Meet LAdy

My name is Lady. According to vet estimates I am a 2.5 year old, female Beagle. I have not yet been fixed, but will be soon. I gave birth to a litter of pups at the end of January 2017 and they have all found their forever homes; now its my turn! I love to be outside!!! I would really enjoy a fenced yard or to be regularly taken to a dog park where I can run and play!!! I am good walking on a leash, but if I see or smell a bunny my instinct is to track. I think I may have been a hunting dog??? I won't chew on your stuff, that's not my thing!! I do need you to have a little patience with me.....I will go by the door an let you know I need to go out, most of the time. Now that my puppies have found forever homes, I am able to focus on this house training thing and am doing much better!  I think with a little more time, I will have it mastered!  I do not have any separation anxiety and I do not bark at everything I see. I'm not much of a snuggler, but I do love attention and having my neck and behind my ears rubbed. I am learning how to play with toys. I do well with new people, children, and other dogs. Lady 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 babasic obedience course of their choosing.  Lady' s adoption fee is $250.

Meet Pearl

Pearl is a female 6 year old black husky mix with occasional white hairs on her back and belly. She is house trained and is working on being crated at her foster home when left alone.  Pearl is a laid back love bug who would prefer to be the only pet in the house. She loves coming up to people and getting some lovin'. She likes being outdoors.  Pearl greatly enjoys walks but is obedient and loves to follow you wherever you go! Her tail is always wagging, even when she lays down and just craves affection. Although Pearl doesn't seem to have the greatest interest in toys it's always good to keep a few handy.  Pearl is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and housebroken.  Her new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing.  Pearl's adoption fee is $250.

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 spayed, about 1 to 2 years old (as of August 2016), microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently in a foster home.  Her adoption fee is $110.
