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!

You can practically see Poppy quivering in anticipation of a good head scratch or belly rub ... and do you see the big smile on his sweet face? Poppy, born around May 11, 2020, is a male beagle mix. He's full of energy, offering loads of wiggles, wags and kisses to one and all. Naturally, he needs to learn his good dog manners, but what puppy doesn't? Poppy's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, vaccines, 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.!!

Sweet Maggie, a 5-year-old spayed female border collie, is feeling a little lost and lonely, as her person sadly passed away. Maggie is housebroken, knows lots of tricks, and walks on leash with just a little bit of pulling. However, adopters must be aware that Maggie needs to be the only dog in the home, as she is dog aggressive, and has some food aggression if other dogs are present. Truly, she has never met a person she doesn't like! Maggie sure would love to be back in a home with people who will love her as much as she'll love them! Maggie's adoption fee is $90, which includes lab work, current vaccinations, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
Thanks! I've been adopted!!
