($5.00 donation to AARF)

dog We are so pleased to find a simple way (and basically free!) to help the AARF animals. For $5, we give you a Kroger gift card that already has $5 credit on it. Then each time you shop, load money on this gift card to pay for your groceries. AARF receives a portion of the money- how easy is that?

Email us at Subject : KrogerCare to get Krogering for AARF!
