Allegheny County government is the first in the nation to partner with local animal Shelters to care for abused and neglected animals.  To provide much-needed funding to help hundreds of animals rescued each year, the Allegheny County Treasurer's Office-in conjunction with Animal Friends, the Animal Rescue League of Western Pennsylvania, and the Humane Society of Western Pennsylvania-developed the Allegheny Abused Animal Relief Fund (AAARF!).
 
This special charitable fund is overseen by the Treasurer's Office.  All donations are used by local Shelters for direct animal care and to cover minimal costs of operating the fund.
 
Your contribution can make the difference for abused and neglected companion animals.
You may send donations directly to:

Because abuse hurts everyone.

When you support AAARF!....
  • You support officials who treat animal cruelty as a serious crime.
  • You support the County's goal of having all no-kill shelters by 2005.
  • You provide veterinary care, food and shelter for the hundreds of local animals rescued from abuse each year.
  • You help prevent violence to people.  Studies show that a large percentage of adults who commit violent crimes start with animals.

Scientists and lawmakers are beginning to acknowledge that society's treatment of animals is inseperable from its treatment of human beings.
