How to Adopt

Cats for Adoption
Dogs for Adoption
Adoption Application

Use the blue buttons to search for available cats and dogs and to submit an Adoption Application. Visits to ARF will only be arranged after an adoption coordinator has reviewed your application.

While reviewing your application, we will contact your veterinarian. Please give them permission to speak with us or your application cannot be processed. 

All animals have received vet examinations and vaccines, and been spayed/neutered.

Adoption fees help us cover a small part of the cost to care for each cat and dog while they wait for a loving home, and aids us in rescuing the next animal in need.

ARF can accept only cash for payment of adoption fees. Please note that we do not accept adoption fees online at this time.

  • You must be 18 years or older to adopt
  • All potential adopters must fill out an application and come into the shelter by appointment to meet the animal they are interested in.
  • Sorry, we will not “ship” animals nor hold an animal for anyone.
  • If you’re looking to adopt a single kitten, someone must be home most of the day or you must have another cat as a companion.
  • We do not adopt puppies to anyone with children under 4 years old.
  • If you are looking to adopt a dog and already have dog(s) at home, they will need to come with you to meet the potential adoptee.
  • We can deny any applicant we do not find to be a match for a particular animal or fit for adoption.

ARF is open by appointment only. 

To visit, first fill out an application. ARF adoption coordinators will review your application and then contact you to arrange a meet & greet.

If you don’t have a specific animal in mind, that’s ok! Just let us know you’d like to meet our available cats or dogs, and anything else that would help us match you up with the right pet.

These are just a few of our adoptable pets! Use the buttons above to see them all.

Can't Adopt? Sponsor a Pet!

Many people are interested in helping ARF but do not have the time to volunteer or the room in their homes for another pet. This is why we created our sponsorship program.
