The Arrow Fund is a Kentuckiana-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides veterinary treatment to animals who have been victims of extreme torture, abuse, or neglect. After securing care for these animals our focus extends to holding the abuser responsible for his or her actions. We strive to educate the public regarding the ongoing problem of animal cruelty and advocate strengthening our local, state, and national animal welfare laws.
We are a volunteer-based organization led by a long-time animal rights volunteer, Rebecca Eaves, and overseen by an active Board of Directors. Neither Rebecca nor members of our Board are paid for their services.
When The Arrow Fund is contacted, and the case fits our criteria, we take legal possession of the animal and transport him or her to an appropriate veterinary facility to secure treatment. Following treatment, the animal recovers in a medical foster home, where he or she is also given the chance to acclimate to living indoors, and be assessed/retrained in preparation for a permanent home. It usually takes an extended period of time for the animal to recover physically and emotionally, but we work with them patiently to get him or her to the right forever-home.
Once the animal is receiving treatment, The Arrow Fund works with the proper authorities to pursue prosecution of the abusers. We also work with the news media and legislators to keep our community informed.
