Welcome to ARF!
March Facebook Adoption Contest
Congratulations to Ricky, the winner of our March photo & adoption story contest! He had a very impressive 247 votes on Facebook! This is his adoption story:
Before I got married, my mom got connected with ARF and found a cat that she knew I would love! Well I did fall in love with him but he also fell in love with my mom's dog and we didn't want to break up the happy pair. So after I got married, I just knew I needed my own cat. Christmas 2008, my husband and I got connected with ARF and heard about this wonderful tuxedo cat! We went to the PetSmart and met a few other cats but once I held this kitty I started crying because I was so excited to have a cat to bring home! I knew he was the one that ARF had been telling me about! I feel in love at first purr! He has such a fun loving personality and absolutely LOVES people!
