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!

Sweet Marley is such a good boy! He's housebroken and knows some basic commands, and is always happy to go for a walk or snuggle at your side. Won't you give Marley the home he's waiting for? Marley's adoption fee is $90, which includes current vaccinations, 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.

We have the sweetest dog available for adoption! Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Tinkerbell, a female mix breed who is about 20 months old. Tinkerbell was confused to find herself here in the shelter after her human passed away. ARF staff report she has a very sweet and loving temperament, and is very smart. We know that once she's into a new loving home with someone who will work to help her adjust and learn, she'll make an absolutely wonderful companion. Tinkerbell's adoption fee of $90 includes lab work, current vaccine, her spay procedure, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.

Ziggy is a neutered male terrier mix who is almost two years old. He was returned after living for quite some time in a loving home, and is so sad here at the shelter. Won't you give this sweet boy a new lease on life? Ziggy's adoption fee of $90 includes current vaccinations, a microchip, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.

This energetic, tail-wagging fellow is Groot, a pittie mix who is so sweet! Though he still needs to learn all his good dog manners, including potty training, he's so good-natured, it will be a pleasure to work with him. Groot's adoption fee is $90, which includes lab work, age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip, his neuter procedure, and six months' worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative.
