It is not a first come- first serve basis. Each pet has it's own personality and needs and ARC is working to put it in the best environment for it.
  • Applicants will meet pet they are interested in adopting.
  • After applicant is approved, arrangement for adoption will be made. This includes signing the ARC contract.

Interested in Fostering? We need you!

Taking care of animals while they are waiting for their new homes is a very rewarding experience.

Here are some things to consider:

1. Is everyone in my house ready to welcome another or new pet into the home?

2. Do I know if I or anyone living in the house has allergies to animals?

3. Does my current pet(s) get along with other animals?

4. Am I prepared to work with the new pet on any issues that it may have to prepare it for adoption?

5. Am I prepared emotionally for when the animal is adopted?

6. Am I willing to foster the animal for as long as it is available for adoption?
