computer - Funds Still Needed

One of AARF's great supporters Kathy Haskins took it upon herself to collect funds for a much needed computer for capturing AARF statistics.  Thus far Kathy has raised $1080.00.  We still need to collect another $400 to pay for the printer and duty.  If you are interested in donating to this worthy cause, please contact

Photo Album Update

Another of AARF's wonderful adoptable pets has gone to a home in the United States.  On her recent visit here to Anguilla, Cathy Broome of Maryland enquired about bringing a cat back to the States with her.  She came well equipped with carrier and all the items necessary to bring back a kitten.  Cathy had recently lost one of her treasured friends and wanted a kitten to keep her remaining cat company.  Cathy felt that bringing a rescue cat from AARF home would be a good idea.  

AARF had one female kitten available at the time and it was love at first sight.  Cathy named her Hana after Malliouhana.  Every day while Cathy was here she visited with Hana at Morlen's Veterinary Clinic.  Reports were that Hana got very upset when Cathy would leave her for the day.  Hana was definitely bonding with Cathy.

AARF would like to thank Cathy for giving Hana a great new home and wish her every success with her new best friend.
