Additional adoption info

Our fees are as follow:

Puppies 12 months and younger - $650 MA resident
Adult dogs 13 months to 5 years - $600.00 MA resident
Adult dogs +5 years of age - $500 MA resident

If pre-adoption neutering is not medically advised before adoption, a refund of $50 will be given to the adopter when proof of neuter is presented to us. NOTE - you are required to submit proof of spay/neuter once that has been completed. This is a strict requirement of our organization and the MA Department of Agriculture/Animal Welfare, and no exceptions are allowed without a written explanation from a licensed veterinarian. Our adoption donation covers the transport to New England and exceptional vetting (2-3 vaccines for puppies - 2 for adults) from our veterinary teams down south, and local quarantining in MA. We require you to fill out an application, adoption contract (once approved), provide a vet reference, and request a home inspection.

Thanks for rescuing!

Please note - we will not adopt a puppy to anyone who is not willing and committed to ensuring their new family member never reproduce. Spaying and neutering your pet contributes to efforts to reduce unwanted and homeless animals in the United States, and your animal will be healthier. Our adoption fees are non-refundable after 14 days. If, for whatever reason, your adoption is not suitable for you or your adoptee, we require the animal to be surrendered to us. NO EXCEPTIONS.

About Animal Rescue Front, Inc.

Founded in 2005 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and because of the shocking treatment we saw many animals in the Deep South endure, and the extremely high kill rates in their shelter systems. ARF is committed to helping animals with a focus in the state of Mississippi. Many of these wonderful animals would be killed in a shelter or abandoned outside if not for our continued efforts.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

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.
