About Our Rescue Group:In the past 11 years NAFA has been responsible for and assisted with the rescue of thousands of dogs and cats from puppy mills, catteries, class B dealers, backyard breeders, pet stores and individuals.
NAFA has no shelter. All animals are kept in foster homes to help promote mental and physical health. Volunteers give their time, supplies and love, but receive no monetary compensation. All donations are used for the direct care of the animals.

Our Adoption Process:The majority of our pets are kept in foster homes and come together only on Saturdays for Adoption from 1 to 4 pm at Petco in Jonesboro. Our adoption fee is $50.00. NAFA does long distance adoptions - individuals must be willing to drive to Jonesboro to meet the dog they are interested in and visit with our director. For individuals more than 60 miles away, NAFA must have a working relationship with a rescue or shelter in your area.
The procedure for adoption is …
Visit our pet adoption and meet the puppy. Complete a potential home questionnaire. Complete an Interview with the director. Not everyone who applies to adopt an animal is a good match.
If after those step you and the director agree that your home and the dog are a good match, a bandanna is placed on the dog and you complete the adoption with our adoption counselor.
The puppy has received the first set of vaccinations, deworming and is on heartworm preventative. Adult dogs are current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and on heartworm preventative.
All pets adopted from NAFA are microchipped and registered to your name and address.
We provide a bag of food of the type food the puppy has been eating, along with stress vitamins to help with the transition from the foster home and its litter mates to you.
We provide a reward tag for the dog to wear just in case it gets lost, someone will call for the reward and we can get the pet back to you.
All pets are covered by 30 days shelter care insurance.
The adoption contract you sign has 19 items of importance, the top four state that you agree to:
Come back the next Saturday after adoption to bring paperwork showing you have had the dog to the vet for its next set of vaccinations. (This can be done by fax if you live more than 1.5 hours away from Jonesboro)
Have the puppy spayed/neutered before it is 5 months of age and provide proof of this. Most adults are already altered unless our veterinarian suggests waiting for 30 to 60 days. Your adoption is not complete until proof of spay/neuter is received.
Take the pet to your veterinarian for the next set of vaccinations and to purchase heartworm preventative the Tuesday after you adopt.
Come back the fifth or sixth Saturday after adoption for a final check-in and mini training session. This is mandatory unless you live more than 2 hours away. Then it can be done by email or telephone.
Return the dog to NAFA should circumstances change and you are not able to keep the dog.
