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 2 years old (as of June 2016), microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently in a foster home, adoption fee $110.
Poor Sid has a natural expression that makes him seem to be very unhappy. But he is really a sweet, affectionate guy who is rather shy. He has not always been treated well by humans, so it takes him a while to decide if a new person can be trusted. He came to ARF from a high-kill shelter in Southern Illinois and is looking for a forever home where he will have time to adjust and show just how loving he can be.
If you are interested in meeting Sid, 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.
