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.
Meet Angel! A young female Australian cattle dog mix who is housetrained and crate trained. Angel is an extremely sweet young dog. She is great with children, playful and extremely smart. Angel does well with other dogs and doesn't mind a car ride. Weighing in at about 25 pounds, Angel is quite the catch. Her foster mom describes her as "this dog is the most affectionate sweet treasure of a dog!" She's not much of a barker but loves to be with you. Affectionate and also loving of affection, come and meet your newest family member!
Angel is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housetrained, and will be spayed. Her new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing. Angel' s adoption fee is $250. A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting Angel 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.
