Meet Harlow

Meet Harlow! She's eager for the love and attention of a kind family to call her own!

We call her a "pocket Lab" because she is only about 40 lbs at approximately 2 years old. Harlow was clearly recently a mama but did not arrive with any puppies. She's going to need positive training to learn basic commands and lots of daily exercise to help her contain her excitement. When it's time to settle down in the evening she loves nothing better than to snuggle up next to someone with her head in a lap and to close her peepers. She likes the company of other dogs but is not willing to share human attention and would do best as an only pet. She is friendly with children but children must be 8 years or older. Her soulful eyes will melt your heart.

Harlow needs a yard and will not be considered for apartment living.

Harlow  is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken and spayed. Her new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.

Harlow 's adoption fee is $400.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting Harlow fill out an Online Application today!

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

Harlow 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!
