Animal rescue, rehabilitation and adoptions in
Wimberley, Texas since 1997
501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization

ARF works on a completely volunteer basis; all donations of pet food, services, or monetary help for expenses is greatly appreciated and tax receipts provided. We maintain a small sanctuary now for the many cats that were never adopted and they will live out their lives in a loving, safe home-type environment. No cats are ever caged.

The focus now is on cats and kittens since the Wimberley Adoption Group & Rescue (WAG) has formed to provide for the dogs. Contact WAG: or 512-847-3200.

ARF does collect dog and cat food for our Wimberley Crisis Bread Basket or others in our community who are having financial difficulty and need help feeding their pets.

SPAY/NEUTER SERVICES: ARF promotes and helps folks who need the EmanciPet Low Cost Spay/Neuter Mobile Clinic that comes to the Wimberley Brookshire Grocery parking lot the fourth Wednesday of each month.

Contact EmanciPet at or call 512-587-7729.

Other help with spay/neuter services:

Contact Prevent A Litter of Central Texas (PALS) or call 512-754-7257
Vouchers many times can be provided for dogs and sometimes cats.

ARF works closely with PAWS (and Marcia Sanderson who heads the trap/neuter/release program in Wimberley in association with the Austin Humane Society's program.

We also work with Thundering Paws in Dripping Springs and are in contact with many of the rescue groups in the surrounding area.

Always contact ARF if you need any more info on any of these services or other rescue questions, including wild life. Grief counseling is lovingly provided to help deal with older or ill pets.
