About Our Rescue Group:

ANIMAL RESCUE FOUNDATION is a non-profit humane society established 1985. We are volunteers dedicated to finding loving homes to the homeless, abandoned, and abused animals of our community. Animals waiting for adoption are housed in foster homes. We are licensed by the state of Illinois, we receive no government funding. Private and corporate donations, as well as adoption fees, keep ARF prepared to help animals in need. As of July 1999, ARF is now a 501c3 non-profit organization in the United States.

Our Adoption Process:

If you are interested in adopting one of our pet you should complete an online application at www.arf-il.org. This does not commit you to adopting, but does allow the process to begin. You're welcome to send an inquiry, but fortunately our animals move quickly so the animal may be adopted by the time you inquire.

You will be screened to ensure that:

You understand the life long responsibility of adopting and caring for a pet.

All household members consent to the decision to adopt.

Adopting a pet will not result in a violation of your lease. If you live in an apartment, we do ask that you provide us with a copy of the lease or obtain a letter of approval from your landlord.

You are 18 years or older to adopt a pet from us.

The temperament of the animal you are interested in is conducive to your lifestyle and home environment.

Agree to our adoption fees*:
Dogs: $200
Kittens: 6 months and younger $125.00
Cats: Older than 6 months $110.00

*Unless otherwise noted in pet listing or adoption contract.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
