Partners in Preparedness

partners in preparedness

Each month, we feature a partner who has done outstanding work to prepare their organization, staff, services, and facilities for emergencies.

Allied Rockaway Foundation for Animal Recreation and Fitness
Allied Rockaway Foundation for Animal Recreation and Fitness (ARF-ARF) provides a healthy resource to foster the fitness and social growth of dogs and their owners, and educates pet owners and citizens in the Rockaway community about proper pet care. ARF-ARF is a steward of the Rockaway Freeway Dog Park — one of the largest official dog parks within the five boroughs — and works closely with the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation. ARF-ARF also has sponsored various activities to assist the homeless animal population in New York City.

As a Partner in Preparedness, ARF-ARF understands the importance of emergency preparedness and recovery. After Hurricane Sandy, ARF-ARF assisted local groups and residents in the community, and continues to provide supplies to those in need. Additionally, the organization provides pet preparedness information through special events and social media; several members of ARF-ARF are part of the local Community Emergency Response Team, while others are certified in pet disaster recovery.
