Animal Rescue of Southern Illinois (ARSI) is a non-profit, state licensed, no-kill animal rescue. We have no shelter location; we are a network of foster homes. We like this approach to rescue as it serves the animals in our program the opportunity to live in a home setting and we are able to gauge their personalities and habits prior to placing them with a family. We also spend considerable effort to send animals from out local "kill" shelters/pounds to other like-minded. no kill animal rescue groups. ARSI is entirely volunteer driven. 100% of money raised through fundraising or from our adoption fees are spent on helping the animals.
