Animal Rescue Foundation – IL (ARF) is a NO-kill, non-profit animal rescue organization established in 1985. We are an all volunteer based group dedicated to finding loving homes for the abandoned, and abused animals of our community. ARF receives NO government funding. Private donations, as well as adoption fees, keep ARF prepared to help animals in need. We are an entirely volunteered based organization and no money is used for administrative salaries.

-We always need help handling animals at our adoption events. These are typically a 3 hour commitment on a Saturday and held in the Glen Ellyn / Wheaton area. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
-Provide Temporary Care for our animals by opening up your home. Since we have no facility, all of our animals are cared for in homes. You can provide foster care for cats, kittens, puppies or dogs. ARF provides all the supplies, all you need to provide is the TLC the animal needs until they find their forever home.
-Many of our animals are rescued from area kill-shelters so in many cases we must make arrangements to meet the animals at certain drop-off points and then transport them to our veterinarian in Wheaton. It’s a very rewarding feeling knowing you are taking the animal to the place where it will find a loving home. Our animals also need assistance going to the veterinary appointments. You can assist by volunteering to pick them up at our PetSmart location or at a temporary care home and transporting them to our veterinarian in Wheaton. These are daytime transportations, typically between the hours of 12 pm and 5 pm.
