Dakota's Story...
Meet Dakota
This shiny, sweet fellow is very handsome thanks to his beautiful haircoat & big eyes. Dakota was found in a longtime BHS supporter’s driveway &, as friendly as he was right from the start, we suspect he got left there by someone. He is a typical kitten who loves to play, especially with his special mousey. His foster mom says he is quite smart & even mimics his doggie buddy & obeys some verbal commands. Dakota’s favorite place is sitting on the arm of the armchair watching TV. No word yet on his favorite shows! He plays well with small dogs, but we don’t know yet about larger dogs or other cats. He is afraid of children, but probably would do fine with older children. He likes to be brushed, but sometimes is just too busy to sit still for long. Dakota has been very healthy. We think he was born sometime in June, 2015. He will be neutered by the middle of December & have all the usual preventive medical care---deworming, vaccines, testing for FeLV/FIV, & microchipping. To hear more about Dakota, call the BHS office at 540/586-6100 or complete an Adoption Application at www.bhsva.org.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dakota, a Bedford 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 Bedford, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Bedford.

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