This is Toews, the captain of his litter! Toews is a very sweet affectionate boy…the leader of the pack. He is a typical cat, ready to play and explore, and when he is ready to settle in, he seeks attention and will climb on your lap. One of his favorite things to do right now is to tap his nose on his foster mom’s nose…just his cute way to show affection. Toews has been in a foster home with children, other cats and respectful dogs. Although he allows the children to pet him, he is not comfortable with them picking him up. He is more trusting of adults.

Toews is shy with new people, but once he gets to know you, he will be a total love! He will seek attention, cuddle on your lap, allow you to pick him up, and purr away to let you know he is happy. If you possess the patience to warm his heart, and gain his trust, he will fill your home with gratitude and warm your heart!

Check out his YouTube video to see how sweet he really is.

Toews has always been around other cats, ever since he was a kitten. He truly loves to play with his brother, but his foster homes believes that he would be totally fine solo - he can amuse himself with toys. If you are interested in a pair, please check out our Pick A Pair page to see if his brother is still available! If there is already another playful cat or kitten in your house, that would work out too…he already proved he is great at making friends!

Toews’estimated date of birth is 9/8/14. His adoption fee of $50 includes: his exam, FVRCP vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and neuter.

About Adopt-A-Pet, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

ADOPT-A-PET is an all-volunteer non-profit animal shelter/adoption agency dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and placing them into permanent, loving homes.

ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for unclaimed animals from various municipal pounds and, space permitting, accepts other homeless, neglected or injured animals from their rescuers.

ADOPT-A-PET was founded in 1981, and has since saved the lives of over 15,000 animals. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them a suitable permanent new home.

ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. All of our animals are boarded at co-operating animal hospitals or in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted by their new families.

ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for medical problems and spayed/neutered.

ADOPT-A-PET is available for educational speaking engagements to schools and community groups in Chicago or the suburbs to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment only, after an application has been submitted.

Occasional public weekend adoption events are posted on the Home Page of our website: www.adoptapet-il.org

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process: Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment, after an application has been submitted.

How to start the process: Contact us by email or phone. An adoption counselor will return your message within 1-2 days. You will be asked to fill out an application that will ask for personal information about your family, your home and about the kind of pet you're looking for. Vet references, personal references and landlord information (if applicable) is required. You can also download an application from our website. Once you return the application, an adoption counselor will call you back for a more thorough interview, again within 1-2 days. Sometimes it may take a little longer as we're all volunteers and sometimes it gets very busy. Assuming the pet you're interested in appears to be a match for you, a meeting will then be set up. For some animals, a home check may be required. If an adoption takes place, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee. Each animal's individual adoption fee is posted in its description on our websites.
