Ramona and Mendel
SPECIAL NEEDS - subsidized adoption fee
Ramona: Domestic Shorthair, born in February 2016, Black, Spayed female 

Mendel: Domestic Shorthair, born in February 2016, Black, Neutered male

We are an adorable, energetic sister and brother who our former foster mom considers us “pure joy.”  We're the perfect combination of being affectionate as well as energetic. We love toys and the more the better. Ramona loves to chase round balls; Mendel loves to carry soft toys in his mouth. We got the opportunity to run on a big cat wheel. It's a great way to tire us out! We have the spirit of mountaineers, so if you have a tall cat condo we'll really be in love! We are both in great health, have beautiful black and shiny coats but we have both tested positive for the Corona Virus.  A small percentage of cats get sick with the virus and most don’t, so we think we’re going to be O.K. but we need someone with a big heart to give us a chance at rescue. Can that be you?

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Fees:
-Dogs and puppies: $250
-Cats and kittens: $150
-Two cats or kittens (bonded pair price): $175
-Senior pets: $75 (dogs 8 and older, cats 10 and older)
An additional $50 deposit for unneutered or unspayed animal is collected until proof of alteration can be provided.

We only adopt to homes in the Chicagoland area.

Our fees include a full medical exam by a veterinarian. This includes a Feline Leukemia and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) test for cats, Rabies and Distemper Vaccines, deworming and Spay/Neuter. Dogs receive a Heartworm Check, Spay/Neuter, Rabies and Distemper Vaccines, Canine Flu Vaccine, deworming, and Kennel Cough preventative.

Our modest adoption fees do not cover the procedures and vet work that we provide the animals. We fundraise to make up the difference. Any ongoing medical needs that C.A.R.E. is aware of are explained fully, (including daily medicine costs), to the potential adopter, and become the responsibility of the adopter.

Our adoption process has evolved from many years of experience. The goal of our adoption counselors is to make a good match between animal and family. We get to know each cat or dog's unique personality and different needs. If a specific dog, for example, has large amounts of energy and needs lots of space to run, it is unlikely that he would meet the needs of a person who works long hours and would be unable to exercise the dog. It would be a mismatch that would be bad for dog and human alike. Our adoption counselors look forward to working with you to help you find the right pet for your home.
