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 Bayla

Bayla is a 2-3 year old 50 pound female Boxer mix.  She loves affection, belly rubs, car rides, and food!  Bayla was found extremely emaciated and dehydrated in December, weighing only 32 pounds with her entire skeleton evident.  Her face, neck, ears, legs, and back were covered with puncture wounds and torn skin. Through a wonderful network of rescue volunteers,  as far away as Michigan, took up her plight and Bayla found her way to us. Bayla's ideal home will have children who are over 13 years old and able to stand up to her over-sized puppy behaviors (which will subside when you attend the required positive-methods training classes with her).  Bayla is enjoying the good life now and is ready for her forever home!  Check out this additional video of Bayla.   Bayla is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housetrained and spayed. Her new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course.  Bayla' s adoption fee is $250.   A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting Bayla fill out an online application today!  Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.

Meet Diablo and Boomerang

Image may contain: 1 person , cat and indoorDiablo and Boomerang are new additions to the Darien PetSmart Adoption Center. Even though these guys just met, they have become best buddies. You know what that means? Somebody should adopt them both and keep them together. They'll have built in companionship when you're not home. Why have one great cat when you can have two, right?

If you are interested in meeting Diablo and Boomerang, stop the the Darien PetSmart  during store hours.

Meet webster

Webster is a 1.5 year old neutered Black Lab mix who weighs in at 45 pounds.  Webster is a friendly guy who likes people and other dogs.  He may not be good with cats, but can't say for sure.  Webster is a young dog with a high energy level, so a house with a fenced in yard would be ideal, and young, smaller humans may not like his big "puppy" energy.  He will benefit from further training for general manners and leash training. Webster is 90% housebroken and prefers to not be in a crate, but does ok in a room.  Webster is looking for a loving forever home who will help him grow into a great dog and a companion for life! Webster is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and neutered. His new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  Webster' s adoption fee is $250.

 A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting Webster, fill out an online application today!  Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.
