My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Taffy is one of our longer term residents due to being extremely scared and shy. She can be sweet and likes to take treats, but she is going to need a very patient, gentle person or family to help her acclimate to a new home. There is at least one volunteer here that can pet on her and pick her up, she just needs a good bit of time to get there with new people.  She is not recommened for kids under 12 and does have a past bite history.

Some of our dogs are adopted very quickly.  If you are truly interested in a dog fill out an application ASAP.  If you take the time to email a question someone will already be ahead of you with a completed application.  You can find all the information we have about a particular cat/dog at the link below as well.  Then click the adopt button to fill out an application.

Fill out an application at the link below.  Find the dog/cat you are interested in and click the adopt button.  That will take you to an application.  Once approved you will be called for an appointment to meet your possible new family member, or at that time you can meet the other animals as well.  You must include 3 references with phone numbers for you application to be processed.

Adoption fee is $150 for all dogs over 6 months old, $200 for large breed puppies under 6 months, $250 for small breed puppies.  All adoptions include, spay/neuter, vaccines, a heartworm test, and a free 1 year membership to our 5 acre ARF Park.  For other dog questions please email

We do adopt out of state, but the adopter must travel to ARF to meet the dog they are looking to adopt.  They must have an approved application before traveling to meet the dog.  We do allow small dogs that are eligible to fly in the cabin of a plane.  We DO NOT allow dogs to travel in the cargo area of the plane under any circumstances.  Any dog that is adopted can of course go by personal vehicle.  We do not allow dogs to be transported "pony express style" where they are passed from driver to driver.

More about this rescue

ARF is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) all volunteer organization. Our rescue/adoption sanctuary is home to an average of 30 cats/kittens and 15-25 rescue dogs. Some rescues are kept in foster homes. We are located on 18 acres which includes our rescue/adoption sanctuary and a 5-acre membership dog park. Future plans include additional buildings and a memorial park.

We do not receive any monetary assistance from city, county or state agencies. Our rescue/adoption facility is operated by volunteers who are willing to open their hearts to care for those who have been abandoned. Some will be adopted and some will never be adopted, but they will always have a safe and loving home at ARF.

We believe that the spay or neuter of pets is the only solution to pet overpopulation.
