Paws up to Mr. Tucker, our Basenji mix, who wagged his way right into his new humans’ hearts. As well as to Romeo, our Papillon mix, who never left his fosters side. Kittens are at the ARF house! Reserve a couple today!

Meet Molly II. She is a young and playful Jack Russell-Basenji mix. She is new to our pack, so she is learning leash rules, house training, and basic commands. Come in Saturday to see Molly and maybe take her for a walk.


Many of you may recognize “Girl” as the stray who wandered our streets for many years and was known as Hobo. Here she is in all of her glory, with a beautiful coat of Aussie fur, tail wagging for the walk, and a paw up for all humans. Girl needs a home here in the cool mountain air. She will be at ARF on Saturday for viewing and playing.

Amy is back! A young Chihuahua, she can be visited at ARF along with the rest of the pack from Anza. Amy loves to go for her walks, have lap time, and is always ready for the treats. And she comes with her own wardrobe of sweaters for the winter.


Everyone has room for a teacup or two. Chihuahua’s that is. Charlie Brown and Chip are part of the Anza gang. They are both good with other four-leggeds, even the feline crowd. Charlie will be in your purse in no time, while Chip tends to just skip around.
