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.
Snickers is an approximately 5 year old Chocolate Lab who weighs in at 65 pounds. She is super sweet and loves to play! Snickers came to ARF in rough shape, as you can see from the video of her enjoying her first rawhide. She is also heartworm positive. She is scheduled to undergo treatment for this at the end of October. Once completed, she will need to spend 4 weeks taking it easy, keeping her heart rate down. After that, she will be healthy and ready to play, run and enjoy her great new life. Snickers will be ready to move to her forever home any time after the treatment is completed at the end of October. Do you have room in your home and heart for this sweet girl?
Snickers is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken and spayed. Her new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing. Snicker' s adoption fee is $300. A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting Snickers fill out an online application today! http://arf-il.org/application.html Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.
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.
