White Socks's Story...
White Socks is an adorable girl with a lovely spirit to match. When we first met her in 2006, she was one of 16 cats living with a gentleman and his elderly mother. An MCSPCA volunteer took all of the cats to a spay clinic to ensure that the breeding would stop and they would be properly vaccinated. All was well until this year, when the owner contacted us for help again. His mother was now in a nursing home and his siblings were forcing sale of the home. The house sold quickly and we only had about 10 days to find homes for the cats before the owner's eviction. Poor White Socks and Skinny had to board at a vet's office temporarily because we had no foster home for them. Eventually one of our foster volunteers was able to take them, which was good news but also meant another transition for them. Despite having lost her home..... her owner.....most of her "siblings"..... and going to 2 unfamiliar places, White Socks' sunny personality shone through. By the end of the first day in her new foster home, she was meowing and asking for attention!! Considering that cats do don't well with change, White Socks is pretty remarkable!

She is also quite playful (younger than her 8 years would suggest) and LOVES catnip. When she's excited to see you, she'll "pop a wheelie." She's very affectionate, fine with other cats, and reliably uses her litter box. White Socks is negative for both Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS (FIV) and is current on vaccinations.

To adopt you must first complete an adoption application and either come to an adoption event or arrange to meet the cat in its foster home. We do not do same day adoptions so, generally, we can only adopt within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gaithersburg 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 Gaithersburg 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 Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gaithersburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
