SCOUT's Story...
Courtesy Posting. Scout is not with Handsome Dan's Rescue, but we are covering his vet care.

A good Samaritan contacted us after she noticed a problem with the eye of a sweet stray cat she had been feeding. We told her we would cover the associated vet costs and she is currently in the process of waiting for Scout to show up again on her deck, as he does every few days. She will then let us know and bring him to meet us at one of our partner vets so we can have his eye checked out and have him seen for any other issues he may have from living out on his own.

Scout was not always a stray though. He lived with one of the neighbors, and their dog, until they moved out and left him behind. We are told that in his previous home, Scout lived peacefully with a dog and used his litter box regularly.

We will soon be looking for a good home for Scout, once he has received the medical care he needs. If you would like more info on Scout please contact Adrea directly at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SCOUT, a Cranston American Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Shorthair for sale in Cranston, or seeking a American Shorthair cat from a breeder in Cranston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Cranston 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 Cranston 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 American Shorthair breeders who help with American Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Cranston paves the way for another one to be saved.
