ARF-Aruba Adoptable Pets
Steps to Adopt a Pet
1: Complete the adoption application below.
2: A member of ARF-Aruba will contact you to let you know that the following will take place:
- vet reference will be called
- personal reference will be emailed
- a virtual home visit will be requested
3: After references are checked, we will call you to request a virtual home visit. You will be provided with guidelines of what we want to see. You can then take a video using your phone and upload it in a text message or email it to us.
4: After all information is gathered and reviewed, 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!
Before kitties or puppies are transported to the states for either adoption or foster care, they are taken 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.

We take the lives of these precious animals very personally so all fields are required.
