Who We Are ARFhouse is a sanctuary for abandoned and abused dogs; we are their advocates, and if space is available, we accept any dog who doesn't have a home. At any time, we house and care for 350 dogs, which is what space allows. We spay or neuter all the dogs who arrive, and provide them with medical attention they need. The next step is re-homing the dogs, which takes time and effort. Many dogs will stay at ARFhouse for life, but we want those who can find love and care in a home environment to have the best chance to do so.
The ARFhouse Adoption Program allows some of the ARFhouse animals to be available for adoption to suitable owners. Since those animals which are not adopted will stay at ARFhouse for life, ARFhouse works hard at insuring that a prospective owner has the level of commitment necessary to properly care for a dog.
Paul & Paula's (to the left) is one of our adoptable dogs awaiting their new home. Visit our Available Dogs Page to meet all of his friends.
The Be-A-Pal Program lets you sponsor the dog of your choice at ARFhouse. The dogs in our "Be-A-Pal" program are a combination of dogs that may not be suitable for a family environment, have special health needs that require frequent attention, or are residents of our Senior Sanctuary. For $20 a month we will send you periodic photos of the dog you choose to sponsor. Through your support and ARFhouse's caring volunteers, these dogs are given a second chance at a good life.

Christmas is coming early for the dogs! Merrick Pet Care Products in Hereford has offered us 4 pallets of their great canned product. Their dog food is of the highest quality. They've donated in the past, and it's always cause for celebration here at ARFhouse.
MANY THANKSto LeAnn Parker for manning a table at the 2014 Big Dog Car Show, sponsored by Grayson Bible Baptist Church in Sherman, Texas.
This event raised $4,300 for the dogs.
"Juliette", "Tango" and "Bravo" were found in a cardboard box at the side of the road. They were emaciated and starving with plenty of parasites. In only 2 weeks of care, they had put on weight and they were ready for their forever homes, which all three found the weekend of December 6th.
