Established in 2021

The Anatolian Rescue Foundation (ARF) was founded on the principles of protecting and preserving the Anatolian Shepherd dog in the United States of America. We do this by assisting with the rescue, foster, evaluation and dog-centered placement of purebred Anatolian Shepherd dogs domestically.

ARF is supported by fanciers of the Anatolian Shepherd dog breed from across the United States.

ARF is the official breed rescue endorsed by the Anatolian Shepherd Dog Club of America (ASDCA).
