Employees of the Month

NW: Kristin

For the past year, Kristin has been playing with our furry guests at the NW location… come rain, shine, or accident! While riding her bike, Kristin was hit by a car (she is ok) and called from the emergency room to get her shift covered! Kristin comes home to her loving 5 year old tabby cat, Dexter, who surely is confused by the doggie scents and wonders where she has been all day!

SW: Darren

For the past 9 months, Darren has been greeting customers and guests with a smile Monday through Friday mornings at the SW location. Darren loved having a greyhound while growing up in Chicago and he is currently trying to decide which breed to adopt next. Spending so much quality time with the wonderful breeds at the SW location sure is making it a tough decision for him!

We love our dependable, hard working and happy employees at both locations! Thank you and keep up the good work!

Upcoming Events

Meet Noah, a Foster Dog at the SW Location!

We are fostering a dog at the SW location! Noah is a 15 month old Rottweiler mix from Indigo Rescue. He arrived at the Arf on June 2nd and has quickly made himself at home with our guests and employees. He will be fostered at the SW location until he finds his forever home. Noah weighs around 65 pounds and is vaccinated and neutered. He is known to be a bit apprehensive around males, but has warmed up nicely to male staff members and visitors since his arrival.
The staff and other guests are really enjoying getting to know him and they will be sad to see him leave, but they are willing to say goodbye to Noah when he moves into a loving and caring home.

For more information or to inquire about adopting Noah please visit his link on

Construction Update: SW Location!

During Construction

The spring construction plans at the SW location are a complete success! The expansion opened up the play ground, providing more space for our guests to run, take afternoon naps, and to explore.

Behr is a yellow lab who has been coming to us daily since the beginning of February, 2014. She has a sweet nature that is irresistible to all who meet her. The ever energetic Miss Behr has a number of admirers, including Capone the bulldog and Norm the chocolate lab. We are privileged to have Miss Behr at Noah’s Arf!

SW location: Oliver B.

Oliver is a 4 and a half year old Westie who loves to come and play with our SW staff and guests.
