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 BellE

Belle is a 2 year old Lab mix mamma.  She came to ARF very pregnant, and a day later, on Father's Day, gave birth to 7 puppies.  3 of the puppies were born naturally, and the next 4 required help from the veterinarian by C-section.  Belle is such a proud mom! She has taken wonderful care of her puppies and has given them a great start. They are 6 weeks old as of this post, and don’t really need her.

With all the time spent on her puppies, Belle's personality is still evolving. She’s not fond of getting into the car, but does fine once she’s in. She does short walks on a leash without any problem, but we haven’t done any long walks. We do know she loves affection! She may be okay with other dogs, but as a protective hormonal mom, it's been hard to tell for sure. Her current foster family does not have dogs of their own.  Recently, she has begun to whine to go visit the neighbor dog through the fence, and barks excitedly when she sees the neighbor dog. 

Belle is ready to find a family of her very own! She weighs about 30 pounds now, and is getting her shape back. Belle is happy and loves to get belly rubs, ear scratches, or any other kind of affection you’d like to show her.

Belle is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken and spayed.  Her new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  Belle's adoption fee is $250. A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting  Belle fill out an online application today! If you are interested in Belle, please complete our an online 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 Clementine

Clementine is female, spayed, about 2 years old (as of July 2017), micro-chipped, up to date on vaccinations.  She is currently in a foster home, will be making appearances at ARF Adoption Events.  Clementine has a  special “momcat” adoption fee of $75.  If you are interested, please complete our an online application today!

Meet Spice

Spice is a female Beagle mix. The vet estimates her age to be right around 2 years old, however, she is as playful as a puppy!! She is micro-chipped, up to date on her shots, and healthy. Her last vet visit, July 3,2017, she weighed 41 pounds. Spice has been in a loving ARF foster home for almost 2 months. She came to ARF with a week old puppy and has been an amazing mom, an amazing dog in general. She is not yet spayed, due to nursing. Spice came in very shy at first, and although she had a couple accidents initially, she has had none in the last 6 weeks.  Spice would thrive with a family that has another playful dog, a fenced yard (or the ability to offer her a good deal of exercise), and a human who is home more often than not. She does not act out when separated from her humans, but would much rather have them around. She loves to snuggle and wants to be close. If you'll let her, she will sleep with you all night!!! She is very active, playful,  and has a great deal of energy. It's not a destructive energy and she doesn't try to run away, but a large yard or frequent exercise would be best!!! She also loves other dogs!!! She is aware when other dogs do not want to play and does well with leaving them alone. But you can see the excitement when she finally finds a four-legged playmate!!! Spice is also good with children and females. She used to be very choosy about the male humans she would befriend. That has subsided some. She isn't aggressive towards them, just chooses not to go by them. If you are interested, come to an ARF event and meet her!!!   Spice is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken and spayed/neutered. His/Her new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  Spice's adoption fee is $250.

Meet Gabby

This beautiful little lady is rather shy. She definitely likes people, although she prefers her people to be the adult kind. She is new in her foster home, and her attitude may change as she becomes more comfortable, but for now it seems that she would like a home where she is the only pet.   Gabby is spayed, about 2 years old (as of May 2017), micro-chipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently in a foster home, will be making appearances at ARF Adoption Events. Gabby's adoption fee is $110.
