pups in the park

Winston-Salem DASH says “Bring your dogs to the ballpark!” Buy a Pooch Pass ($5) and your dog can come into the ballpark and even march in the pre-game dog parade around the field. Proceeds from the Pooch Pass sales come to AARF. See calendar for complete season dates. 

 Dog owners will need to provide written proof of vaccination from their veterinarian in advance. Visit wsdash.com for more information.

hoots for hounds

Eric Weyer, owner of Hoots Roller Bar, opens his doors annually to a fun afternoon and evening fundraiser. You will find a wonderful silent auction, food & drink to purchase, dogs roaming around to pet and cuddle, and wonderful conversation. A percentage of bar sales for that day will be graciously donated to AARF to help save the cats and dogs. Your furry family members are welcome to join in the festivities!

party 4 paws

Party 4 Paws is AARF’s largest annual fundraiser. It is dedicated solely to underwriting the substantial medical expenses incurred in helping the ill and injured cats and dogs that AARF rescues. Funds raised from the event will ensure that AARF can continue to be a major rescue service in Forsyth County that treats any and all health situations, including vaccinations, spay and neuter, treatment of disease, repair of broken limbs, providing emergency services and surgery when needed. This year we cleared almost $70,000. The event is every spring, but you can contribute year-round on our donate page. Our cats and dogs are always appreciative!

a night to remember

A Night to Remember is an event where AARF welcomes the holiday spirit with reading aloud all the names of the people and pets that are being recognized through the purchase of ‘lights’ with each light representing a celebrant. Lights purchased will reflect a memory of or be in honor of any pet or a person you would like. Refreshments and drinks provided. Everyone is welcome. Purchase of remembrance or in honor lights will begin November 2019.
