Meet Rex

Rex is one of the cats participating in clear the shelter. His adoption fee is significantly reduced Part of ARF’s goal is to share with you the good and bad of the cats we have. It helps us best match you to the perfect cat. But, in full transparency, we now have a cat that we fear will never be adopted. Rex is a gray tabby cat who never properly learned social cues. He loves attention but lashes out without warning. He attacks feet and can draw blood even if he doesn’t mean to. He is not feral but truly just doesn’t understand how to ask for more attention. He needs someone who is willing to help guide him in the right direction with humans. It could take a long time to get him better with humans so he’s not the cat for someone who wants an easy going pet. But if you’re interested in giving Rex a chance or learning more about his story, please reach out today. Rex will call out to get attention because he does love people. He rubs up against his foster and weaves in and out of her legs looking up lovingly the whole time. He is extremely food motivated which can help with the learning curve. He lived happily with a woman for two years until he was put in a different location because she had to leave for some time. So we know he can be a good companion, he just needs someone to draw out his sweet side and the chaos in a foster home does not help him.

If you are interested in meeting Rex, you can fill out an online adoption application at Once your application has been approved, an A.R.F. volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting with Rex.

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!
