Washington County, Mississippi

About Our Rescue Group:

ARRF is a very small group of volunteers who have taken on the monumental task of finding forever homes for the enormous number of homeless, stray dogs in Washington County. Before ARRF, the city of Leland euthanized dogs by shooting them. No adoption policies were in place. ARRF has finally given these forgotten animals a ray of hope for a better life.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are just beginning to get organized with adoption policies. We are primarily working with online adoptions and rescue groups. With more stringent and structured adoption policies for local adoptions, we will start in 2012 to offer our dogs for local adoption. Less stringent policies only resulted in adopted dogs soon being returned to our rescue group.

Our Adoption Process:

We currently are working with other rescue groups who help us adopt our dogs outside of the state of Mississippi. If a dog is adopted locally (within 50 miles of Leland, MS), an adoption application is required along with a copy of a valid driver's license. Personal references and veterinarian references are checked. If approved, then the adopter may take ownership of the dog upon paying $150 adoption fee. Follow up visits/contact is done at 1 week, 30 days, and 6 months. Only dogs who are spayed/neutered, have received all vaccines, negative on fecal are eligible for adoption.

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
