A.R.F., the Animal Rescue Foundation of Muncie, Ind., operates a low-income food pantry, a spay/neuter assiatance program, and places between 450 and 500 animals a year, including many they pull from the nearby Muncie Animal Shelter. They also often work with a high-kill shelter in Kentucky when they have space available or the need is urgent. About half of their funding goes to the 24-hour shelter operations, with the remainder split fairly evenly between veterinary costs and program services. 

A.R.F. also operates and maintains the only dog park in Muncie, the "Bark Park, " a 1-acre, double-gated greenspace that allows dogs of all sizes and ages, a safe place to play and socialize off-leash.  The Bark Park is partially funded by its visitors' annual membership fees.
