Tripod's Info...

Tripod's Story...
When Tripod was rescued from animal control he was only using three legs and was thought to have nerve-damage in his left front leg. Medical examination, however, found that his leg problem was only from a parasite and after proper treatment, Tripod was just fine! From day one nothing ever stopped this little guy from playing, having fun and always being sweet-natured. Tripod has built relationships with the dog and cats in his foster home and has blended well with another litter of kittens close to his age. Even with all the activity in his foster home Tripod still doesn't like loud noises ... and hides when the vacuum comes out. And he really prefers it if kids don't play chase or scream:) Tripod loves to be cozy and snuggle with his foster family while watching TV in the evening or sleeping in their bed at night.
Tripod's adoption fee is $100. In addition to being neutered, microchipped and parasite-free, Tripod has tested negative for feline leukemia and FIV. If you would like to meet Tripod or ask questions about him please call Helping Strays at 618-282-7387. Thank you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tripod, a Columbia Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Columbia, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Columbia.

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