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.
Together at last for one great performance! Brother and sister singing sensation, Billie Joe Armstrong and Lady Gaga, can sing and steal your heart! Together since birth at foster mom's home, they would like to move on to a bigger and better venue where they have top billing on the marquis and don't want to share the spotlight with any other cats--dogs (1-2) that are cat friendly are likely okay and kids are encouraged. When not performing together this dynamic duo likes to play with cat toys, nap in their tall cat furniture, get lots of attention from their managers (aka owners) and would adore a sun room or well-screened porch to hang out on and watch the birds and squirrels.
Now for the bothersome little details that they don't like to discuss. Born on 8/3/12 they are 4 years old, neutered and spayed, and up to date on all vaccinations. They want to keep their nails intact but trimmed thank you very much. Adoption fee is 130.00 for the pair. Cats also come with new cat carriers and new litter boxes courtesy of their foster mom.
Do you have the kind of home and heart to adopt this great purring pair? For questions, please contact their manager/foster mom, Mara, at 630/212-6834. Please call Mara as well if you have an ARF-approved application for foster mom's approval and are considering this fantastic pair; they can be seen by appointment at the Wheaton Petsmart or foster mom's home.
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.
