It is our goal to find the best companion for your home and the best family for our pets. We want happy adopters and happy pets, so we utilize applications and home visits to help find the best matches. The purpose of a home visit is simply to help identify and prevent any possible issues (fence problems, where will the dog eat/sleep/play/eliminate) and be sure the introduction to the home will go smoothly for both adopter and pet. It also enables other family members to ask lots of questions and gives us a chance to meet your existing pets.

WHY ADOPT A PET FROM AFFT?
Our rescues are:
- current on vaccines
- current on heartworm and flea/tick prevention
- have 30 days free pet insurance
- enjoy a 20% discount on all Red Dingo tag orders
- your $200 adoption fee is a tax-deductible donation

Our commitment to our pets and their adopters is for life. If for any reason an adopter is unable to properly care for an AFFT pet at any time, the pet returns to the safety of our rescue.
