Born out of their passion to save animals, Heather Enajibi and Erin Halter of Burien started Animal Aid and Rescue Foundation (AARF) in 2010 and have rescued and found loving homes for more than 500 animals (dogs, cats, turtles and guinea pigs), with 39 dogs adopted so far in 2015.
Erin and Heather are passionate about helping people keep their animals. “We've heard of many cases where people surrender their animals to shelters because they can't afford to feed them or had to have their animals euthanized when they got ill or injured because they couldn't afford the medical care,” states Halter. In 2012 AARF Angel Fund was created to aid with pet food and vet care for these cases.
