Due to COVID-19 we are open by appointment only with approved application.

* You will be contacted with an appointment time
* Visit ARF to meet the cat/dog you are interested in adopting
* Pay adoption fee & sign adoption agreement
Adoption fees - $60 for cats/$150 for dogs. Dog adoption fee includes a complimentary year membership to our private dog park (ARF Park). Adoption fee includes spay/neuter, all appropriate tests and vaccinations.
Your adoption application will be reviewed, references checked and landlords will be contacted if you rent. We want to make sure our rescues are going to their forever home, so our goal is to make the best possible match between dog and adopter. Being first to apply does not mean you will be the chosen applicant. We do not ship our rescues.
Once the application is approved, you will be contacted for an appointment. Keep in mind you will need to prepare for your new family member to come home!
For dogs/puppies you will will need a collar/leash & ID tag, dog house or dog bed, food/water dishes, food and treats of course!
For cats you will need a litter box, litter, food/water dishes, food, treats, collar and ID tag. You will also need an appropriate size of pet carrier to bring your new pet home and for future vet visits or emergencies.
