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 Vets used to believe that an FIV+ cat could only live alone or with other FIV+ cats, but that idea is now considered outdated.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 a spayed female, about 2 years old (as of January 2018), micro-chipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently in a foster home.  Simba's adoption fee is $110.  If you are interested in meeting Simba, lease complete our an Adoption Application today!
