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 Simba

Simba, although a girl, was named this probably because of her gorgeous long hair. Simba is a sweet young girl who greets her foster mom every time she comes in the room by circling her legs and meowing. She can be a little shy sometimes, like when too many people come in the room, but she is never aggressive. Although she is not yet comfortable with cuddling by being held, she adores being stroked and petted while on a bed or other surface near her human. She will require frequent brushing due to her long hair, so this could make for good bonding time for her forever human. The pictures cannot do justice to her coloring. She is a light grey with smatterings of cream coloring mixed in, which gives her a unique coloring pattern all her own. 

Simba has tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus). Vets used to believe that an FIV+ cat could only live alone or with other FIV+ cats, but that idea is now considered outdated. The virus is spread through deep bites – the kind from mean fights, not playful wrestling, and not from shared homes. So, unless one of the cats involved is aggressive, FiV+ and FIV- cats should have no problem living together.  You can read more about FIV here.

Simba is female, spayed, about 2 years old (as of January 2018), micro-chipped, up to date on vaccinations and currently resides in a foster home.  Simba'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. Simba will also be making appearances at ARF Adoption events.  Check out our Events page or Facebook page for times and locations.

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.
