K9 Beanie Now Known as Oscar

Beanie was in a foster home for almost a month before he became available for adoption! He was adopted into a home with another ARF dog now called Mr Spock (was Squirt).

His adopter's had this to say about him
He is very attached to us all and we love having him in our house.
Our favorite thing about Oscar is that he is super mellow in the house and likes lots of cuddles. When we are in the couch at night, watching television or reading a book, he's always on somebody's lap...Oscar is super friendly with people and with our other dog. Our 2 dogs like hanging out together, following each other in the garden, taking naps together,... We are very happy to have Oscar, he's a great addition to our family!

Pez's New Home

 Do you remember Pez? 



This cutie was in foster for a couple weeks to recover from a kitty cold before becoming available for adoption. Here's what his new family says about him:
We absolutely love Pez! I can't begin to tell you what a difference he's made in my son's life- I've never seen him more happier! Pez is so fun and EXTREMELY playful- he entertains us for hours! He is very loving first thing in the morning and likes to snuggle in our beds at night and acts insane all day which we love about him! We adopted Pez the first day we came to ARF. I've never seen an adoption facility quite like yours... it's absolutely beautiful and comforting. You can tell the animals are all well cared for and loved. The entire staff is just so friendly and happy to be a part of it all!... I would definitely give the whole experience a ten... plus 5 stars!! Thank you so much!
