Dean's Story...
I am a volunteer favorite, and just about as sweet as sweet can be! My name is Dean and I’m about 5 years old. I arrived as a stray in mid-July 2015 and tested positive for FIV. FIV is NOT as scary as it sounds, so please let me explain. FIV is kind of like human’s HIV. It is a virus that depletes the number of white blood cells, which makes harder for me to be able to fight off infection/sickness. FIV cannot be passed from cat to person, but there is a slim possibility I could infect another cat. FIV is most commonly spread through deep bite wounds and not easily passed otherwise. Just as a precaution, I am searching for a home where I can be spoiled rotten… I mean a home where I can be the only cat. If I am the only cat in the home, there is no chance I could infect another cat, and there would be no other cats in contact with me to compromise my fragile immune system. Please research FIV and discuss any concerns with your veterinarian before deciding to adopt me. I am a super-special guy because I also have some food allergies that are controlled with a special diet of Z/D food. My friends here at the shelter try hard to make me comfortable, but I am just very stressed out living here. When I am stressed I over-groom which makes my fur coat look pretty pathetic (ok, so I basically look naked on my belly and legs). I need a special owner who will look past my ragtag looks, and special needs to see the fantastic, lovable guy I am. If you are my special angel and are willing to give me plenty of love and patience, I would be overjoyed to meet you today!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dean, a Menomonie 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 Menomonie, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Menomonie.

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