A common question asked on the web site is.... Where can we buy AARF t-shirts?
The answer is Bartlett's Collection!
Calvin and Lynn Bartlett have a great new location at the South Hill Roundabout. The new location has allowed them to expand and Pamela Miller and Julius Africa sell Smoothies as part of the new business look.
Bartlett's collection has a great selection of local craft items, gifts and furniture. If you are looking for everything Anguilla, this is the stop for you. Their unique style is a must see for all visitors to Anguilla.
Take a break from the hot sun and enjoy one of Pam's Smoothies like Mango Madness or Crazy Coconut!
If you are lucky, you might meet Sarah the counting dog while you are there. Sarah is an AARF rescue puppy that does many tricks. Lynn and Sarah also volunteer with the AARF Education Committee and bring the work of AARF to school children throughout the island.
AARF merchandise includes t-shirts, tanks, bags and our latest addition men's polo's. We extend our sincere thanks to Lynn and Calvin for their support of AARF and we wish them every success in their wonderful new location!
Summer Hours 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

By Hannah Edwards
Hannah and the Edwards family were responsible for fostering 3 females through 3 pregnancies over the last 6 months here in Anguilla. Cinnamon (above) and her two pups went to New Hampshire in January and found loving homes.
Fluffy and Hannah share a hug
Fluffy had 5 puppies in April and were fostered and cared for from birth by the entire family. One puppy was adopted here in Anguilla and three others went to New Hampshire in May. Hannah couldn't resist keeping Geranium for herself.
Geranium at 10 weeks...will she fit in that carrier and pass the weight limit?
The Edwards are currently caring for Coco who gave birth to 6 puppies about 3 weeks ago.
The Edwards' leave Anguilla this month and will take Geranium with them to the US. They will embark on a new road, learning how to raise a puppy.
They leave behind a legacy of caring for the less fortunate animals of Anguilla and can be assured that the ones they have sheltered will never forget them.
AARF wishes to express our sincere thanks for the care and love you have given to Anguilla's animals. We will miss you and look forward to your return.
Hana (black cat) was adopted over a year ago by Cathy from Maryland. It would appear that Hana is quite the lovely young lady now and shares a good part of her time with Norman. It looks like they are inseparable.
Thanks to Cathy and her mom Jane for sharing the great photos.
