We welcome specific questions. Due to high volume of applications, we may not be able to respond immediately. Your patience is appreciated.
If an animal is on our website, it is still available but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, it is in your best interest to submit an application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process.
We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.
As an all-volunteer, foster home based organization, ARF does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals. The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we must give priority to pre-approved applicants.
Male, neutered, about 3 years old (as of September 2016), microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently in a foster home, the usual $110 adult cat adoption fee will be partially subsidized.
Because Tigee (aka Brando) is a very timid big boy, he will need someone who will let him settle in slowly. He gets along great with other cats and loves sitting in the cat tree watching squirrels and birds in the yard.
If you have a cat who needs a companion, Tigee would fit that bill. He will run and hide when strangers come into the house, but once you have earned his trust, this shy guy will sometimes ask for tummy rubs and petting and his loud purr will let assure you that he is thoroughly enjoying the attention.
Tigee has been in foster care for some time now because he is so timid, but he is such a sweet boy. He just needs someone who has the patience to let him adapt at his own rate. Are you that person? Would you like the challenge of earning Tigee’s trust and love? His happy purr will make it all worth the effort.
If you are interested in meeting Tigee (aka Brando), you can fill out an online adoption application at http://www.arf-il.org/application.html Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting with the cat. Filling out the application does not obligate you in any way.
If you’re invited to meet an animal, plan to arrive on time or early,
as we cannot hold animals.
All household members must be present at time of adoption, including dogs.
We appreciate your cooperation.
