A Reason To Believe Animal Rescue, Inc. is located in Lenore WV
(see blue star on logo above).

Click to view dogs that are currently available for direct adoption or on stray hold for reclaim. Stray hold dates are noted in the listing.

Although our primary purpose is to transfer dogs out to partner rescues for eventual adoption, ARTBAR does occasionally work with adopters in these states: Southern or eastern PA, NJ north of I-78, MD, and CT.

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.
