Who We Are ARFhouse is a sanctuary for abandoned and abused dogs; we are their advocates, and if space is available, we accept any dog who doesn't have a home. At any time, we house and care for 350 dogs, which is what space allows. We spay or neuter all the dogs who arrive, and provide them with medical attention they need. The next step is re-homing the dogs, which takes time and effort. Many dogs will stay at ARFhouse for life, but we want those who can find love and care in a home environment to have the best chance to do so.
The ARFhouse Adoption Program allows some of the ARFhouse animals to be available for adoption to suitable owners. Since those animals which are not adopted will stay at ARFhouse for life, ARFhouse works hard at insuring that a prospective owner has the level of commitment necessary to properly care for a dog.

The Be-A-Pal Program lets you sponsor the dog of your choice at ARFhouse. The dogs in our "Be-A-Pal" program are a combination of dogs that may not be suitable for a family environment, have special health needs that require frequent attention, or are residents of our Senior Sanctuary. For $20 a month we will send you periodic photos of the dog you choose to sponsor. Through your support and ARFhouse's caring volunteers, these dogs are given a second chance at a good life.

"Juliette", "Tango" and "Bravo" were found in a cardboard box at the side of the road. They were emaciated and starving with plenty of parasites. In only 2 weeks of care, they had put on weight and they were ready for their forever homes, which all three found the weekend of December 6th.
A Heart-Warming Rescue Story
"Cadillac" appeared on some rural property. He was emaciated, and looking for food. A family was feeding him, but their dog kept going to the edge of their pasture and attacking him. They asked us to rescue him and we did. He had lacerations and punctures and required stitches, but is okay now. He's a typical Great Dane (he's probably a mix). He likes people and gets along with the "lady" he's with.
