Steps to Adopt a Pet

4: After we gather and review all information, a decision is made, and an ARF-Aruba volunteer will respond with an answer.

5: The adoption counselors are here to answer any questions you may have about our pets and about adoption!

Wellness Visit

Before we transport kitties or puppies to the states for either adoption or foster care, we take them to a vet in Aruba for a check-up in order to receive a health certificate. They can fly when they’ve had at least 1 vaccination and are micro-chipped. The vet also de-worms them before leaving the island.  The health certificate is required by both the airlines and U.S. customs.
