Caring for our Dogs

AARF of Richmond, Virginia

AARF is an acronym that stands for Animal Adoption and Rescue Foundation. We are a Richmond, Virginia based, non-profit, all volunteer, non-euthanizing organization founded in May of 1993. Our goal is to rescue orphaned animals and place them in loving homes. Find out more about us. . Meet our board members,

Saturday Stand Hours 11:00 to 2:00

Our summer dog stand hours will be 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM until after Labor Day


There are so many dogs that would cherish a loving home. AARF tries to find fulfilling and suitable matches for all foster animals. We only adopt in the Richmond, Va and surrounding areas.

We have an adoption application that may be picked up at our adoption stand. Our adoption/donation fee is $175 per dog due at the time of the delivery of the dog to your home.
