Mission: To create a world where every loving dog and cat has a home, where every lonely person has a companion animal, and where children learn to care.Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation has a very interesting story. Tony, then Manager of the Oakland A’s came across a stray during a game between Oakland Athletics and the New York Yankees. Tony captured the stray, and looked to place it in a local shelter, but found that there was not a single no-kill shelter in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. That event inspired Tony and his wife Elaine to create the ARF to find homes for abandoned animals and help control pet overpopulation through spaying & neutering programs.
