No matter where you are located, there is an animal rescue
or shelter organization within driving distance.
When searching for your next animal companion, don't forget
to look at your nearest animal rescue or shelter first. Even
if you're searching for a pure bred pet, many shelters and rescues
have a great selection of both pure and mixed breed animals
ready for your loving home.
ARF encourages you to adopt pets that fit your lifestyle and
ability to provide for and love unconditionally. However, we
do not encourage animal hoarding. Animal hoarding results in
over-populations of animals in a home that does not have adequate
space, food, sanitary conditions and human contact in order
for the animals to thrive and survive. If you or someone you
know suffer from animal hoarding, please contact your local
animal shelter for assistance.
