Zen's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, declawed, good with kids, and good with cats.

Zen's Story...
Zen was born at the shelter in March 2013 and was adopted as a kitten. He came back to us when his owners could no longer provide the quiet and stress free house he needs. Zen is very social and but does not like dogs. Zen had most of his teeth removed due to an allergy. He is healthy now and ready for a quiet home that will give him lots of attention and love. And a nice high spot for him to sleep in.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zen, a Des Moines 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 Des Moines, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Des Moines.

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