Next Step Adoption Center Closure

Next Step Adoption Center Closure

As ARFP embarks on this unknown journey into the world around us, we have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily keep our adoption center closed to the public. We did not come to this decision lightly. We love our community and we love your regular visits to our center. This was a crucial decision for us to join the community in shutting down, and we will come to you looking for support more now than ever. During this time we ask that you share any post we make and that you help promote our animals and the organization. Your support is critical and is very much appreciated.

During this temporary closure, intake will not stop and our volunteers will continue to work diligently to keep the organization running smoothly. We will keep you up to date with pictures of our available animals. The adoption team will screen applications via the phone and we will connect puppies and kittens to potential homes at the safest time possible.

Volunteers will check our donation bins daily with hopes that you continue to keep our pantry stocked with dog and cat food. Online monetary donations can be made via our website ( ).

Thank you for supporting ARFP for the last 28 years – we know you will have our back during this roller coaster ride we are all on. Stay safe. Stay healthy. And we will see you soon

    So, you will not be adopting out any animals until? And potential adopters will not be able to meet any adoptive pets? I absolutely understand the reasons for this but it does seem to me that adoptive animals at your facility may grow over the facilities capacity and what will become of homeless pets?

      All of our dogs and most of out cats stay in foster homes, so they’re not at the center.

      We are still adopting out animals. People interested in meeting an animal should call 336-574-9600 and leave a message on the adoptions line. A volunteer will return the calls in the order they’re received.

      After that arrangements can be made between the potential adopter and the foster parent to go to the adoption center to meet the animal.

      Hi. We’ve received a lot of applications recently. Our volunteers are going through them as quickly as they can.
