Lance's Story...
Meet Lance, a big orange love. This friendly stray just came in off the street on Halloween, thanks to his finder and longtime feeder who notified us about a stray. Far from feral, Lance is ridiculously sweet, and as you can see in the photo above he is all about the attention. While waiting for his vet appointment–a high stress situation–he meowed a few times then enjoyed some chin scratches and fell asleep. ! More on this buff guy to come!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lance, a Chicago American Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Shorthair for sale in Chicago, or seeking a American Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chicago breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even American Shorthair breeders who help with American Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
