Welcome to ARF!

Animal Rescue Foundation -IL is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3), no-kill humane society. Our family of volunteers is dedicated to rescuing, fostering, and caring for homeless dogs and cats while we find them their forever homes. We promote spay/neuter programs to help reduce pet overpopulation and work within communities throughout Illinois to assist and educate the public about responsible pet ownership. As a proud participant in the nationwide “No More Homeless Pets” initiative our goal is to help bring about a time when all pets are valued and protected by their entire community. 

MEET Millie

Millie was rescued from a high kill shelter in Southern Illinois. She was a good mom and all of her kittens have found good homes.  Millie came to us with ear trauma. Our vet could not tell what had happened. It could have been frostbite or something done to her on purpose.  Whatever it was she does not like having her head touched.  When she was spayed, the vet had to do an ear modification because her one ear was not healing... It just gives her more personality! Millie is a sweet, laid back cat.  She enjoys taking care of the foster kittens. She may be a little shy at first until she can trust you, but then she will want to sleep next to you and purr.

Millie is spayed, about 3 years old (as of July 2017), microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently in a foster home. She will be making appearances at various ARF Adoption Events. Millie's adoption fee is $110.  If you are interested, please complete our an Adoption Application today! Filling out an application does not obligate you in any way. Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

MEET marisa

Marisa is a 3-4 year old female Chihuahua mix who weighs in at 14 pounds.  Marisa came to ARF with many issues:  Lyme disease, Ehrlichia, upper respiratory infection, dental issues, eye infection, allergies, anxiety from past treatment and issues with her paws from being kept in a damp area.  She has been treated for all of these issues and has a clean bill of health!  She still has some issues with anxiety but those are lessening.  She would love her own forever home where there are no other dogs - she would like the humans and the dog food all to herself!  Marisa loves to be near her human. At her foster home, at night and when the humans are gone, she sleeps on her bed in a corral.  If she were the only dog, she would love to sleep with her human at night.  Marisa loves to go for walks when it is nice out and occasionally plays with toys.  She will dance for her treats - so cute!  She would do great with an older adult or couple.  Marisa is long overdue for her stress free, loving forever home...are you her forever human companion?  

Marisa is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and spayed. Her new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  Marisa ' s adoption fee is $250.  A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application. If you are interested, please complete our an Adoption Application today! Filling out an application does not obligate you in any way. Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.
