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 Marisa

 Marisa is a 12 pound female 3-4 year old Chihuahua mix.  She is very sweet but also very timid.  She loves going for walks and will follow you everywhere in the house!  She does ok with other dogs, as long as they leave her food alone!   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 $275.

A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application. If you are interested, please complete our an online application today!

Meet Sandy

Meet Little Sandy! She is an absolutely adorable two year old female Beagle Dachshund mix. Sandy's beautiful coloring makes her look more like a caramel latte!  Sandy is a wonderful mom who gave birth to a litter of six puppies. She's done her duty as a mom is now ready to enjoy the good life with a new family. Sandy is a little shy and getting used to her new surroundings but she is as sweet as pie.  She gets along well with dogs cats and kids. At this point she would probably prefer to be around children who are not younger than six or considerate younger children. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body but is a little timid from her big ordeal of being transported from a kill shelter to our rescue.  Sandy will be a great addition to any home and enjoys affection from her people once she warms up. Come meet Sandy and help give her the wonderful life she deserves.

Sandy is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and will be spayed prior to adoption. Her new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  Sandy's adoption fee is $275.
