Since 2008 CARF has been able to make a difference in the lives of thousands of dogs in Curaçao. Sadly, a lot of animals still remain in terrible conditions waiting for a second chance at a happy life. We can’t help them without financial help from our supporters.  Make a donation to CARF today and help make a difference. On behalf of all the animals in need: “THANK YOU!”


The ultimate goal of rescuing stray dogs is to find them a loving and caring forever home where they get a second chance at life. Rescued dogs have usually seen both sides of life and that’s why they appreciate the little things like a safe place to sleep, regular meals and fun activities with their humans. They will reward you every day with their love, loyalty, and companionship.  Adopting a CARFIE will bring so much fun and joy to your entire family.


Fostering a CARFIE is an amazing and rewarding experience! As a fosterer, you get to teach a dog that they can trust humans and other animals again. You will show a CARFIE how to feel safe and how to experience love.  In doing so, you’ll play a key role in giving your CARFIE a chance for a better life.


We are always looking for volunteers who want to join the CARF team. With well over a hundred dogs in our care, we’re super busy and grateful for any help that our volunteers can offer.
