All our pups have medical issues and are always needing transport from different locations to the vets we use around the metro!
- Vets we commonly use:
- Gardner Animal Hospital
- Red Oak in Bucyrus
- Dearborn Animal Clinic in Mission

- Email email@example.com to help out
We rescue pups from all over the country and always need more drivers to help pick up these poor pups from the kill shelters and help deliver them to the barn or a foster home, you get to be the first bit of A&F love these pups receive!
- We need help everywhere, but mostly pull our animals from Wichita, Oklahoma City, rural Oklahoma, Eastern Kansas, Northern Arkansas, and St. Louis
