Facts about Monkey

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Monkey is a big, beautiful, 4 year old, tabby male. He was surrendered to the Guelph Humane Society when his owner's newborn baby developed serious allergies. Unfortunately Monkey was very unhappy in the shelter environment as he did not get the affection he craved and he was taken intro foster care through GRAB.

Monkey is tall and lean with a long, thin tail and amazingly gorgeous, striped toes. He enjoys a game of fetch or “birdie-on-a-string”, but his favourite thing is lots and lots of cuddles. Monkey needs a lot of attention or he gets frustrated – he hates knowing something is going on in a part of the house he can't get to so he needs a home where he will have full access to the whole house.

Monkey is healthy and has been fully vetted. His teeth have a bit of plaque, but not unusual for his age. His fur was a bit dry upon arrival but a new diet of healthier food and an occasional brushing has already made a difference. He loves his toy mousey and plastic spring. He is a chatty boy and will happily carry on a conversation with you. His meow has a beautiful “puurrrupp” quality.

Monkey gets along very well with the house dog, but not with the house cat. He would do best in a home with a confident, but polite dog, or no other pets, and a family with lots of love to give. Monkey's foster home has updated us that he seems to be frightened of young, busy children, so a home with no kids, or with older, calmer kids may be best!

Monkey is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed rescue. The adoption donation is $165. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. Please fill out our Adoption Form at if you are interested. You can also reach us by email at

About Grand River All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

As a non-profit animal rescue group our focus is:

To adopt dogs, cats and other companion animals into suitable homes.

To ensure that all dogs and cats placed by our rescue are spayed and neutered to ensure that we are not contributing to the pet overpopulation problem.

To promote responsible and healthy pet care, including humane training techniques and healthy diets.
to rescue animals from over-crowded shelters and the streets.

Our members are understanding and caring people who are pet owners and caregivers. They understand the care and attention that pets require but also how fulfilling (if occasionally challenging) a life with pets can be. We're not here just for the animals, but for their owners as well!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are all located in foster homes and an application must be approved in order to meet one of our pets.

Our Adoption Process...

Grand River All Breed Rescue's adoption process involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We follow this process as we do have a responsibility to ensure that we place each pet in a home that is suitable and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' life.

We match our rescues to their new homes, and filling out an adoption application, or proceeding with our adoption process does not guarantee the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion.

Please note that once we begin an application, we hope to have it completed within a couple days, based upon availability, particularly of your references. We are just as excited to find our pets their forever home as you are to adopt!

All GRAB animal require an adoption donation. Our adoption donations help us to pay for the many costs associated with rescuing animals, including veterinary bills, food, litter and other pet supplies, and administrative costs. The majority of our animals are adopted out for less than what it cost us to rescue them, and we do not make money on our pets. All adoption donations go directly back into our account which allows us to continue rescuing animals.

Currently our adoption donation for dogs is $375 and for cats is $175. Rabbits are adopted out for $60 and are spayed or neutered. Please ask us about adoption fees for other small pets, including guinea pigs, degus, etc.

For dogs and cats, our adoption donation includes a veterinary exam, vaccines, deworming and flea treatment (if needed), spay or neuter and microchip.
