 Scheduled Adoption Events

To see all events, visit our EVENT CALENDAR Page.

To make the most out of your time, we suggest you SUBMIT an adoption APPLICATION BEFORE an adoption event.

Check the animal attendance the morning before the event to confirm attendance of a particular rescue. In addition, please check the up-to-date animals attendance list 1 HOUR BEFORE an event to know if the dog or cat you want to meet is still attending.

Also remember to review important event information BEFORE attending.


Not ready to adopt a dog or cat? Have no time to volunteer or foster?

You can still help: a donation is a great way to help ARWOB! Any amount - large or small - is appreciated.

Foster a Rescue

Fostering is
  FREE and FUN! 

We not only provide you with everything you need to take care of one of our rescues, but the experience is SO fulfilling. By placing one animal into a foster home, you allow us to save another. We are always in need of foster parents.

A beautiful update from our Facebook page:

"This is Cheddar (formerly Indigo), who was adopted as a kitten in August of 2013. I fell in love with him the moment I saw him and am eternally grateful to ARWOB for saving his life, as well as those of his mother and 5 siblings. Nothing makes Cheddar happier than receiving tummy rubs and he will plop himself spread eagle wherever he thinks someone will give him those rubs he adores!"


Look at this adorable photo we received of Paco (fka as Happy) all grown up!  Paco enjoys doggie daycare when his mom is at work and is as happy as can be.


Here is a spectacular update that we received about Chimi (fka Nixie):

"Just want to send a quick update on Nixie, now Chimi that we adopted from you in Sept 2018. She has been doing great! She is the fastest dog (beat out the whip pits at fetch) and super agile. She is very high energy, and loves swimming at the beach, doing agility, and has been learning flyball. Adventures and digging holes are her favorite. We were worried she was going to be too small based on her weight when we adopted her, but we think she was younger than estimated and is now 55 lbs (but still the most skinny). Thank you for rescuing our little one!"


We received this wonderful update for Maddie (fka Bessie):

"Maddie is still doing amazing and is the best girl we could have asked for.  She loves dogs and people -- we definitely were sure to get her socialized and in training.  Thanks again for everything."


We received this darling holiday photo of Tac from her adoptive family. The kids just love her and they are enjoying every minute with their pup!
