Rescue organizations play a huge role in helping homeless cats and dogs find permanent loving homes. The reasons for adopting from a rescue are countless. A pet can sense that you are a kind person, and will reward you with a lifetime of unconditional love. Twice as many cats than dogs are euthanized every year. The lucky shelter cats (usually kittens) are adopted to loving homes. The unlucky ones (usually the older and special needs), are on the short list for euthanasia. ALL deserve to live happy lives in homes where they are loved forever!
Come Meet our Pets:
A cats and dogs are lovable, charming pets that offers endless fun and entertainment.
So, if you're thinking of adopting , keep in mind these 10 tips about how to keep him healthy and happy:
Dogs and cats need to be fed good, nutritious food regularly, at least once a day.
They also need plenty of cool, clean, fresh water. Cats do NOT need milk
Keep inside your home with you and your family (but be careful certain plants even in the house can be poisonous)
Do NOT automatically have your cat declawed. Declawing has been compared to removing your fingernails. To prevent your cat from scratching or tearing your furniture, trim his claws regularly and provide him with a small rug or scratching post. Verbal scolding can also work wonders.
Unlike dogs, cats do NOT need to go outside.
Cats are almost always naturally housebroken and will use a litter box even at an early age.
Never allowed any pet outside alone they can get lost or hurt and sometimes get killed.
Make sure your pet always wears identification and are micro chipped, even if you never let him outside.
Unlike most dogs, cats do NOT need to be bathed. A healthy cat keeps himself clean and well groomed.
Make sure your pet gets good veterinary care, including all necessary examinations and shots.
Your pet will be spayed or neutered so they will enjoy a longer, healthier life!
Give your pet plenty of love and affection. Though cats are more independent than dogs, they all thrive on your companionship.
We recommend that you consider TWO cats. Two are company for each other - and two will bring more love into your life!
Don't forget wether dog or cat its a life long commitment!
