The KCAF has been serving the community since 1994. We are a community outreach organization and do not, at this time, maintain a shelter. Our pets are usually housed by foster homes. Our primary focus to eliminate abandoned and neglected pets is low-cost spay/neuter. We transport pets to clinics that will work with us to provide these services at prices that are accessible to low-income families. We maintain TNR programs for feral cats. We provide State of Illinois certified humane investigators to help stop abuse and neglect. Our rescue and adoption programs are based on rescuing pets that would otherwise continue in abusive situations or have been abandoned.
Come Meet our Pets:
Our adoption events are held at PetCo on the second Saturday of the month and PetSmart on the third Saturday of the month.
Our Adoption Process:
Our adoption is is $100.00 for most pets. Our process includes and adoption application, vet reference and home visit.
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.
