Dalton's Story...
Male (neutered)
Short-haired brown tabby with white
3-4 years old

Dalton's story is another one of our heartbreakers. We captured Dalton, along with his brother Dawson and his mother Damsel from a backyard in Speedway. They were all feral. Dalton and Dawson were about 5 months old, so we neutered them and started socializing them when they got very sick. Dawson didn't survive his illness. Dalton eventually bonded with a pretty calico named Melika. After months, Dalton and Melika were adopted together by a Speedway resident. After 6 months or so, she told us she couldn't keep the cats - but her reasons kept changing (might be losing house, couldn't afford, her bad health). We didn't have an open foster and did all we could to keep the cats with her, including providing food. A couple months later, she told us her son had taken care of rehoming the cats - against our contract. We got a call a few weeks later from the Hendricks County Animal Shelter, where Dalton was turned in after being caught in a humane cat trap. The poor guy had some signs of frostbite on his ears. We scoured the area with flyers trying to find Melika, but had no luck. The "adopter" would not respond to our phone calls or knocks at her door. Melika is still missing.

(Damsel, Dalton's mother was trapped, spayed, ear-tipped and released in Speedway. We have seen signs that she is still living in the neighborhood.)

Dalton is far more mellow than he was in his feral days and is looking for a human to bond with. He can be quite talkative. He would also like a cat friend, preferably a friendly female. No kids, no dogs - they would be too much for his stress levels.

Current food: Authority Adult kibble and Triumph turkey canned cat food.
Current litter: Grreat Choice non-scoopable scented clay litter

All of our animals are in foster care. For the protection of our foster families, we will not arrange a meet-and-greet with the animal until an application is completed. Please email to request an application (DOC, PDF or email format).

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dalton, a Speedway 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 Speedway, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Speedway.

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