ARFhouse Chicago (Animal Refuge Foundation) is a no-kill animal shelter located in Chicago. Founded in 2006, a group of individuals with experience in the animal rescue industry and the desire to help Chicago lower its euthanasia rate and homeless pet population formed ARFhouse Chicago. We are a 100% volunteer run organization. ARFhouse Chicago will place dogs, cats, guinea pigs, and rabbits into permanent homes. We currently house our animals in foster homes and boarding facilities and are working to secure a facility in 2008 to expand our operations. ARFhouse Chicago is affiliated with ARFhouse in Sherman Texas, the third largest no-kill sanctuary in the United States. ARFhouse is located in a rural area of North Texas and recognizing the potential for a beneficial partnership with a large urban shelter, has offered invaluable support to ARFhouse Chicago. All of the animals at ARFhouse Chicago are current on vaccinations, heartworm checked, spayed or neutered, microchipped, and receive routine medical check ups. We pride ourselves on the level of care, commitment, and medical attention that our animals receive. ARFhouse Chicago NFP is an Illinois non-for-profit organization.

CSR specializes in the rescue, rehab and rehoming of shelter and stray German Shepherds. Our shepherds are first temperament-tested and then taken into our homes (never put into kennels) for a minimum of 3 weeks for their fostering period. While in our homes, the shepherds are allowed to calm down from the stress of the shelter. They are fully vetted, meaning they are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, checked for heartworm and internal parasites, and microchipped. They are housetrained and begin work on basic obedience. This period allows us to get to know each shepherd individually and is our most valuable tool when matching our dogs with their new homes.
