Here are photos and information about the dogs and puppies available for adoption at A.R.F. They like our shelter, but would love a home and human companion of their own. All canine adoptions include spaying or neutering, as well as current vaccinations. Call us at 864-882-4488* or come by for your new BEST friend!
* Please note the phone will be answered as "FoxNest Veterinary." Staff members will be glad to assist you with questions about our adoptable pets as time permits, but a visit to the Shelter is always the best way to determine which pet is the perfect fit for you!

We may have dogs that have not been added yet, but we update the website frequently, so come back often!

Cats who need homes
"Major"
Born 3-23-2017
Major is a dog who offers the best of both worlds: his affectionate nature shows when he gets the chance to cuddle. He will sit in your lap and roll over for belly rubs. On the flip side, he's very adventurous. He loves to explore new places and things, but will always return to your side. He comes when called and walks well on a leash. Major is a fast learner, but is so interested in everything, sometimes you have to work to keep his attention. Major's adoption fee is $90, which includes lab work, current vaccination,  a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative. Major is neutered.
"Mendel"
Born 12-19-2017

Despite his young age, Mendel is a nice dog who walks well on a leash. We do know that Mendel will need a yard with a HIGH fence, as we've watched him jump the 5' fence in our dog exercise area. Why not stop by and see if Mendel's beautiful brindle coat and soulful eyes touch your heart like they do ours. Mendel's adoption fee is $90, which includes lab work, current vaccination,  a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative. Mendel is neutered.
"Jesse"
Born 12-29-2014

Jesse is a spayed female Labrador retriever mix who knows lots of commands, like "Lie down," "Paw," and "Sit." She is housebroken, too. Her one draw back is that she must be your one-and-only dog, as she tends be to dog aggressive, though she is fine with people. Jesse's adoption fee is $90, which includes lab work, current vaccination, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
“PNut”
Born 9-30-2004

When asked to describe this sweet boy’s temperament, PNut’s caregiver said, “Spunky!” A 13-year-old neutered Yorkshire Terrier, PNut arrived at ARF after his person became ill and could not care for him. In fact, PNut himself has a few health challenges that an adopter needs to be aware of: PNut has a very sensitive stomach, and needs to be fed only a special diet of Hills ID Canine … otherwise, he has unpleasant bouts of … bowel irritability, to put it nicely. Also, PNut requires a daily dose of medication to improve his cardiac and vascular health. No problems there, as PNut is always ready to eat, and eagerly eats the pill when placed in his food. In spite of his age and minor ailments, PNut is full of energy, has bright eyes and a wagging tail … and would be so happy to get back into a loving home. But beware of his charming wiles: he’ll beg for food even right after eating, and woe to you if you feed him table scraps! Now, that’s not too hard to live with, is it? Just keep him on his own diet and medication, and you and PNut will both be happy! PNut’s adoption fee is $90, which includes lab work, current vaccination, a six month’s supply of ProHeart heartworm preventative, and a microchip.

"Opie"
Born 3-23-2017

Opie is an incredibly affectionate dog. He has a very high energy level, and loves to play. Once he settles down, he will lay right on your lap, and can't seem to get close enough ... he's always ready to snuggle! Opie is working on his leash manners: he is still learning to leave space between himself and his handler. When introduced to a new environment he can be somewhat anxious, but he adjusts well with time. Opie's adoption fee is $90, which includes lab work, current vaccination,  a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative. Opie is neutered.
