Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Grouse's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Grouse's Story...
Our G litter of tabby and white kittens, born 9/27/14, has three funny, frisky boys, all of which have gorgeous markings.

They will be neutered and ready to go home by mid-December. These boys spent their first 7 weeks living outside with their mama, so could do well as indoor-only or indoor-outdoor kitties. Since they were older when they came to the shelter, they are a little bit more cautious than their neighbors, the F litter of girl kitties. (Yes, you can mix-and-match F and G kittens - they will do fine together). These boys should adapt fine to homes with dogs, other cats, and polite, non-shrieking children - they may hide from louder family members.

Grouse has the lightest striping on his coat, almost more like "ticking" than stripes, and lots of white on his chest and legs.

We'd love to see all kittens go to homes that have another young, playful kitten, or to send 2 of them out as a pair (which gives you a great pair discount rate), but we do not require pair adoptions. If you prefer to adopt just one, and you don't have a similarly aged kitten at home already, please read our information on Single Kitten Syndrome:

Then, when you apply for a single kitten, please let us know in the "Comments" field how you plan to deal with the "kitten crazies."

All kittens arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and with all age-appropriate vaccinations; most will need one or two booster vaccinations after arrival, and rabies vaccination between 4-6 months of age. Adoption fee for Grouse is suggested minimum $63 (more gratefully accepted). Discount for pair adoptions: $106 total for two! All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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