Skye's Story...
Hi there, my name is Skye. It’s been a busy few months for me. I was rescued from the pound with my four kittens and taken to a foster home to live. I wasn’t really sure about this whole indoor living thing at first, but I have to tell ya, a girl can get used to it!

Most of my time has been spent raising my little ones, three boys and one girl. I’m a very devoted mom and must have done something right because three of them found forever homes before they were even 8 weeks old! I just have the one at home, so now its time for me to start looking for my forever home.
I’m still pretty young myself, just about a year old! Since I’ve gotten the mothering thing out of the way, I’m looking for a home where I can be pampered for a change! I’m very sweet and love to be petted.

If you'd like to meet me, please email cats@henricohumane.org to setup a visit. Don't forget to tell them you want to meet Skye!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skye, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Richmond.

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