Marder’s Donor Honoree Video | ARF
Honoring Years of Generosity and Support
About This Video Project
I’m kind of a real dog person. I mean, I’ve had animals in my office for 46 years, and then before that, in my pickup truck. I spend all day with my dogs, and they sleep in our bedroom, so if you add it all up, I would be spending more face time with my dogs than with caffeine. I sort of consider ARF a mental health facility. From stories of children who get an ARF dog, and the poor dog that never got adopted, but somebody came in and said, I’ll take that dog. I mean, it’s just heart warmth permeating like a star. So I really think the community’s overall cumulative average mental health comes up because of ARF. The volunteers have been really great, and that seems to be a real bloodline for the ARF organization. My son and his girlfriend were gonna adopt a dog, and their first stop was ARF, and they were really impressed with how they really care who takes a dog or a cat home. I think it’s important that the donors have supported ARF to the degree that they can add on to their facility and make it ever more comfortable for the animals that have to live there. Woof! Right, Redberry? Woof! He agrees. ARF really does help people, and particularly in aberrant times that we’ve been through, it became apparent how important it is to people to save a dog or to save a cat and get companionship from that animal.
