If you are ready to adopt a dog or a cat, here are the ones currently available. All those available for adoption are currently in foster homes, so their foster parents can provide more information about the personality of each animal. If you are still not sure about which dog or cat to adopt, we will let you take the animal for a week as a “trial”; that way you can be sure that you are making the right decision.


Chance’s story is a sad one as his “owner” wanted to put him to sleep because they couldn’t feed him anymore. He is about 5-years old, medium size, fully vetted and neutered. Likes kids, adults, dogs, and cats. He was trained so he knows how to walk without a leash and does his business outside. Chance is low maintenance so it would be perfect for anyone who lives a very relaxing life, specially if you love the beach.





And we also have kittens. These are just adorable!



If you are interested in a puppy, just let us know! Sadly there are so many  dumped every day it is difficult to update this page accordingly.  Commitment of sterilizing a puppy is required.

Named after Frida Kahlo, this sweet dog was given away by his owners, shortly after she gave birth to eight puppies (puppies are safe in homes). Very shy and timid, she was scared of everything and everyone. Her foster mom decided that she needed a name that represented the strength that a woman can achieved, so that’s now she was named Frida. Frida is about one and a half years old. She gets along with dogs, cats, kids, and adults. She is slowly coming out of her shell and now wags her tail more often. She is housetrained and just learned how to walk on a leash.

Frida weighs only 23 pounds and she is very sweet.


Sophia is back in our program! She is a great dog but she is an alpha! Sophia has all her vaccines, she is spayed, and she is housetrained. She gets along with other dogs as long as they are betas. Great with kids and adults.


Because we know sometimes independent rescuers need help in getting their rescues adopted, we gladly showcase them in our page. If you are interested in any of the dogs/cats below, let us know and we will put you in contact with their rescuers.


We don’t know how old he is, but we are guessing he is about 2 years-old. Kevin is a very active dog who is living in a farm right now so he needs a lot of space. He gets along with other dogs and is great with people, but seems too interested in cats. Kevin has all his shots but it is not neutered (not yet!). Contact person: Tom Spontelli


Because ARF of Rincón is not a shelter, we continuously find ourselves helping dogs even if we do not have the space to give them shelter. If you want to help us by fostering a dog,  please let us know by sending us an email to Please make sure that you specify what type or dog you can foster (i.e. small or big, good with children, good with cats, low maintenance, etc.).
