ARF staff members will review your application, call your vet and/or personal references, and will discuss your application with you. Please give us at least 3 days to process your application.
We consider each application carefully because we want this pet to remain with you for the rest of its life. With that in mind, please consider your future plans to make sure a pet ﬁts into these plans. If you plan to move, start a family, travel, or make other major life changes, please make sure these changes include your pet.
Finally, please be aware that you will be required to sign an adoption contract before taking the pet home. If you are not willing to sign the agreement, you will not be allowed to adopt an ARF animal.
