Please contact ARF for more information about this pet.
We welcome specific questions. Due to high volume of applications, we may not be able to respond immediately. Your patience is appreciated.
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, it is in your best interest to submit an application immediately. Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but does get you a head start with the adoption approval process.
We do not schedule meetings until you have an approved application.
As an all-volunteer, foster home based organization, ARF 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 must give priority to pre-approved applicants.
Male, neutered, about 3 years old (as of October 2016), microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently in a foster home, adoption fee $200.
Benson was surrendered with his buddy Parker after their owners separated. They were surrendered with several dogs, so we believe Benson and Parker are comfortable living with other pets. It would be lovely if Benson could be adopted with Parker but it is not necessary.
Benson has gorgeous, soft black fur and stunning orange eyes and is front-paw declawed. He is friendly and sweet but traveling causes him stress so he will only come to adoption events for confirmed appointments with approved applicants.
If you are interested in meeting Benson, you can fill out an online adoption application at http://www.arf-il.org/application.html Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting with the cat. Filling out the application does not obligate you in any way.
If you’re invited to meet an animal, plan to arrive on time or early,
as we cannot hold animals.
All household members must be present at time of adoption, including dogs.
We appreciate your cooperation.
