Dogs Available for Adoption Now

Featured Dog: Potter!
No kids, no pets. He wants to be your solo curmudgeon prince. 🤣 He’s small. He’s old. His vision and hearing aren’t great. He’s a bit of a kleptomaniac. He’s unabashedly imperfect and non-apologetic about it. Spread the word about this dude. Maybe his forever human will stumble upon him. We can consider adopters in northeastern states. Possible breeds in his mix: Maltese, Poodle, Shih Tzu. Shaved down in the photos above. On intake he was the most matted dog we’ve ever had:

Adoption Application

Although our primary purpose is to transfer dogs out to partner rescues for eventual adoption, ARTBAR does occasionally work with adopters in these states:

PA (excluding Philadephia)
NY (excluding NYC)

Why do we not adopt to densely populated cities? Because our dogs come from such a rural area, we feel the noise and intensity of city life would just be too much for them. Thank you for understanding.

Our dogs are fully vetted and health certed prior to adoption.  Our adoption fee of $250 includes spay/neuter, 4DX test, fecal, rabies vaccine, distemper combo vaccine, wormer, and flea/tick preventative. There is an additional transport fee of $50 for adopters who live further than 100 miles from Lenore, WV.
