Animal Rescue Friends (ARF) is a foster-based no-kill dog rescue. We save dogs from the local shelters as well as take in owner surrenders when we have available fosters.
ARF (Animal Rescue Friends) is a foster based rescue. We are an IRS approved 501c3 charity. We are run solely by volunteers so every penny goes directly to the animals. We are committed to do what we can to help save the lives of dogs that may be put to sleep. We will not over-extend ourselves and take on more then we have fosters for.
Our Adoption Process:
If interested in adopting; please fill out an Adoption Application located on our website animalrescuefriends.org. Once approved for the adoption there is an Adoption Contract that will be filled out. Our adoption donation fees depend on the dog (usually between $160 - $250) and we take cash, check and credit. Most importantly is that we want to find the perfect home for our dogs!
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.
