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!

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.
“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.
"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.
SPONSORED ADOPTION FEE AVAILABLE
TO QUALIFIED ADOPTER!!
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.
WELCOME
“MELODY”
Age: About 7 years
(Birth date unknown)

A pretty girl is our sweet Melody … isn’t there a song like that? Well, Melody IS sweet. This approximately 7-year-old female mix breed has such a lovely temperament: she’s friendly and outgoing and eager to meet new people. She recently underwent treatment for heartworms, and will soon be spayed. After that, she will be ready to join her new loving family and shower them with her charm. Melody’s adoption fee of $150 reflects her heartworm treatment, and also includes lab work, current vaccinations, her spay procedure, six months’ worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative (to keep her heartworm free), and a microchip.

“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.
