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!

Tinkerbell, recently adopted, unfortunately came back to ARF ... not to worry, this does happen on occasion through no one's fault. Let's introduce y'all again to TInkerbell! This medium-sized spayed female mix breed is a diamond in the rough. She knows some good dog manners, but needs a patient, loving hand as she learns the finer points. Because of her young age, she needs a safe area to run and play; her high energy also means she'd do best in a home without other pets or children. Tinkerbell tends to hang back around strangers and would thrive best in a home with a single person to share her love and devotion. TInkerbell's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, current vaccination, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.

How can you resist those soulful eyes? This sweet face belongs to Max, a male mix breed. Max has an outgoing attitude and lots of young-dog energy, but tends to be a bit shy when meeting new people. He also will need time to brush up on his good dog manners, since he's so young. Max's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, current vaccination, his neuter procedure, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
Looking for a photo you saw that is no longer posted? When animals are adopted, we try to mark their photos with an "I've been adopted!" banner, but if space is needed on the website page, we may simply replace the photo of an adopted animal with a new adoptable pet.
Thank you for supporting A.R.F.!!

Boosie is a neutered Staffordshire Bull Terrier, whose energy belies the fact that he's 11 years old! He greets people who approach his cage with a wagging tail, and lets them know he's happy to see them with his eager barks. Boosie needs to be the only pet in the family, as he does not like dogs or cats. Also, a child-free home would be best for this older dog.  Boosie's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, current vaccination, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
Thanks! I've been adopted!!
