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 June of 1993. Our goal is to rescue orphaned animals and place them in loving homes.

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. Our adoption/donation fee is $186 per dog due at the time of the delivery of the dog to your home.
