Dr. Dexter's Story...
Sweet and loving Dr. Dexter was found abandoned in a South Elgin home in November 2013 with another cat, where they had been living unattended for three weeks. He was very frightened, and it took 24 hours to find him! Eventually he was found hiding behind a disconnected furnace, cold and very scared. Dr. Dexter and his friend were taken in and fostered by a Good Samaritan for ten months, during which he warmed up nicely and showed himself to be a curious, playful, and vocal love bug! He just loves attention and play time, so be sure to give this great cat some much needed affection! When rescued, both cats were front declawed.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dr. Dexter, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic 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 Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
