Meet Speck

Not only does this girl have some of the softest, poofiest fur around, but she's snuggly and playful, too. Not only does she have the cutest ear floof, but she has some toe floof too! Her fur pattern is absolutely stunning.  Her pictures hardly do her justice.  She loves any toy she can get her paws on, especially strings and springs. She loves chasing her brothers and sisters around their room for hours.  Speck is a little on the shy side, probably from starting her life on the mean streets, so she would really love a family that can give her the time and attention that she needs to feel safe in her new home.

After a long day of zoomies, Speck loves nothing more than to curl up in a nice warm cuddle puddle with her buddies, or better yet, a nice cozy lap. She can't wait to curl up in yours! She and her siblings all LOVE belly rubs and will roll over onto their backs, practically begging you to pet them.

Speck came to her foster home with her four siblings. Since she has only known a life with furry friends, she would really do best in a home with another kitty, preferably one of her siblings. She hasn't had any exposure to dogs, but most kittens can adjust to them fairly quickly. She does well with kids of all ages and would make a great addition to any family.

We encourage you to consider adopting kittens in pairs! There are several reasons why Speck would do good with a friend, including:

- Two kittens keep each other entertained - they will play and get all their energy out on each other in time for snuggles with you!

- Having two kittens to play with each other prevents potential "I'm lonely and bored" behavioral issues.

- Watching two kittens wrestle is quite possibly the cutest thing you will ever see.

- The kittens will teach each other "how to cat" and learn to be more social with humans and people.

- You'll save two lives instead of one!

Speck is microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, and litter box trained.

Speck's adoption fee is $165. If you are interested in meeting Speck, please fill out our online kitten adoption application at https://www.arf-il.org/adopt/application/ today!

Once your application has been approved, an A.R.F. volunteer will be able to contact you to arrange a meeting.

Speck 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!
