Animal Refuge Foundation

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

ARFhouse is a sanctuary for abandoned and abused dogs. We are their advocates. ARFhouse tries to accept any dog who doesn’t have a home. At any time, we house and care for around 350 dogs.  ARFhouse spays or neuters, and provides needed medical attention, to the dogs who arrive.  The last step is re-homing the dogs. Although some dogs will stay at ARFhouse for life, we strive to find them love and care in a home environment.

Dogs for Adoption

The ARFhouse Adoption Program allows some of the animals to be available for adoption to suitable owners. For those animals which are not adopted and will stay at ARFhouse for life, we work hard at ensuring that a prospective owner has the level of commitment necessary to properly care for a dog.

Make a Donation

If you want to give a gift to an animal lover who “has it all”, honor a loved one who has passed, or 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 at least $20 per month, which is automatically charged using PayPal. We will send you quarterly photos of the dog you choose to sponsor, including a written letter with updates about your Pal.
