HAPPENINGS
"Magic under the Moonlight" Benefits Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons (ARF)

We've all known the feeling: passing by a cat or dog adoption table and immediately falling in love with one or all of the furry friends needing a home. Within minutes of petting that kitten or puppy, you're mentally rearranging your apartment layout, and creating blocks in your busy time schedule for dog-walking, as you coo "you are just tooooo cute."

Unfortunately, cuteness and wishful thinking are not the only deciding factors in pet adoption, leaving many strays still residing in animal shelters, looking for a loving home. The Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons, the leading animal welfare organization on the East End of Long Island, aims to provide food, exercise, a warm place to sleep, and excellent veterinary care to over 700 cats and dogs anually at their state-of-the-art Adoption Center.
