Meet Benny

Meet Benny, a 1 year old male Shepherd mix, weighing in around 35 pounds. He is a super friendly boy who wants to be right by your side! Benny loves to play with other dogs and chew on bones. He is very cuddly and tries to be a lap dog. He likes to snuggle with you and if you let him, he will cuddle up into your neck. He loves going on long walks and saying hi to everyone along the way. He looks to you for reassurance and guidance. He is very food motivated which will help with his training! Overall he’s looking to be someone’s best friend and give him the love he deserves!

Benny is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken and neutered as of 9/30.  His new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.

Benny's adoption fee is $375.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting $375 fill out an Online Application today!

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

Benny is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

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!
