The adoption process

ARF requires potential adopters to fill out an adoption application.

  • We recommend prequalifying for adoption. You can put in a general application without a specific pet in mind. If you are approved, the application is good for one year. No need to fill out an application for each animal (unless requested). 

  • Once an application is submitted, it will be reviewed. The adoption coordinator will respond to the email you list on the application of its status. If approved, you can communicate through that email ( about finding the right animal fit for you.  Or stop in Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday 1-4 p.m. or Saturdays 12-3. Saturday meetings for dogs are limited, so during the week is best unless you have a Saturday appointment.

  • Check on this site for adoptable animals or sometimes our Facebook page, Muncie ARF, posts adoptable animals. We are also on If you see one that might be a good fit, email petapps@munciearf,com of your interest.
