Tonya FIV+'s Story...
What a sweet purr-box! Tonya is gentle, sweet, kind and happy, though who knows why her owner turned her over to a high - kill rural NC shelter. The shelter staff loved her so much they would not give up on saving her, and finally several rescue agencies banded together and she was transported to Cat Rescue. Tonya tested positive for the feline FIV virus or feline AIDS, which no longer means a death sentence now that more is known about it. There's no medicine, just the normal quality food and vet visits that every pet should have. With an abundance of caution, we want Tonya to be an only kitty, and with her sweet, calm nature, she'd be perfect for an older person who wants a loyal, loving companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tonya FIV+, a Chesapeake 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 Chesapeake, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chesapeake.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chesapeake 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 Chesapeake 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 Chesapeake paves the way for another one to be saved.
