Adoptable Pets

Meet the adoptable AARF dogs and cats!

At Atlanta Animal Rescue Friends, we have many lovable and furry friends waiting for their forever homes. Click through our gallery to learn more about them and their stories. For information on how to adopt and our adoption process, view the information below!
We are so glad you are interested in adopting a pet from AARF! Many of our pets have been waiting a long time for a forever home. Some have special physical or behavioral needs, so please read descriptions carefully and ask any questions that come up. We look forward to helping you find a good match!
 *Note: Visiting our pets is by appointment only. Please fill out the adoption application to schedule an appointment.*

All pets from AARF has been:

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Vaccinated
  • Microchipped
  • Examined by a vet
  • Treated for Parasites
  • Tested for FIV and FeLV

AARF’s adoption process requires three steps: 

1) A completed application – Click here to complete the adoption application
2) A Home visit
3) Signed adoption contract and adoption fee ($225 for dogs, $125 for cats)

Completing the application is only the first step in the process and does not guarantee that your application will be approved.

Please be patient once you complete an application. Most of our pets are not at our facility but are in foster homes. Our adoption coordinator will contact you within 24 hours to give you more information and set up meetings. The adoption process will usually take 3-7 days, depending on scheduling the meeting and home visit. We do not do adoptions on the same day that you complete the application.

Because our adoption process requires a home visit, we only do adoptions in the Atlanta metro area. If you have any questions before completing the application, email us at or call 678-534-3483. Thank you for your interest in adopting from us. Please fill out the adoption application and hit submit.


Do you want a pet now, but can’t make the 10-15 year commitment? Do you have the time and space to get a homeless pet ready for a new lease on life? Then become a foster parent today!

AARF’s biggest need is FOSTER PARENTS! We always have a list of pets waiting to come into the AARF program and the county shelters are always full. We are limited primarily by the number of foster homes we have. Fostering is a rewarding way to help homeless pets.
