Surrendering Animals

SURRENDERING ANIMALS

When an animal is surrendered to ARF:

  • The animal will be checked by a veterinarian, & any necessary medical treatments will be completed at ARF’s discretion.
  • ARF will evaluate the animal & attempt to find him/her a permanent, loving home.
  • ARF will only euthanize the animal if it is absolutely necessary, such as the animal is extremely aggressive, or suffering from illness, injury, or is in pain and cannot be healed.
  • By surrendering the animal, you agree to give up all future rights to the animal, including, but not limited to: visitation, reclaiming, & any other rights that you may have had as an owner of the animal.
  • ARF reserves the right to withhold any & all information pertaining to the animal from you & any person acting on your behalf.

While ARF wishes that we could help every animal in need, there are times when we are unable to take a pet or a stray animal that you have found. ARF will intake surrendered animals whenever we can if:

  1. The animal is not aggressive toward other animals or people.
  2. We have adequate space.
  3. The animal is relatively healthy.

Furthermore, every situation with every animal is unique.

 

If you need to surrender an animal, please call and be prepared with the following information:

  • Animal’s age and sex
  • If the animal has been fixed and is up-to-date on shots
  • Is the animal good around dogs, cats, and kids
  • Why are you needing to surrender the animal

 

Please be prepared to provide photos of the animal, veterinary records, & know that at the intake meeting, we will temperament test the animal to make sure that it is not aggressive toward humans and other animals.

Adoption/Visitation Hours:

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: 1-5pm
Saturday: Noon-3pm

It’s not throwback Thursday, but we wanted to share a picture of Terri from about 18 years ago. We are wrapping up a ten day donation drive in her name, and will announce on Facebook the amount raised in her honor at the end of the day tomorrow. We truly can’t think of a way to honor Terri more than helping to keep her dream going. So here’s to Terri Panszi, her 60 years of life, and the second chance she has given to countless animals along the way! Happy early birthday and we hope you know how much we all appreciate your selflessness every day of the year! ... See MoreSee Less

Our hearts are broken for our dear friend and long time ARF family member Kristie Lowe and her husband Todd, as they mourn the loss of their beloved son TJ who was tragically taken last week in a traffic accident. Kristie shared her love for animals with TJ, who visited ARF many times and as recently as last week. His passing will leave a hole in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. In the days and weeks ahead, we will hold Kristie, Todd, and their entire family close, and we are here to help with anything that they may need. Please keep the Lowe family in your thoughts during this difficult time, and offer a prayer that in time they will find comfort and draw strength from the love and support of those around them. ...
