Four paws up to Max, the husky/shepherd mix, now known as Luke. Luke has found his forever home, and is said to be living the life of “Riley.”

Speaking of Riley, she is still searching for her forever home. Young and full of energy, this shepherd mix would love a day filled with walks, hikes, and of course, treats. Eager to learn, Riley proves to be a good student, and will always get an “A” in loyalty.

Speaking of loyalty, one will never find a more loyal companion than Duke. This pure chow chow shows wisdom in age along with youthful energy. When the day is done, Duke will still be by your side.

Side-by-side is where you’ll find Charlie and Leonardo. Sharing mice toys, balls of string or breakfast, these two young cats will bring many smiles to any day. Charlie is a male orange tabby, and Leonardo is a sleek gray shorthair. Together or alone, their curiosity will bring years of enjoyment. ARF has several dogs available for adoption.


Winston the American Staffordshire, Hobo the Australian shepherd mix, and Chip the shepherd/mastiff mix will be at ARF on the weekend with leash in paw. Each has their own energy, and more than ready to enjoy summer playtime with a forever friend.

Annie, the Chihuahua/min pin mix, and Bobby, the applehead Chihuahua have a special place in their hearts for you too.
