ARF’s Top Ten
If you are thinking about adding a pet to your family, please consider one of these worthy animals below. For one reason or another, these cats and dogs have been overlooked at the adoption center and we are hoping to bring some attention their way. All are deserving of a loving home.
For more information on any of these animals, please contact email@example.com or call 631.537.0400 x203.
Jada came to ARF when her owner could no longer care for her. She is quiet dog who is very friendly with all people, no matter their age. She is housebroken and gets along well with dogs her size, but a home with small dogs or cats is not recommended. She would love to join another family as soon as possible. (Photo by Dee McMeekan)
This spunky little girl was abandoned in a carrier outside of ARF in the middle of the night. Cora gets along well with dogs and other cats and enjoys a good head scratch. She spends her days socializing the shy dogs in our Shelter Directors office but would love a home of her own. (Photo by Durell Godfrey) See a video of Cora.
Zeke is a five-year-old Lab Mix who was an owner surrender. He walks very well on a leash, is crate and house trained and knows basic commands. While Zeke is dog friendly, he has been known to guard, so he needs to be the only pet in the home. He loves his people and does not do well with a lot of activity and strangers coming and going. Zeke would do best in a quiet, adult only home. (Photo by William Yennie) See a video of Zeke.
Sammy is a handsome and regal gentleman ready for a home of his own. A sunny window and a comfy spot to hang out in are all this nine-year-old guy requires. (Photo by William Yennie)
Teo is a young Lab mix who is working hard to overcome his shyness. With the help of our volunteers on weekly walks through town he has begun to break out of his shell. Teo gets along with other dogs and cats, but young children tend to frighten him. A loving home with another dog would be ideal for this playful sweet boy. See a video of Teo.
Pom Pom was surrendered by her owner, after he fell sick and he couldn’t take care of her any longer. Pom Pom is a very sweet, quiet, beautiful senior lady that would love to sit in the sun or on someone’s lap and eat bon-bons all day, but she can’t since she is diabetic. She does require insulin injections twice a day and a special diet to keep her blood sugar regulated; this illness hasn’t dampened her spirits, she is full of life and has much love to share. Won’t you please open your home to this beautiful lady! See a video of Pom Pom.
Petunia is a young-at-heart-senior Hound mix who was surrendered when her owners could no longer care for her. She loves to give kisses, take long walks and is always up for a good road trip. Help this loving golden girl get back in a home with a loving family of her own. (Photo by Dee McMeekan)
Misty is a sweet girl who can be a bit shy at first with new people. She is social and with other cats, and playful too. A quiet home would be best for this beautiful tuxedo cat and once she acclimates, she will be a wonderful companion.
Papito is a Chihuahua mix who was sadly born without eyes due to a congenital abnormality. This happy dog is all about the love: the love of people, toys and other dogs. We are seeking a quiet, adult-only home for this very special young man. (Photo by Francine Fleischer)
Jaylee and her sibling Irving (ADOPTED) came to ARF as shy kittens through the Operation Cat program. ARF staff and volunteers worked hard socializing them, and now they are friendly and playful. These gorgeous tuxedo cats would love nothing more than a home together. Pet them and give them tuna treats and they will love you forever.
LOOK WHO’S BEEN ADOPTED AFTER BEING FEATURED ON OUR TOP TEN
This handsome man with the striking black tail was left at the shelter as a kitten over two years ago. Caillou is a sweetheart, who enjoys the company of other cats and likes dogs! All he wants is a place to bird watch and sunbathe. Is that too much to ask?
Windsor is a very special dog and a staff favorite. He was adopted as a puppy and recently came back to ARF when his owner passed away. Upon examination, our vet determined his right front paw had a cancerous growth, and his limb had to be amputated. He has recovered beautifully, and he’s ready for the home he deserves! He can walk up a few stairs and runs and plays. He loves people of all ages, gets along with other dogs and with cats. He loves his treats, his bed, and going for walks. He is truly a wonderful dog searching for a wonderful home. Windsor is twelve years old. (Photo by William Yennie)
If you are looking for a cat with swagger, good looks, and a penchant for the ladies, look no further than Nitro. He’s an active boy who gets along with other kitties but may be too much for small children. (Photo by Sole Riley)
Palmer is an eight-year-old Lab mix who still plays like a young pup, but he’s a gentleman – unlike most puppies. He’s truly a good boy, who is completely housebroken and walks well on a leash. He likes other dogs, loves treats, but does not care for cats. Palmer hopes for a loving home with a family who will give him the life he so deserves. (Photo by William Yennie)
Looking for a beautiful young Hound to call your own? This girl has it all! She likes all other dogs, has no problem with cats, and likes children, but because of her size, older children are recommended. She is social and sweet, walks well on a leash, and is housebroken. Like all Hounds, she does follow her nose, so leash walking or a fully fenced yard are a must for this lovely girl. (Photo by Dee McMeekan)
Fiona, 4-years-old – ADOPTED!
Beautiful Fiona is a Australian Shepherd who spent her whole life as a breeding mom in a puppy mill. She is a bit shy on first meeting but once she warms up, she’ll wiggle her tail to let you know how happy she is to meet you. She likes other dogs and seems to have has no interest in cats. Due to her shyness, we are recommending a quiet home with someone to love her for the very first time is what this incredible girl deserves. For the right family, ARF will waive her adoption fee, thanks to the generosity of the Kit Kat Fund. (Photo by Will Yennie) See Fiona out on a walk and more.
Scooter, 1.5-years-old – ADOPTED!
Scooter is an incredibly affectionate one-and-a-half-year-old Lab/Shepherd mix who loves to play. He enjoys the company of other dogs and is fine with cats. He knows basic commands, and he’s eager to please. An experienced dog owner with another dog would be ideal for this lovable boy. (Photo by Dee McMeekan)
Irving, along with his sister Jaylee came to ARF as shy kittens through the Operation Cat program. ARF staff and volunteers worked hard socializing them, and now they are friendly and playful. These gorgeous tuxedo cats would love nothing more than a home together. Pet them and give them tuna treats and they will love you forever.
