Please know that AFH takes the Novel Coronavirus pandemic seriously. The safety of our volunteers and adopters is paramount while we continue to save lives. We are not holding in-person adoption events until further notice. Instead we are also doing virtual homechecks and virtual visits with adoptable dogs. Virtual visits and homechecks will be done via Zoom, Facetime, Skype, Google Hangouts, or other telepresence applications. All interviews with potential adopters will be done over the phone and contracts will be signed individually to allow social distancing. To adopt one of our pets, please send an email to and we will e-mail you the process for adopting.

Note that our adoption fee is $425 ($500 for applications received after April 30, 2022) which must be paid in either cash or certified funds. Also, please review the adoption contract and spay/neuter agreement for pups adopted under 6 months of age.

As you know, AFH is always in need of donations and foster parents, but the need is even more acute now during the coronavirus pandemic. We are seeing an increase in people who are giving up their dogs due to the crisis and we are experiencing extremely high demand from owner surrenders and over-capacity shelters pleading for help. Our ability to help is limited by foster homes and finances.
