Newman's Story...

AARF only adopts in Richmond, Virginia and the surrounding area.

Hi, my name is Newman and I was rescued from a local pound after I was picked up as a stray. I had to sleep on cold concrete and I was given no medicine!

AARF fought to get me released from the pound early so that they could get me the medical help that I desperately needed!! They took me straight to the vet and found out that I was in real bad shape. I was given a bunch of medicine and then I went to a foster home to start recovering. Or so they thought. On Monday, I was not doing any better and was running a high fever, so I went back into the vet. I am underweight, have demodex mange, worms, an upper respiratory infection, I'm anemic, and my limbs and throat started swelling shut because of something called puppy strangles!! They are treating me with steroids, IV fluids, antibiotics, cephalexin, Ivermectin, pain killers, pepcid, and benedyrl. I am getting nutritious food and the proper diet to slowly gain some weight. My temperature finally went down so the doctors sent me home to my foster parents!!

Boy, I am so happy!! I have a long road of recovery but hopefully, I will be one handsome fellow real soon!!

AARF is in desperate need of donations to help pay my vet bills.

You can also stop by our adoption stands and donate - even a small amount will help.

For more information, contact aarfva@hotmail.com or visit us at our pet adoption stand Saturdays from 11-3 at the Petsmart on Libbie Ave and Broad St.
(I won't be able to make it to the stand for a while)

**We will be at the Pet Smart at Brook Road on Saturday for the MRPS event, from 11-3.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Newman, a Richmond Mastiff/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Mastiff/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Mastiff/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Richmond breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Mastiff/American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Mastiff/American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
