Rock's Story...
This guy. He's got quite a story, and we may never know all of the details, but what you should know is this: Rock's done hard time for a crime he didn't commit - being left behind by some neglectful owner. When we pulled him from Animal Control, we quickly discovered that, despite his difficult past, Rock still has a loving heart that allows him to let others in. He's playful, loving and even chatty - toward fellow cats and people too. If you're the type of compassionate person who's been through some hard things, but have succeeded in spite of them, you might just find a soul mate (and some serious inspiration) in Rock.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rock, a Chicago Maine Coon cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maine Coon for sale in Chicago, or seeking a Maine Coon cat from a breeder in Chicago.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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 Maine Coon breeders who help with Maine Coon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
