Give BIG San Bernardino County is a 24-hour online giving campaign taking place from 7 am on May 8 to 6:59 am on May 9, 2014. The Give BIG San Bernardino County campaign allows you to give to your favorite causes in our community, thus helping improve the quality of life for our community. Our goal is to get everyone who cares about the quality of life in San Bernardino County to help us raise $300,000 in just 24 hours. One day. One click. One community.

Currently the Devore and Big Bear shelters are 10th for donors. Please donate and make them number ONE. Donations will go to AARF, the non profit of the County's shelters. THE TOP TEN WILL GET ADDITIONAL FUNDS. 

UPDATE: As of a few moments ago, AARF had moved into 7th place. Thanks.

Every year thousands of animals are admitted to San Bernardino County Animal Shelter facilities, which include the Big Bear and Devore Animal Shelters. Last year alone, over 16,000 animals were admitted to these facilities. The homeless animals in San Bernardino County need your help and ARFF is the only non-profit charitable organization established to specifically aid and help the animals cared for at these facilities.

In calendar year 2013, the following are just a few of the many ways ARFF provided direct support to the animals cared for at the County’s Animal Shelters:
  • Paid for the spay/neuter surgeries for animals adopted during the County’s fifty two (52) off-site adoption events held in 2013. A total of 289 surgeries were paid for as a result of our donor’s generous support.
  • Sponsored the 2nd Annual Homeward Bound Mega Pet Adoption Event which was held in June 2013. Invited the County’s “animal rescue group partners” to participate in this event which resulted in 162 pets being adopted into new homes.
  • Sponsored additional “life-saving” programs in 2013, such as the "Pets to Patriots" adoption effort which matched homeless pets with veterans and their families.
  • Sponsored the "Furever Yours" Valentine’s Day pet adoption campaign.
  • Sponsored "Super Senior May – Never Too Old to Play" adoption program which matched senior pets with senior citizens.
  • Purchased educational materials and items that were used to promote the good work of Animal Care and Control.
  • Purchased "Microchips" that are implanted in each animal adopted; assisting in reuniting lost pets with their owners.
Our donors generous contributions have helped the County to provide many "life-saving" efforts and programs that would not have possible with their support.

The homeless animals in San Bernardino County need your help and financial support.
