Know someone who spends a considerable amount of time checking out pics of cute pups and kittens? Pick them up a copy of the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons (ARF) 2018 Yearbook.
A new annual tradition for Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons – who previously published its yearly ARF Pet Calendar, the Yearbook shines the light on adorable ARFans while highlighting the amazing work that the organization does through furtastic shots of ARF rescues captured by photographer Francine Fleischer as part of the #ARFrescuelove campaign. ARF launched the social media campaign earlier this year. Spearheaded by ARF adopter and Kraftworks founder and creative director, Neil Kraft along with the assistance of ARF Board member Amy Sullivan, the campaign’s goal is to bring awareness to ARF’s rescue efforts on a more comprehensive level.
The Yearbook photo shoot took place last winter when Fleischer used the ARF conference room as a makeshift studio. #ARFrescuelove photographs debuted this past June during an exhibition at Madoo Conservancy in Sagaponack.
“Our 2018 Yearbook showcases ARF’s lifesaving work through 60 portraits of ARF rescues taken by photographer Francine Fleischer,” Jennifer DiClemente, ARF Director of Development, shared.
It also showcases loving portraits of ARF’s friends documented by their human friends. “It highlights ARFans rescued and adopted over the course of this year and also includes photos of beloved pets submitted by our supporters,” DiClemente noted.
All sales of the full-color, 8.5″ x 8.5″ hardbound edition support the animals at ARF.
“The book is a celebration of the love that cats and dogs bring to our lives and helps to support ARF’s work,” DiClemente added.
The ARF 2018 Yearbook is $25 and available online or at the ARF Adoption Center and ARF Thrift Shop.
ARF has rescued more than 25,000 cats and dogs since its inception in 1974. In addition to actively rescuing cats and dogs, the organization provides quality care and offers refuge until forever homes can be found.
The Adoption Center is located at 124 Daniels Hole Road in East Hampton and the ARF Thrift Shop is located at 17 Poxabogue Lane in Sagaponack. For more information, call 631-537-0400 or visit arfhamptons.org.
