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

risa 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! 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 Grace

This pretty lady found herself at a Southern Illinois Animal Control in June. Because she had been there the longest, as soon as they got too crowded she was slated for euthanasia. The animal control officer did not want to see that happen to such a sweet girl, so she called ARF and pleaded for them to save Grace.  How could we say no? She is a pretty girl, but right now she is shy and afraid of other cats. She is fine with people and children, but will need time and patience if you are going to introduce her to other cats. 

Grace is a female, spayed, about 1 to 2 years old (as of August 2016), micro-chipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently in a foster home, adoption fee $110.   If you are interested, 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 Darla

Darla, more commonly known now as Maggie, has found herself back on ARF's doorstep due to her family having a little human and also recently moving.  She is a 6-7 year old Boxer mix who was originally adopted from ARF in 2012 after being a momma and raising a litter of puppies.  She is housetrained and crate trained.  She likes to stay close to her humans and is super affectionate with people - she always wants to be petted or give kisses BUT She will not be adopted to a household that has cats. Someone who has a flexible schedule and is not gone for long hours would be a great fit for her.  Don't let her age fool you, she is still a pretty energetic girl and would prefer a fenced in yard to run around and play.  She would also prefer to be the only dog in the home so that she can keep all the toys and treats for herself! Hey, sometimes sharing is hard!  This sweet girl still has a lot of love to give - are you her new human?    Darla is micro-chipped, up to date, housebroken and spayed.  Darla's adoption fee is $200.
