This beautiful little girl is Lucy! Lucy was found living outside with her brother a month ago and a kind family rescued them and brought them to their home to get them healthy so that they could come to foster care with ARF.
Lucy has mild Cerebellar Hypoplasia. This happens when the part of the brain that controls motor function doesn’t develop properly – usually due to disease exposure of the mom while she is pregnant. Lucy has a very mild form. She can get around just fine and has no trouble eating, drinking or using her litter box. This is not a progressive disease, and in fact it may appear that she gets “better” as she gets older and gets stronger.
Lucy is a sweet girl who is very friendly, but she’s also a little shy. She will need a little time to acclimate in her new home to be brave. The ideal family for Lucy may have older children or no children, and other animals are fine as long as Lucy is given time to get used to them. Lucy needs no special medical care due to her condition.
Lucy is not yet spayed. Our vet has recommended that she be spayed closer to 6 months old after she has a chance to grow and develop a little more. ARF will cover the cost of this surgery when she is brought back to our vet for this procedure.
Lucy is microchipped and up to date on her vaccines. With your adoption you will receive a certificate for a free exam with one of our veterinary partners. Lucy has learned how to sit nicely for nail trims and does very well with scratching posts. Lucy may not be declawed.
You can check out facebook.com/Kittenville.il where her foster mom has documented her time in foster care. You can also see a video of her in foster care below: https://youtu.be/nU7cLSGm3BI
Lucy is a 3 month old female (as of 6/23/20) who is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and litter box trained.
Lucy's adoption fee is $150. If you are interested in meeting Lucy, please fill out our Online Application today!
Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will be able to contact you to arrange a meeting.

If an animal is on our website, it is still available but might have other applicants. If you find yourself interested in one of our animals, submit a no-commitment application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process. Due to a high volume of applications, we are often unable to respond to questions until your application has been approved in approximately 3-5 business days.
We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.
A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation does not have a facility where applicants can visit our animals. The majority of our dogs and cats are brought to adoption events by our volunteers. We invite everyone to come to our events, but we give priority to pre-approved applicants.
If you’re invited to meet an animal:
- Plan to arrive on time (or early), as we cannot hold animals for any reason.
- All human household members and dogs (if adopting another dog), must be present in order to be considered as a potential adopter.
Thank you for your interest and cooperation!
