Each of our pets is examined upon arrival and is provided with ordinary, or in some cases extraordinary veterinary care. They are routinely monitored while awaiting adoption, but there is always a chance that an animal is incubation a disease without showing any clinical signs.
Do you understand this? (Required)
Our adoption fee of $200.00 includes spay/neuter, if not already done; micro-chip, first vaccinations, for puppies or adults; routine worming, and any needed medicine the animal has received in our care. If you adopt a puppy, you MUST provide vaccinations until the pet is at least six months old! After that, yearly exams and vaccinations are required.
IN THE EVENT THAT AN ADOPTION DOES NOT WORK OUT, ARF requires the pet be RETURNED so that we may re-home it. HOWEVER, 72 HOURS AFTER RECEIVING THE PET, PLEASE CONSIDER YOUR ADOPTION FEE A TAX-DEDUCTIBLE DONATION TO ARF.
