REQUIREMENTS: I am at least 21 years old. My pets are kept primarily indoors. They are social and need to be part of the family. I agree to return the animal to MARF if unable or unwilling to take care of the animal in the future. I agree not to get an animal to give as a pet. If you are getting a pet for a child, you must take responsibility for it. Children cannot take proper care of a pet alone. Puppies and kittens that have not been spayed or neutered can only be adopted locally unless special arrangements are made. (We cover the cost of spay/neuter at MARF local vets and all animals must be spayed/neutered). Many of our dogs have a history of getting out, therefore they require appropriate containment/fenced yard for outside.
