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.
Phillip, nicknamed Chip by his foster family, is a 1 year old neutered male Whippit mix who weighs in at 22 pounds. He is a playful little guy who would do best in a home as the only dog, but does ok with other dogs when introduced slowly. Phillip is friendly with all humans he meets, eagerly saying hi to whoever will pet him! He is very good with children of any age. He is excited to interact and play with them. He listens well, knows how to sit, give paw, and takes treats gently.
Phillip sleeps in a crate at night and wanders the house during the day, listening to classical music while his foster parents are at work. Phillip does well in a car and loves going along for rides!
At his foster home, Phillip entertains himself well with dog toys, (LOVES) chew toys or antlers. Phillip enjoys his daily routine of running with his foster family. He especially likes to chase squirrels! In between, he will be happy to nap on the couch or at your feet. Phillip is a happy boy with a lot of love to give!
Phillip is micro-chipped, up to date on all vaccinations, housebroken and neutered. His new family will be required to complete a basic obedience course of their choosing. Phillip's adoption fee is $200. He is a good boy and although he is loving his time at his foster home, he can't wait to find his forever family. A meeting will not be scheduled until you have an approved application, so if you're interested in adopting Phillip 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.
