A.R.F. - Animal Rescue Foundation is a no-kill animal rescue organization in northern Illinois that is dedicated to finding homes for pets that have been abandoned, abused, or with high medical needs. Cats and dogs are rescued from high-kill shelters and placed in temporary foster homes until they can be adopted. Our fosters take the extra time needed to ensure that every animal we adopt out is healthy and a perfect addition to their forever family. A.R.F. is an all-volunteer organization, and our generous volunteers make the difference in hundreds of pets' lives every year.
