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 can be picked up at our adoption stand or email us for an application or you can download an application here.
