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.
Gilda is a young 1 yr old (or slightly younger), 16-18 pound, soft coated, terrier
mix with a white blaze on middle of her chest. She is a very sweet, friendly girl! Gilda is a bit
tentative at first, but so responsive to any small bit of kindness that you might
show her. She gets along well with any dogs or cats. Gilda is mostly housebroken, with an occasional accident. Given her age and with proper training, she should be able to become fully housebroken. Gilda would be a great family dog--her preference being for children 6 or older that are on the quieter side - she will be easily frightened by loud screaming children. Do you have room in your home for sweet Gilda?
Gilda is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, and spayed. Her new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing. Gilda' s adoption fee is $300. A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting Gilda fill out an online application today! http://arf-il.org/application.html Once your application has been approved, an ARF volunteer will contact you to arrange a meeting.
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.
