At ARF Hamptons: Winter 2023

Animals of the Month

KIWI: This adorable tuxedo kitten was found in Sag Harbor this summer and came to ARF through the Operation Cat program. Under ARF’s care, she was diagnosed with a rare kidney condition that has done nothing to diminish her joy! At five-months-old, Kiwi is full of energy and extremely playful (toy mice and wands are her favorite), but she also loves to unwind and cuddle in your arms. Adopt her today and let the love fest begin!

ZIA: Zia is the two-year-old mom of the puppies that arrived at ARF last month, with the help of our new partner Española Humane in New Mexico and support from the Irving and Phyllis Millstein Foundation for Animal Welfare. Zia kept her puppies safe until they were adopted, and now it is her turn. Her sweet, calm, and loving personality is just one of her endearing qualities that make her the perfect pet.
