Animal Refuge Foundation

A Non-Profit 501(c)(3) Organization

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 the 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.

Adopt a Dog

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 ensuring that a prospective owner has the level of commitment necessary to properly care for a dog.

Memorial Donations

To give a gift to an animal lover who “has it all’; to honor a loved one who has passed; to give back in the name of a beloved pet who is gone but not forgotten, ARFhouse offers Memorial Donations that are featured in our quarterly newsletter. We also send a personalized card as a thank you to those who wish to honor that “Special Someone”.

Sponsor a Pet

Our Be a Pal Program allows you to virtually “adopt” the dog of your choice through a monetary donation of $20 per month, that is deducted automatically through PayPal. We will send you quarterly photos of the dog you choose to sponsor, as well as a written letter updating you on what’s been happening and what’s new with your Pal for that quarter.

If you are interested in adopting a dog, please visit our Adoptable Dogs page and fill out an Adoption Application if anyone catches your eye!

Due to Covid-19, our adoption events held at Petsmart have been canceled until further notice.
