We welcome specific questions. Due to high volume of applications, we may not be able to respond immediately. Your patience is appreciated.

If an animal is on our website, it is still available but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, it is in your best interest to submit an application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. 

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

As an all-volunteer, foster home based organization, ARF does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals. The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we must give priority to pre-approved applicants.


**COURTESY POST**  ARF is assisting an outside party in finding Rey a home.

Hey, hey, hey! My name is Rey! Let's just go ahead and get to the point, shall we? I'm an American Bulldog/Staffordshire Terrier mix looking for a forever family to love me, feed me, treat me like a princess, a playmate and the perfect sweetheart I am. There! Now we can go ahead and talk more about how wonderful I am and what kind of family I'm interviewing for!
First, a bit more about me! I'm just under two years old, around 50lbs, spayed, up to date on my vaccinations and housebroken! I love kids and think they are just about the best thing ever! I'm playful and think I have a pretty great sense of humor. I'd think an awesome active couple or single guy or gal who wants a buddy would be perfect!
People mean everything to me, and I love working to please them. That said, it'd be nice if my adopter wasn't new to this whole responsible for a dog thing! I really want to learn how to be the best dog I can be, so someone with some experience would be awesome! I'm not a huge fan of other dogs or cats. I think I'm enough pup for one family, and want to be the center of your attention! OH! And you have to like kisses. I give kisses. A lot. =)
My perfect family or adopter will be an active one! Let's go running! How about a walk? I love them and with a few reminders to not pull, I do really well. Let's play with some toys! I love to goof around and be a jokester. The best place for this is the backyard! Oh! I'll need a fenced in yard to romp in, I'm not budging on that one! I want to stretch my legs and go go go! But...I also like to relax. Let's watch TV and chill on the sofa! I'm a champion cuddler, you know! I don't HAVE to sleep with you in bed. But if you insist, I guess I'm okay with that! ;)
As much as I like to hang out, I'm also content to be alone and relax in the house while you are at work or out and about. I'm not destructive or mischievous!
Now, here's a recap of what I'm looking for in a family:
-Active and playful
-Previous experience with owning and training a dog
-Willing to teach me new tricks and help perfect my manners
-Have a fenced yard
-Love kisses
-No other dogs or cats. Remember, I'm the princess!
-Have lots of time for me
-Live near the treat and dog toy store...just kidding! We can just shop online!
What do you think? Let's set a date and see if we click! Fill out an application to get started. I'll take a look at it and let you know what I think!

Preference for Rey will be given to an adopter living locally, and who is an experienced dog owner.
