AARF To Protect Animals
AARF if you want to protect pets and wildlife. Non-profit organizations that shelter and rehabilitate homeless pets and wildlife can now receive financial support from AARF; the All Animals Rescue Fund established by Melanie and Bob Diehl of Oakland Township and managed by The Community Foundation of the Endless Mountains. This permanent endowment can provide assistance to animal shelters and rehabilitation centers throughout the United States, something the Diehls care about deeply. From sheltering abandoned cats and dogs to treating injured wildlife AARF can help defray the expenses of such organizations.
The Diehls have a true concern for animals and this new endowment is their way of providing long-term assistance to organizations whose mission it is to protect animals. Bob and Melanie point out that “our passion is to help the homeless, abandoned, injured, neglected, and abused animals. All of our pets over the years have been rescues and we currently have five cats and two dogs. We have talked about doing something like this endowment fund for many years, and fortunately we are now in a position to be able to create it.” As with all the charitable endowments managed by The Community Foundation, AARF can receive additional tax-deductible donations from those who share the Diehls’ concern. The enhanced value of the endowment will provide greater support to animal rescue shelters. Donations can be sent to AARF at The Community Foundation 270 Lake Avenue Montrose, PA 18801 or made online at www.community-foundation.org.
