Berea Animal Rescue Friends (ARF) started in a family garage outside of Cleveland after a small group of animal lovers recognized the desperate housing and healthcare needs of homeless animals in the area. Now, 20 years later, ARF continues to help stray and abandoned animals by providing shelter, food, and medical necessities—as well as loving care and companionship—in a more formal facility for as long as needed. In addition to traditional adoption services for cats and dogs, ARF also runs temporary foster-care programs and partners with a correctional facility to operate a prison foster program in which dogs receive basic obedience training.
Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.

Dogs romp across the 80-acre working grain farm during their boarding playtime. With a schedule that includes three walks a day, the boarding services invite dogs of all sizes to play and rest for days at a time. In addition to boarding, the dog lovers at Farm Life Kennels groom pups of all hair lengths, cleaning their ears, clipping nails, and conditioning coats.
