Tapir's Info...

Tapir's Story...
This gorgeous girl is Tapir. She and her litter were dropped off at the humane society when they were only 4 weeks old. They came in hissing and swatting, and she is still learning to trust humans. She is very independent and prefers to do what she wants, when she wants. She does like being held, as it is still scary for her. She depends on her littermates for comfort, so she needs to be adopted with one. Her favorite activities in her foster home include romping around the house with her siblings and zooming up and down her cat tower. She met the resident dog and as long as he leaves her alone, she is ok. Because she prefers to take her time getting to know new humans, she will need an adult only home. Cats can live 15-20 years, so she and her siblings are looking for a long term commitment! If you think Tapir and one of her siblings would be a good fit for your household, fill out an application at the front desk!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tapir, a Bellingham Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Bellingham, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Bellingham.

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