Many variants of DBF recovery software exists:

http://www.dbf2002.com/dbf-recovery/
http://www.stellarinfo.com/database-recovery/dbf-recovery/dbf-recovery.php
http://sysinfotools-dbf-recovery.en.softonic.com/
http://www.oemailrecovery.com/dbf_recovery.html
http://dbfdoctor.com/
http://www.abri.net/recover/recover.php
etc.

You may try a free trial version in many cases and then to decide what to buy.

Remember not all corruptions are recoverable and some data loss is possible. You may also try to fix the corruption yourself - the obvious steps are to change the DBF file length based on known number of data records. You should make a backup copy first!
