Adoption Application

Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in an ARF animal! We feel strongly about matching the right pet to the right home, and ask that you please fill out this application and honestly. ARF staff members will review your application, call your vet and/or personal references, and will discuss your application with you. Please give us at least 3 days to process your application.

We consider each application carefully because we want this pet to remain with you for the rest of its life. With that in mind, please consider your future plans to make sure a pet fits into these plans. If you plan to move, start a family, travel, or make other major life changes, please make sure these changes include your pet.

Finally, please be aware that you will be required to sign an adoption contract before taking the pet home. If you are not willing to sign the agreement, you will not be allowed to adopt an ARF animal.

    Before starting the application, please read the following:

    I understand that it may take at least 72 hours after submitting this application to allow ARF to process and check references. I will fill out the application completely and honestly. I understand that skipped answers could lead to a delay in the application processing time. I understand that ARF requires all animals in my care to be spayed/neutered prior to adopting an ARF animal unless deemed unsafe by my veterinarian. I understand and confirm that all animals in my care must be vaccinated as directed by my veterinarian. I understand and confirm that all animals in my care are on flea control and heartworm prevention as directed by my veterinarian. I understand that in some cases ARF may require a home visit. I understand that ARF reserves the right to deny ANY adoption. I understand that pets are A LIFETIME commitment and will include a new pet in my plans for the next 10 to 15 years. In the event that I adopt and am unable to keep an ARF animal for the entirety of its life, I understand that it will need to be returned to ARF.

Big news!  Effective immediately, ARF cannot take in any more animals until further notice due to construction upgrades. We are running a cat adoption special, $20 for adult cats and $40 for kittens under 6 months of age through August 4, 2017. The dog adoption center is CLOSED for visiting hours. Dog meet & greets and adoptions are by appointment only. All adopters must complete adoption applications either via our website, or in person Monday-Friday, 10am-noon or 1pm-5pm, or Saturday noon-3pm. Please keep in mind that adoption applications take up to 3 business days to process. We do not do same-day adoptions because we check vet and personal references to make sure our babies are going to capable, loving homes.  Thank you!

Friends, it is with an extremely heavy heart we write this. Today, we had to make an excruciating decision. Hazel Grace's xrays today showed what we had feared. Hazel was still unable to have bowel movements on her own, and would not regain use of her bowels. For the last 5 days, Hazel knew love and showed us unconditional love. We had three veterinarians examine xrays and discuss options. All 3 were in agreement that her prognosis was poor and long term quality of life was poor due to infection risks, etc. As hard as it was to make this decision, it was hard every day to come in and see her in the condition she was in. ARF staff were with her at the end, and we want everyone to know if there was anything we could do to possibly make her life better, we would have done it. We wish we had better news to share, but we also are thankful that her last days were happy days and she was loved, warm, and had a full belly. As the vet said, had she not come in, she would have passed away out in the elements sooner rather than later left in the shape she was in. ... See MoreSee Less
