Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a nationwide animal rescue and disaster response non-profit with a particular focus in the state of Mississippi. We are registered with the Massachusetts Department of Agriculture and adhere to all regulations set forth by the state.

About Our Rescue Group:

ARF started in 2005 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and because of the shocking treatment we saw many animals in the Deep South endure and the extremely high kill rates in their shelter systems we have stayed committed to helping animals with a focus in the state of Mississippi. Many of these wonderful animals would be killed in a shelter or abandoned outside if not for our continued efforts.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoptions fees are based on the state you live in. If you are a Massachusetts resident we are required by the Dept. of Agriculture to quarantine for a minimum of 48hrs. the animal you adopt from us. The cost for this quarantine is $120.00 per animal. Our fees are as follow:

Adult dogs 13 months to 5 years - MA resident $475, all others $425.00.
Adult dogs +5 years of age - MA resident $375, all others $325.00
Puppies 12 months and younger - MA resident $550, all others $500.00.

If pre-adoption neutering is not an option for your pup, a refund of $70 will be given to the adopter when proof of neuter is presented to us. Our adoption donation covers the transport to New England and exceptional vetting from our local veterinary teams down south, and local quarantining in MA. As well we reimburse our local rescues down south so they can continue their life saving mission. We do require you to fill out an application and provide a vet reference, and a home inspection may be requested. Every animal we adopt MUST be spayed/neutered and we reserve the right to request proof of this. Our adoption application is on our website at:

Thanks for rescuing!

Please note - we will not adopt a puppy to anyone who is not willing and committed to ensuring their new family member never reproduce. Spaying and neutering your pet contributes to efforts to reduce unwanted and homeless animals in the United States and your animal will be healthier. Our adoption fees are nonrefundable after 30 days. If for whatever reason your adoption is not suitable to you or your adoptee we require the animal be surrendered to us.

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.
