Once you answer any questions we may have regarding your application, we will let you know if you have been approved.


Meet the Pet

Once your application is approved, you can stop by our facility to meet cats/kittens or contact us to set up a meet/greet for our dogs!


Take the Pet Home

If you fall in love with one of our animals, they are typically ready to go home the same day! Just pay their fees and you're set!

Additional adoption info

Our adoption fees are typically $75-$125 for cats, and $125 for kittens. Dogs range from $150-$250 and puppies from $250-$350. Please check out our Facebook page to see additional photos and information. We often ask for sponsorship money for animals in our care and lower adoption fees often, so certain animals may have fees lower than those listed above.

All of our pets are fully vetted before they are adopted. Prior to adoption, animals are spayed/neutered, receive flea prevention, are dewormed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations. .

To meet adoptable cats/kittens head to Funding Forever Thrift at 1117 E Main St in Marion, IL Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-4pm.

All dogs are kept in foster care, so they are not at our location unless a meet and greet has been set up previously.

In order to meet our cats and set up meet/greets for dogs, please start by filling out an adoption application at

About Finding Forever Animal Rescue

Finding Forever Animal Rescue is a non profit foster based rescue that started in August of 2016. We are located in Marion, Illinois. Our mission is to help animals in need and place them in their forever homes.

Our goal is to help decrease the growing homeless pet population in Southern Illinois and help homeless pets find forever homes. We offer a low cost spay and neuter clinic every week. Please contact us if you would like more information.

While most of our cats are adoptable to inside only homes, we occasionally have semi-feral/feral cats that would make great barn cats. They would be fixed and have their rabies vaccinations. Please contact us for more info.

Finding Forever Animal Rescue's adopted pets

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Marion, IL.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
