Meet Tora

Tora is a kind soul, with a slow gait, and a loving eye. Tora came to ARF as a rescue out of Southern Illinois. Tora was abandoned by his owners and lived outside for a few years, finally being picked up by a wonderful animal control officer, and was quickly pulled into rescue for transport up to ARF. While we don’t know everything Tora braved in Southern Illinois, we know he must have some pretty great survival stories! 

Tora spends his days napping by the window, up in his cat tree, or sprawled out on the carpet in the hallway. He avoids beef, but will never turn down a can of wet chicken or puréed turkey. This boy doesn’t have a full mouth of teeth, so he enjoys softer foods. Some might even say he is a poultry aficionado. Tora prefers all the rubs and pets from his foster. Tora even rolls onto his back for a belly rub. Despite living outside for a few years, Tora never stopped longing for an indoor life, and he maintained all of his indoor kitty skills! Tora never misses his litter box, loves scratching his scratching his cardboard toy, and waits patiently while his food is prepared. Tora has a quiet meow, and will try to use his voice to tell you he’s excited to see you, or that he’s excited for food! 


Tora wants a home with an owner who will give him the indoor cat life he deserves after all those nights outside prior to rescue. He will be sure to be by your side, in a not so needy way, as he really just wants to be near someone! 


Tora is the most gentle, loving cat I have ever fostered. Please consider adopting sweet Tora and giving him the desired companionship that was once taken away from him.  


Tora is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, neutered , and litter box trained.

Tora's adoption fee is $135 .  If you are interested in meeting Tora, 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.

Tora is still available for adoption but might have other applicants. Learn more about our pet adoption process.

All pets adopted from A.R.F.-Animal Rescue Foundation include the following as part of their adoption fee:

  • Spay/neuter or a certificate for a low-cost spay/neuter when medically recommended
  • Microchip and registration, a permanent identification to reunite lost pets with their owners
  • Initial de-worming and flea and tick treatment
  • Age-appropriate testing for heartworm/FIV-FELV
  • Age-appropriate vaccines
  • Pre-adoption medical exam
  • A certificate for a free healthy pet exam at one of A.R.F.’s participating veterinarians within 7 days of adoption
  • Offer for a no-risk 30 day free trial with Trupanion pet medical insurance

If a cat or dog is on our website, it is still available for adoption 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!
