A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3), no-kill humane society based in the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Our family of volunteers is dedicated to rescuing, fostering, and caring for homeless dogs and orphan 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.
We conduct cat and dog adoption events primarily in DuPage County, IL including Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Downers Grove, Darien, Lombard, and Naperville.
