Tux's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Tux's Story...
Sweet, affectionate Tux lost his first home to fire in June, was adopted in August, and now the poor dear has lost his second home because he couldn't get along with the home's resident dog. His new family tried for two months, but came to the sad realization that it would be better for Tux to come back to the shelter, where he might find a home that better suits him and where he will be happier.

This large black and white male tuxedo is especially affectionate -- he loves a lap, loves to be held, loves to be smooched on the head, loves to be brushed, and also loves all humans and other cats very much. He never quarrels with others, and adores all humans he meets, of all ages. Tux would make a wonderful addition to just about any family, as long as a dog is not part of the family.

Tux is probably 10 to 12 years old, is box-trained, neutered, current on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia. Adoption fee for adult cats is $50, cash or check payable to Town of Scituate. For more information or an adoption application, email ClayvilleCritters@cox.net, call the shelter at (401) 647-7200, or visit the shelter during regular hours: Tue, Wed, Fri 7 to 11 a.m., Thursday 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tux, a Clayville 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 Clayville, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Clayville.

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