Adoption Application

Thank you for choosing Animal Refuge Foundation (ARFhouse) to adopt your companion animal.  It is our goal to make a happy, compatible and lasting match between you and your dog.

All adopted dogs will be fully vetted prior to adoption. This includes: current vaccinations, spay/neuter, heartworm test (if 6 months of age or older), deworming, flea/tick prevention and a microchip.  Additional procedures will be done as necessary, such as full blood panels for seniors, dentals, etc.  The requested donation to adopt a dog is $200.00.

To begin the adoption process, the following must be in place:
•  You must be at least 21 years of age and have current identification reflecting your present address and telephone number.
•  If you are a renter, you must provide a copy of your lease or your landlord’s phone number.  Please ensure your rental agreement indicates no breed or weight restrictions. Oftentimes, people are unaware of the fact that these exist until they are ready to bring a companion animal home.

***  PLEASE NOTE:   All applications are considered, but not all are approved.  If you have not received a response from us within 48 hours of applying or have a question about your application and the process to adopt, please contact us via e-mail only, as our adoption counselors will be able to respond more timely than if a phone message is left.
