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

Maggie is back from her foster home and doing great! She is eating, drinking, and playing like a dog should be! She is still very timid, but wags her tail non stop and let’s us pet her and eats out of our hands. She still has a ways to go before she is as happy and confident as most dogs, but compared to a few weeks ago we are thrilled with her progress!!!!! We also want to thank everyone who has donated for her care. We couldn’t do what we do without you all!!! ... See MoreSee Less

It’s time once again to start preparing for one of our favorite activities of the year... the Thanksgiving Feast for the ARF babies! This year’s celebration will be held on Saturday November 24 at noon. Please consider sharing your Thanksgiving leftovers of turkey, mashed potatoes, and vegetables ( nothing with onions) with the ARF dogs and cats so that they too can fill their tummies with the yummy comfort food we all enjoy at Thanksgiving! We also need paper plates for the event. Food can be dropped off at ARF on Saturday the 24th between 10-11 AM. We will be distributing the Thanksgiving meals to the pups and kitties starting at 12. We are also in need of volunteers to help feed the ARF kids....email...nikki@munciearf.com if you’d like to come and join the fun!!! ... See MoreSee Less

He's 17 years old and has lost most of his hair on his back end. If he made it through the night.. hes probably freezing, hungry, and scared. He never stays out at night. He is friendly. Meows really loud when wants something or attention. Please share and help us find him. He hates to be cold. Missing from Eaton Indiana. No collar. Not chipped.
