Facts about Apollo

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Apollo is a lovely, 4-month old kitten (born mid-March, 2016). He's affectionate, playful and friendly! He likes to pretend to be shy at first with new people and animals, but that only lasts about five seconds.

He's beautiful and black all over without even a hint of white (very unusual!). He is short-haired, but his tail is very thick and fluffy and puffs into a huge bottle-brush when he gets excited!

He gets along great with the dogs in the house, but does like to play with their tails so a tolerant (or tailless!) dog would be best. He's great with the house cat – curious, but not pushy. She needs more time to accept him, but he could adjust to living with another cat easily. He does want to play with her so playful friends of any species would be great. He's gentle around people – he does like to bounce around and pounce on feet, but always with his claws in. He always starts purring as soon as he sees his foster mom and spends a good part of the day in her lap.

Like all kittens Apollo has boundless energy and needs space to run and play and lots of play and cuddle time with his family.

Apollo uses the litter perfectly and so far will eat anything he is given. He's a gorgeous, sweet and funny little guy and would be a great pet for any household!

Apollo is available for adoption through Grand River All Breed rescue. The adoption donation is $165. All of our cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated as part of their adoption. Please fill out our Adoption Form if you are interested. You can also reach us by email at

About Grand River All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

As a non-profit animal rescue group our focus is:

To adopt dogs, cats and other companion animals into suitable homes.

To ensure that all dogs and cats placed by our rescue are spayed and neutered to ensure that we are not contributing to the pet overpopulation problem.

To promote responsible and healthy pet care, including humane training techniques and healthy diets.
to rescue animals from over-crowded shelters and the streets.

Our members are understanding and caring people who are pet owners and caregivers. They understand the care and attention that pets require but also how fulfilling (if occasionally challenging) a life with pets can be. We're not here just for the animals, but for their owners as well!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are all located in foster homes and an application must be approved in order to meet one of our pets.

Our Adoption Process...

Grand River All Breed Rescue's adoption process involves an adoption application, reference checks, and discussion about the potential adoptive home, including a home visit. We follow this process as we do have a responsibility to ensure that we place each pet in a home that is suitable and committed to caring for the pet for the rest of its' life.

We match our rescues to their new homes, and filling out an adoption application, or proceeding with our adoption process does not guarantee the acceptance of an adoption application. We reserve the right to refuse an applicant for any reason, at our discretion.

Please note that once we begin an application, we hope to have it completed within a couple days, based upon availability, particularly of your references. We are just as excited to find our pets their forever home as you are to adopt!

All GRAB animal require an adoption donation. Our adoption donations help us to pay for the many costs associated with rescuing animals, including veterinary bills, food, litter and other pet supplies, and administrative costs. The majority of our animals are adopted out for less than what it cost us to rescue them, and we do not make money on our pets. All adoption donations go directly back into our account which allows us to continue rescuing animals.

Currently our adoption donation for dogs is $375 and for cats is $175. Rabbits are adopted out for $60 and are spayed or neutered. Please ask us about adoption fees for other small pets, including guinea pigs, degus, etc.

For dogs and cats, our adoption donation includes a veterinary exam, vaccines, deworming and flea treatment (if needed), spay or neuter and microchip.
