Meet Barney

This is Barney!

Barney is ready to be your best friend. This little guy is everything you’d want in a kitten – he loves to snuggle and give kisses, but he also will play like crazy! Barney (or Barnum or Barnabee or Barnacle or any other variation that his foster mom coos at him) will purr the moment you scoop him up. He likes to say hello and let you know if he wants some more of your loving, and he will rub up on your face to give you a kitty hug.

Barney is an expert at catching the feather from a wand toy! Even when his foster mom tries hard to keep it away, Barney will launch himself up, grab the feather, and then smugly walk away with it – pulling the whole wand out of his foster mom’s hand! Barney is always ready to play and is creative in finding toys. One time, Barney found a zip tie to play with…the little weirdo pushed it around and went crazy having fun with it, then proudly carried it around to entice his siblings to play with it too!

Barney is wonderful with children. He has met a toddler and was very patient in letting her pick him up any which way she wanted to. He was just happy getting attention! Barney is also very brave and curious. As long as proper introductions are made, Barney will fit in with any family.

Barney has a whole lot of love to give, so he is looking for a home with another young, playful kitty, or a family who is truly ready to give him a ridiculous amount of love and attention.

Barney is a 14 week old male (as of 9/10/20) who is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, neutered, and litter box trained.

Barney's adoption fee is $150.  If you are interested in meeting Barney, 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.

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

If an animal is on our website, it is still available 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!
