Great place to adopt a dog with a wide variety of dogs. ARF has small dogs to big dogs. You will enjoy seeing all the different dogs. ARF is an all dog rescue the cats they do have are residential. The volunteers are knowledgeable abut the dogs and try to match the right dog with the right family.

They take good care of their dogs, but do not welcome male volunteers. There is no other way to interpret the leadership rejection of my skills. Other women volunteers would not speak to me. So I quit.

I adopted my Lab mix from ACT and I am very pleased. They truly care about their animals. Highly recommend.
Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
