We do all we can to help end the suffering of lost and/or abandoned pets in San Diego County.


ARRF (Animal Rescue Resource Foundation) is an organization with years of combined experience in rescue, spay/neuter and support of people that are helping animals get a better deal. We are a 501 (c) (3) Non-profit organization working to assist the rescue community, educate the public, and support low cost spay/neuter efforts.

We support a variety of efforts to protect and defend our furry friends and our goal is to provide connections and solutions for pets and the people that work with them. Our commitment is to find the need and fill it with our "grass roots" approach at getting pets, products and people supported.

We serve San Diego County.

We have an Adoption Application, contract, fee, and a process to find the very best match between a pet and their adopter. We interview all potential adoptors to insure the perfect match for all of our rescue animals. We want both you and our adoptable pets to be happy with the match.

We do not have a shelter location. All pets are in foster care.

Rescue and Foster



Thank you for your interest in pet adoption from ARRF!


Our Foster Program - At the heart of ARRF is our Pet Rescue and Foster Program. ARRF does not have a shelter location. Instead, all ARRF adoptable pets are housed by volunteer foster homes in the San Diego County area.


What We Do:

ARRF provides supplies (leashes, food, flea medication, etc.) though some fosters supplement with their own supplies/food as a donation to the program.

Veterinary partners provide foster dogs with medical care.

ARRF strives to accommodate dog preferences for fosters when possible.

If a foster dog is not working out, please allow 72 hours for identifying another foster for the dog.

What Fosters Do:

Foster dogs particularly need care, patience, and affection along with socialization and basic training. Dogs coming out of shelters tend to be frightened and shy. Helping them improve is a nice fostering reward.

Foster dogs are leashed at all times.

We encourage free home access for the dog especially during work hours. Keeping the dog's life cage free improves their socialization.

If the rescue dog gets lost in your care, please notify us immediately and assist in advertising the loss.

Fosters supplement online dog listings with pictures and descriptions. A great online adoption profile helps the dog find a loving home faster.

Fosters need to be available for one of our monthly adopt-a-pet events. See our website schedule of events.

Spay and Neuter



Thank you for your interest in pet adoption from ARRF!


ARRF always spays/neuters a pet prior to adoption, as well as giving the pet recommended shots along with any medical treatment necessary to make sure the pet is healthy. The sterilization of your cat or dog increases his/her chance of a longer and healthier life!

What is spay/neuter? The word "spay" refers to the sterilization (or altering) of female pets. The term "neuter," while commonly used to refer to the castration of male pets, generally describes the sterilization (or altering) of both female and male pets.

According to SpayUSA.org, "Altering your canine friend will increase his life an average of 1 to 3 years, felines, 3 to 5 years. Altered animals have a very low to no risk of mammary gland tumors/cancer, prostate cancer, perianal tumors, pyometria, and uterine, ovarian and testicular cancers."

In females, spaying and neutering reduces or eliminates the risk of mammary gland tumors, ovarian and/or uterine cancer, especially if done before the first heat cycle. In males, the risk of testicular cancer is eliminated, and decreases incidence of prostate disease.

If you are concerned that your pet might become overweight after spaying or neutering, keep in mind that just like people, pets become overweight when they eat too much and/or exercise too little. An appropriate diet and sufficient activity is all it takes to keep your pet slender and healthy after spaying or neutering.

When in doubt ask your Veterinarian. Always consult your veterinarian about the most appropriate time to spay or neuter your pet based upon its breed, age and physical condition and discuss the health benefits and how spaying and neutering can benefit your pets.

Pet Friendly Rentals in San Diego


Tips for Living in an Apartment with a Pet
By Satinder Haer

Pets are a bundle of fun but they don't always make for the easiest roommates. Your furry companion likely doesn't have the same respect for space boundaries, stylish decor or cleanliness as you. Sharing a living space, especially one that you are renting, with a pet can require some upfront planning to ensure everyone's needs are met.

If you're a pet owner who's looking to rent or bringing a new animal into your existing apartment, follow these tips to create a pet-friendly space.

1. Create a Dedicated Pet Area

Pets value space and security, just like humans. Help your animal feel more at home by creating a dedicated spot in your rental for them, even if it's small. Lay out blankets or a pet bed for them, along with all their toys and supplies. To stay organized, add wall hooks or a floating shelf above your pet's bed for leashes and treats. A dedicated area can help you contain all of your items in one spot and make sure your pet has their own little nook.

2. Opt for Pet-Friendly Furniture

Animals often love climbing on furniture; opting for items that can withstand a little damage will prevent the need for frequent replacements. Crypton, microfiber and leather fabrics will withstand stains and scratches the best. Look for these materials when sofa shopping. For color selection, dark, neutral tones and colorful patterns are the most forgiving of scuff marks and stains. If you can provide input on your apartment's flooring, hardwood and tiled floors tend to be more hygienic and conducive to cleaning up pet hair.

3. Find Storage Solutions

Bored pets, especially if they are young, often chew through wires, shoes or anything else left within their reach. Invest in storage solutions for each room of your rental to keep your valuables safely stashed away. Storage can be cleverly disguised as decor so that it isn't an eyesore in an otherwise stylish apartment. Look for items such as benches, ottomans and side tables that have built-in storage and match the style of your apartment.

4. Keep It Clean

Pet hair can end up everywhere if it is not continually removed, especially when you're living in a small apartment. Plan to vacuum and mop your floors at least once a week. To quickly remove pet hair from upholstery, take a damp rubber glove (the kind used for washing dishes) and run it over the furniture to collect the hairs. If your pet likes sleeping and playing in the dedicated spot you've set up for them, you might be able to isolate more of their fur shedding.

Living in a rental with a pet can certainly be a challenge if you don't prepare properly. But, with a little work upfront, you can create an accommodating environment for you and your furry friend to enjoy.
