Please help ACARF continue its mission.

Welcome to the Allen County Animal Rescue Facility! We are dedicated to saving, rehabilitating, and finding homes for the homeless dogs and cats of our region.

Located in LaHarpe, Kansas, our organization was founded by a grassroots movement of caring citizens.  Prior to their effort, the lost and abandoned animals in our area had very little chance of being saved.

We are proud to say that we do not euthanize for time or space.  Rather, we dedicate ourselves to making every effort to find safe, loving, and permanent homes for our animals, as well as utilizing wonderful rescue resources to help us in placing these wonderful pets.

ACARF receives no funding from any government entity, and is dependent on donations for survival.  Our hope is that the good people of our area, as well as friends of animals everywhere, will help our shelter as we work diligently to help the dogs and cats who need us so much.

new location for second chance

The Second Chance store is an amazing shop whose profits all go to benefit the great animals at ACARF.  Our store recently moved to a new location on the square in Iola, Kansas—The Market Place, which is a fun group of shops together under one roof!  Second Chance can be found in the back room, on the east side. 

With new things coming in all of the time, you never know what wonderful bargain you might find.  And please remember that your shopping experience is not only fun, it’s an act of great kindness and generosity.  Our shelter needs your support!
