Berea Animal Rescue Fund

Berea Animal Rescue Friends (ARF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit, no-time-limit organization providing second chances, love & care to 1,000+ animals annually.

Berea Animal Rescue Fund “ARF” began in 1987 as a small group of animal lovers started a ‘grassroots’ movement, recognizing the desperate housing and healthcare needs of homeless animals. Their efforts began in the southwest suburban Cleveland area, transforming a family’s garage into an animal "shelter."

The ARF movement grew when the city of Berea provided us a small building, utility costs included. In return, ARF would always have a cage open for the city’s stray animals. Now, after 27 years of service and thousands of success stories later ARF continues to save lives and make friends.

Our next big goal is to position ourselves into a roomier facility…a more spacious home to the area's unwanted and abandoned animals. We believe no pet should be euthanized or left behind because lack of such a place. Our facility is overcrowded and outdated by today’s animal welfare standards. ONLY, through the generous support of the community and the dedication of our volunteers, can we make this dream a reality.

Last year was another record breaking year for ARF with both animals helped and operating costs. Much help is needed!

The Berea Animal Rescue Fund “ARF” operates as a No Time Limit Shelter.
We are a 501(c) 3 Non Profit.


Visit our adoptables at our Shelter in Berea and our Off-Site Adoption Centers at Petco Westgate / Fairview Park and Pet Valu Berea.
