About Our Rescue Group:

The Animal Relief Foundation is a non-profit organization located in Elko, Nevada. We are THE HUMANE SOCIETY for Elko County. We are NOT the City of Elko Animal Shelter. The animals you see on our page are from cases of animal abuse or neglect.


We want to see to it that responsible pet owners go to local shelters where they will find a wonderful pet to adopt, and actually save the life of that animal. To help reduce the number of unwanted litters being born and ending up in shelters, ARF will continue to promote our low cost spay/neuter assistance program. Incidents of cruelty to animals are rampant, and pet overpopulation continues to be a serious problem. Every day in the United States, more than 70,000 puppies and kitten are born. When this number is compared to the 10,000 human births each day, it's clear that there can never be enough homes for all these animals.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption Fees: $125.00

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
