Adoption Process:

  • Submitting an online application or a paper application (if at one of our events)
  • Contact will be made within 5 days of receipt from the foster family or an ARAR board member
  • Vet reference check is completed to ensure other animals in home or prior animals were kept up to date on vaccines and are/were spayed/neutered
  • Meet and greet(s) scheduled with all family members living in the home as well as any other animals in the home
  • Home check will be performed by foster family or an ARAR board member to ensure the safety of the animal you are choosing to adopt. We will look to ensure the fence is secure and want to see where the animal will be kept for sleeping and feeding.

Adoption Terms:

  • Dog & Puppy adoption fee is $350.00
  • Cat & Kitten adoption fee is $125.00
  • Puppies 2-4 months old will receive age appropriate vaccinations. The adopter will take over responsibility for all vaccines left in the series as well as sterilization required after the date of adoption. They will be adopted out on a spay/neuter contract to be preformed by the time they are 6 months old.
  • Puppies and Dogs 5 months old and over will be adopted out with their full series of Distemper with Lepto (DHLPP), Bordatella vaccine, microchipped and will be spayed/neutered.
  • Cats & Kittens will fall under the same age guidelines for vaccines and spay/neuter adoption terms.
    Applications are reviewed daily by the Board members and approved applications are then distributed to the foster families.
  • The final determination is based off of the animal’s best chance at success. We do not adopt animals on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • ARAR works hand in hand with vets and other professionals to best determine the age and breed of our animals, but it is not guaranteed.
  • Animals adopted from ARAR must continue to be annually vaccinated for Distemper with Lepto (DHLPP) for the rest of their lives, as well as be on a Heartworm prevention medicine and Flea/Tick prevention medicine. This is approximately a $250/annual commitment.
  • Animals currently in the home of potential adopters must be spayed/neutered and up to date with their annual Distemper with Lepto (DHLPP) vaccine as well as be on Heartworm prevention and Flea/Tick prevention. No exceptions!
  • Fencing is highly recommended and most of the animals in our care will require it. However it is not a requirement.
