This is the AARF logo, which shows three animals on a yellow life raft: a small black and white kitten, a larger brown dog with a collar and a small black and white dog. Grey clouds suggest an urgent need to find good homes for these animals. Floating on blue waves suggesting the Caribbean sea that surrounds Anguilla, the raft shows that these animals have a protector in AARF and its supporters. Finally, the sun peeks out from behind the clouds, representing hope for these deserving animals.

AARF Logo Updated

In 2010 as part of our 10 year anniversary, we asked Jackie Wavrunek (who crafted the original logo in 2001) to update our logo. The new logo is similar to the old one, keeping the imagery we like: animals needing saving are on a life raft , the rising sun shows hope for their welfare and blue water representing the Caribbean.

For the new logo, we removed the goat, since AARF only deals with dogs and cats.

(AARF does not deal with farm or wild animals; the Department of Agriculture should be called for questions or issues related to those kinds of wildlife, and animal cruelty issues are covered by the Royal Anguilla Police Force or RAPF.)

So we replaced the goat with an larger and older looking dog, since we often get older animals surrendered to the shelter. And we want to convey that they are definitely worth saving and make fine pets too.

Finally, we wanted a collar, which represents our feeling that collars should be worn to identify a dog that has an owner.

We think the new logo looks great, thanks to Jackie. Visit Jackie’s graphics design site to see her portfolio, including her other Anguilla designs and work she has done for other rescue organizations.

The new logo has a cat, older dog with collar and a smaller puppy on the raft. The 2001 logo had a cat, a goat and a small dog on the life raft:
