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, spayed, about 1 to 2 years old (as of July 2017), microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently at the Darien Petsmart on 75th Street (http://stores.petsmart.com/Store/Details/422), special 'momcat' adoption fee $75.
This beautiful girl is 2017’s Mother of the Year! Not only did she raise her kittens, but she proceeded to raise two more motherless litters! Now finally kittenless, she needs to find out who she is beyond her identity as a mother. Miss Smartie Pants now needs to find her special human(s) and her forever home. She is currently living in a foster home with many other cats and dogs.
If you are interested in Smarty Pants, you can meet her at Petsmart, 2153 75th Street, Darien, IL 60561, (630) 271-1223 during store hours http://stores.petsmart.com/Store/Details/422
You can fill out an online adoption application at http://www.arf-il.org/application.html Filling out the application does not obligate you in any way. A completed application is required if you decide to adopt a cat.
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.
