FoxNest Veterinary Hospital
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
"Spot"
Born 9-9-13

Meet Spot, a neutered male Treeing Walker Coonhound mix who is 3.5 years old. When Spot first arrived at ARF, he was the original "wild man," with little knowledge of good dog manners. However, he's come a long way. Adopters need to know, though, that Spot sometimes gets so excited to interact with people, that he grabs them by the arm or ankle, and lightly chomps down. He's not vicious ... just a fellow who needs a parent's loving hand to teach him this behavior is not acceptable. We hope you might be just the person who can accept Spot with this minor flaw. As you can see in his photo, he definitely understands "Sit!" Won't you give this handsome boy the home he's been waiting for so long? Spot's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, current vaccination, a microchip, and 6 months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
"Dawn"
Born 5-24-2015

This sweet-faced girl is Dawn, a 2-year-old female miniature Doberman mix. She is very friendly and loving, but definitely will need work on her good doggie manners, as she does not as yet have much training in basic commands. Given her sweet temperament, however, we know this will be a labor of love. Dawn's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, vaccinations, her spay procedure, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
"Nolan"
Born 6-23-2010

Nolan is a sweet little soul ... this Pomeranian mix has a quiet temperament, and seems to want to just sit at your side, relaxing. He is well behaved and knows basic commands, and just is an all-around great little dog. Nolan's adoption fee is $90, which includes lab work, current vaccination, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
“BOLT”
Born 8-23-2008
This little fellow is Bolt, a 9-year-old neutered male Chihuahua mix. Bolt sadly was surrendered to ARF when his loving mama could not take him along when she moved into assisted living. Bolt is a "special needs" pet who has to have daily injectible insulin for diabetes, as well as a special diet to keep his condition stable. However, Bolt is well worth the bit of extra TLC. He's loving, cuddly, and not aggressive in any way. He takes his meds with no problem ... he just wants your love, and he'll give you his. Bolt's adoption fee is $90, and includes lab work, current vaccination, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
"Major"
Born 3-23-2017
This silly boy is Major, a 5-month-old mix breed who might have a bit of shepherd in him. His coat is white and brindle. Major needs a bit of work on good doggie manners, but he's friendly and not aggressive, so we know when someone gives him a bit of time and attention, he's going to be a great dog. We're guessing he'll grow to be medium- to large size. Major's adoption fee is $90, which includes lab work, current vaccination, his neuter procedure, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
"Opie"
Born 3-23-2017

Our photographer seemed to capture Opie in a pensive moment ... this 5-month-old mix breed male is definitely on the shy side, but we know with a little extra TLC and some lessons in good dog manners, Opie is going to make someone an excellent companion. Opie will most likely grow to be medium to large size, judging by the size of his feet. His adoption fee is $90, which includes lab work, current vaccination, his neuter procedure, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
"Ariel"
Born 2-16-2014

Meet Ariel, a medium-sized female mix breed. Ariel has a sweet temperament, but has not yet had the benefit of being taught all her "good dog" manners, so she will need a bit of TLC from her new person. However, she will make an excellent companion, we're quite sure. Ariel's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, current vaccination, her spay procedure, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
"Gretta"
Born 8-18-14

Gretta is such a sweet, spayed female boxer mix. She was surrendered when a newborn joined the family, but NOT because she was aggressive. Gretta is so enthusiastic and outgoing, she was just a little too high energy around such a small bundle of joy. Gretta knows basic commands, and would love to join a family with older children, especially if she gets to go for long hikes with lots of outdoor time. Gretta's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, current vaccination, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.

"Lola"
Born 6-23-2009

Sweet Lola is a spayed female red and white Chihuahua. Aged about 8 years, she's had a bit of a hard life, so is quite anxious to get into a loving home where she can just relax and enjoy herself. Lola is a "special needs" dog who has to have special food to avoid stomach and intestinal upsets, and the side effects they can cause. Because of dental problems, many of Lola's teeth had to be extracted, so her tongue tends to poke out one side of her mouth, which actually makes her even more endearing. Lola's sponsored adoption fee is $50, which includes lab work, current vaccination, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
SPONSORED ADOPTION FEE  - $50!!
"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.
