Jennifer adopted Johnathan February 15th 2012. Johnathan is a very happy and rambunctious boy. He is always into something and is very lovable. We brought him home as a shy boy and today he is anything but. He is such a joy to have in our family.

Tracy adopted Penny August 10, 2012 Penny is now called Khloe! Khloe has fit into our family seamlessly. Our bullmastiff puppy, Percy, took to her right away and they have been BFF’s ever since. Our Bichon, who is 12, has learned to love her too. Even though the pictures seem as though they sleep all the time (they definately don’t) but getting a photo of the two rambunctious puppies when they are playing outside is almost impossible! Khloe is a love bug who gives lots and lots of kisses and is learning her basic commands easily. Our family is now complete thanks to A.A.R.F.
Kathy adopted Bob Saturday, 12/8/12 from ruff house rescue, NY after AARF saved and transported this dog up north. Bob is now called Dallas! Very quiet, just loves to be held, it’s a whole new world for this little guy. Thanks for saving him! My kids are thrilled to finally have a dog and Dallas finally has a family!
Ariel adopted Dusty almost a year ago around february 2011 Dusty is now called Rajah! Raj is doing so well here he is very playful and active. He loves to be in the middle of whatever Mommy is doing. Today I was wrapping christmas presents and he kept dropping his toys in the boxes. He earned his new name from his fascination with Aladdin and his complete refusal after a couple days to answer to anything but Rajah.
Angela adopted Thor August 2012 Thor is now called Thor! We love Thor!!! He has fit in with our family from day 1. He has learned to sit, stay, and the command come. He loves attention and he is getting spoiled. He has a nightly ritual of wanting me to carry him to his crate at bedtime. He puts his sweet head on my shoulder to cuddle ( I think that he thinks his is a small Yorkie lol). Everyone that meets him talks about how adorable he is and we hear “he looks like that dog from Fraiser” quite a bit. His favorite thing to play is ball, from day 1, we can throw a tennis ball and he will run to get it and bring it back to you. We are very thankful for him!!
Karen adopted Nick 12/16/2011. Nick is now called Rusty! Rusty is doing great – vet says he is in perfect health. He is happy, affectionate, well-behaved, and my best friend.
Bob adopted Red from one of AARF’s partner shelters in Illinois on 4/9/2013. Red is now DUKE! As a result of a transfer from AARF to a shelter partner in Illinois, we met and adopted “Red” a 4 year old Hound Mix. Renamed “Duke”, he instantly won over our hearts with his warm and gentle personality. We’d like to thank the folks AARF for the initial rescue, and the ultimate transfer to the shelter in our area.

Lauren adopted Abby & Cameron in August 2010. Abby and Cameron are now known as Abby and Gideon. Abby and Gideon are doing so well! They’ve made my little one bedroom apartment my home and continue to give me all the stories my friends can stand! They’ve grown so much! Especially Gideon. He’s very calm and very into yumz time. He makes me check his food bowl everytime I come home. As soon as I say something like, “You’ve got food” or “I see your food!” he’ll go back to napping. It’s so cute. Abby is a fireball. She’s energetic and generally all over the place! She’s the cat to blame when something falls because she’s always so curious. Sweet in her own way, Abby has her meaness in her, but she’s worth it (or so I tell myself when I’m bandaging a fresh scratch). All in all I’m very happy with my furry children and love that AARF brought us together.
Tiffany adopted Lilly11/3/2012 . Tiffany’s new name is now Blondie. My husband had been wanting another dog since we had lost our lil girl doxie 6 months before. I wasnt ready and I looked at other rescues and he would send me pictures of dogs daily. One day while at home I noticed Bolt just sitting there playing all alone. I figured it was time ….So I started checking out places and when I got to Lilly(Now Blondie) a lab doxi mix I stopped to read her story: Blondie was found abandoned on the side of the road, naked and hairless from mange and suffering from parasites and malnutrition. The person who found her thought she would never recover so they brought her to the vet to be put down. The vet was going to, but then Blondie looked up into her eyes and wagged her little tail. At that moment, the vet knew that Blondie was going to fight to recover. A kind foster home has took Blondie in after the vet got her mostly healthy. She has regained her hair and her life! Once I was done I called my husband and sent him the link to check her out. He fell in love with her. I emailed aarf to see if she was available and to set up a time to see Bolts reactions. Everything was great! She was nervous the first day. We took her to meet family and they loved her too… got a bit spoiled since they had a cookout. Lots of hand outs were given and her grandpa loves his new grandpuppy she has now been with us for several months and I dont see how we lived with out the lil stinker. She does great in the car and is rarely nervous.. unless she sees the vacuum. Thank you aarf for helping us find our forever bit of sunshine Blondie.
