Our Adoption Process

Due to the holidays, AAR will be closed for adoptions on the following days:

November 23rd – 24th

December 26th

January 2nd

Bring joy to your life by sharing it with a pet! When you adopt a shelter animal, you save two lives– the life of the cat or dog you adopt, and the life of the one who takes its place.

Are You Ready to Adopt a Cat or Dog?

Caring for a companion animal goes far beyond providing food, water and shelter. It also takes planning for expected and unexpected medical expenses. The average first year cost of owning a cat or dog is over $1,000 and $500 each year after. When adopting, you are making a commitment to care for an animal for the rest of its life—that could mean 10 to 15 years for dogs and up to 20 years for cats. Before adopting, consider the ways your life and circumstances could change such as moves, the birth of children, and new jobs. Are you prepared for your pet to remain a permanent part of your life?

We cry till our foster mom rescues us. . We will follow our foster mom when she gets us our . When we get tired we curl up on our foster mom's lap, usually stretched out and unless she moves we stay for a long time. We will make great family pets. We have already seen our first Christmas tree and we loved it. At first we slept under it, then we decided to play with all the ornaments.

Jasper was found in an emaciated unhealthy state and after several months of foster care and medical care, he is a healthy robust boy. He is sweet, gentle, and loves a good belly rub. He prefers to be an indoor couch potato. He shared his foster home with 3 other dogs ranging in size from 18 to 45 lbs, a cat, and a parakeet. He did get excited if the cat ran so they were kept somewhat separate. He prefers not to be kenneled but it is important not to have any socks, towels and other soft items left out that he can chew and swallow. His foster recommends that other dogs in the adopter's home should be older mellow dogs. They should be given ample time to become accustomed to each other before leaving them to play on their own. If you have a big heart and a big couch, Jasper may be the dog for you! Est. DOB: 2012 80 lbs.

My name is Jax. My mom was a stray who met a nice guy and a little later had my 3 brothers and I. I was the first of my brothers to be adopted when I was only 2 months old and my mom was adopted shortly after that. However, my home didn't work out and I was brought back. I am a sweet boy who just plays a little ruff. I am now a huge and strong boy who needs a special person who understands that I kind of still think I'm a kitten and play as such. Could you be the right person to help me play more gently and release that I weigh 10 lbs instead of 2 lbs.
