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.
