First Saturdays and The Home Depot

Become an ARF Angel foster family.

Would you like to be an ARF Angel? We need people to volunteer to foster some of our young and adult dogs.  This means that you will take care of them as if they were your own and you will be able to attend our adoption days in order to find them a forever home. A refundable $65.00 down is required so the dog can be spayed/neutered. Once the dog is adopted you will be refunded or the deposit can be applied toward your next foster. This could be a short or long term situation. This is not something to take lightly. It is a big responsibility emotionally and financially. To make these animals more adoptable they need to be socialized and house trained. You will be required to complete an application, provide a valid driver license/ I.D. and have a fenced-in yard. If you are willing to become one of our ARF Angel foster families please let us know.  Our shelter is at double occupancy and we need help saving these precious lives. Call Barbara at the shelter to set up a time to speak with her and fill out your application. 256-245-2500

Discounted Adoption fee! Only $75.00
