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 one year old (as of ), microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, currently at the Darien Petsmart on 75th Street (, adoption fee $110.

Toby was caught as a stray and brought to Herrin County Animal Control. After he got over being scared, he would meet the shelter workers at the front of his cage looking for attention. As much as the workers liked him, the shelter was at maximum capacity and they were told they would have to start euthanizing for space. The head animal control officer reached out to ARF and pleaded for us to save her favorite boy. How could we refuse? Now we need to find Toby a forever home so we in turn can rescue more at risk cats and kittens.
When he came to his ARF foster mom's house he hid under the bed for two days, but was soon greeting her at the door and winding himself around her legs. All this handsome guy needs is for someone to give him a chance to get comfortable and trust them and they will be rewarded with purrs.
If you are interested in Toby, you can meet him at Petsmart, 2153 75th Street, Darien, IL 60561, (630) 271-1223 during store hours
You can fill out an online adoption application at Filling out the application does not obligate you in any way. A completed application is required if you decide to adopt a cat.

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.
