My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Please contact AF for more information about this pet.

Thanks for your interest in a pet from A.R.F.! If you see a pet here, they are still available for adoption and you should apply through our adoption application on our website at  

My name is Harper. I was a wonderful Mom to 6 adorable kids and am now looking for a home of my own. I am very sweet but a little bit shy so I would do best in a quieter home with no young children. I get along well with the resident cats in my foster home but have never been exposed to dogs. My coat is not only super soft but it has the brightest orange coloring my foster parents have seen. I also have the most beautiful golden eyes. Once I get comfortable in my new home I will follow you around the house and purr as soon as you start petting me.

Harper is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, and litter box trained.

Harper's adoption fee is $135. If you are interested in meeting Harper, please fill out our Online Application today!

Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.


Thank you for considering a rescue pet from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation! We are  based in Wheaton, IL and conduct adoption events in the DuPage County area. If you are interested in adopting one of our pets, please submit an adoption application at 

Adoption appointments are scheduled based on the order of applications received, so submit your application early! Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions or schedule meetings until your application has been approved. More information about our adoption process can be found on our website here:

As an all-volunteer, foster home-based organization, A.R.F. Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals. Please visit for a list of our upcoming adoption events. 

Thank you for choosing to adopt, not shop!
