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.
Female kitten, not spayed yet, about 11 weeks old (as of 11/21/16), microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently in a foster home, will be making appearances at ARF Adoption Events (see http://www.arf-il.org/events.html or https://www.facebook.com/A.R.F.Illinois for times and locations), adoption fee $125.
Meet gorgeous Autumn! This delightful girl came to us from a shelter in southern Illinois with Willow, although they are not related. Autumn can be a little shy at first but she loves to cuddle on your lap and get pets – she’ll purr away! She is being fostered with Brando, Willow, Rizzo and the Reindeer kittens and she would love to go home with a kitty friend. You can see more of them on facebook.com/kittenville.il where their foster mom has documented their time in foster care.
If you are interested in meeting Autumn, 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.
