Meet Tempo

Hi, I’m TEMPO.  I am looking for a forever home (and human) after spending the first six years of my life on the streets.  My foster mom can tell you how wonderful I was in her home, how I’m perfect with my litterbox, polite with my food and learning the ropes of being a well loved member of a family. I can get anxious from time to time - did you know I never had a real home before? So things like the sound of a vacuum cleaner or fast movements around the house might surprise me, but I'm getting used to all of the changes.


I’m easygoing and affectionate. I even get to walk the store (wearing a leash and harness) and soak up all the attention from customers at the pet center. One of my favorite things to do is lay at the top of the cat tree and get plenty of petting. My ideal home would be somewhere calm and quiet with an adult or two to keep me company (I'll pass on kiddos and other pets, please). I’m super sweet, LOVE to snuggle and would be so happy to be your little (or big! I'm 15lbs) shadow -- all I need is a patient forever home and my very own human to love!

Tempo  is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, neutered, and litter box trained.

Tempo's adoption fee is $135.  If you are interested in meeting  Tempo,

please fill out our Online Application today!  

Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will be able to contact you to arrange a meeting.

Please see our other dogs or cats available for adoption.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.

We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.

A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals.  The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.

If you’re invited to meet an animal:

  • Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
  • All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.

Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
