ARF’N Adoption Process

Adoption Procedures

Final decision takes from 2 days to 2 weeks, depending on # of applications for the pet you want and the work at our jobs.

1. Complete an application.
2. ARF’N confirms you own your home or your landlord OKs having animal.
3. ARF’N calls your vet reference.
4. Meet & Greet in your home because animals act differently in different environments and with other animals you may have. Possible trial period, if needed, to make sure the animal fits well into your family unit & schedule.
5. Decision of ARF’N adoption committee; final adoption.

Cost of animal depends on age, adoptability of animal, whether pure-bred or not, and any unusual vet costs ARF’N incurred. ALL fees and donations go to ARF’N’s rescue activities – no one is paid for their work.

Dogs – $75 to $250
Cats – $20 to $50

Vetting: All animals are vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed, and deflea’d. In addition, dogs are tested for heartworm, and cats are tested for feline AIDS & leukemia.

All animals must be returned to ARF’N if they cannot be kept for any reason during their lifetime.
