Hamilton's Story...
Hamilton is such a nice cat! He is a mellow guy who loves to be held and interact with people. He is 8 years old and a social worker brought him in when his owner had health problems and couldn't take care of him any more. The social worker didn't know much about him but he has been at the shelter since January and is just a great cat. Hamilton is FIV+ which is not transferable to humans or dogs. He should be the only cat or live with other FIV+ cats. Please don't pass Hamilton by if you are looking for a pet. He would love to have a home again!

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) has been associated with cats for many years, although it was only labelled as such as recently as 1986. The virus depletes the number of white blood cells, which eventually makes the cat less able to fight off infection. However, because it is such a slow acting virus many FIV positive cats can enjoy a normal lifespan with no apparent health problems resulting from the virus.

All cats receive one or more vaccinations, a basic veterinary examination, are wormed and spayed/neutered and feline leukemia tested. Cats 3 months and older are micro-chipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hamilton, a Elyria 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 Elyria, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Elyria.

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