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!

"Suzie Q"
Born 10-26-2017

Suzie Q is a female 2-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix who is very sweet, but also a bit nervous here at the shelter. More important for potential adopters to know is that Susie Q is dog aggressive and must be the only dog in the household, as well as attention paid when other dogs are in the area, like on walks or outings. Susie Q's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, current vaccinations, her spay procedure, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.

This is Aspen, an 11-month-old spayed female German shepherd mix. Aspen knows basic commands like "Sit!" or "Paw!", but has always been an outside dog, and will do best in that setting. She loves to run, jump and play, and a tall fence is a must to keep this girl at home. Aspen gets along well with other dogs and loves people ... she's just an outdoor kind of gal! Aspen's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, current vaccinations, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
Born 6-14-2006

Don’t let Rambo’s name fool you – this sweet male Maltese mix is well past his muscle-man years, and at this point in his life, wants nothing more than to snuggle at your side or in a comfy bed. Rambo arrived at ARF when his person went into assisted living, but he hasn’t let these changes diminish his good spirits. While on leash, Rambo has a spring in his step that belies his age, and his tail is always wagging. Potential adopters interested in Rambo will be carefully screened, as we want him to go to a home well suited to his needs: lots of love, not too much activity including small children or other pets, and a willingness to pamper him in his golden years. Rambo’s adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, current vaccination, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative, to keep him heartworm free. Rambo is neutered.
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.
