Facts about Denton

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tan Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Medium
Denton is 2 years-old, very shy, vision impaired and FIV+ (healthy).

Denton’s Story:
Until 5 months ago, Denton was living on the street.
He was trapped for TNR (trap, neuter, release) and ended up hospitalized for a month due to complications from an abscess. During that time, it became evident that Denton's vision is severely impaired and he cannot be safely returned to life on his busy street.

This “supposedly unadoptable” cat is absolutely adoptable!
As you can see from the attached video, he has shown tremendous potential to become a social cat. But for now, he is shy and will need a home with someone who won’t care if he wants to hang out in the closet. His perfect human will give him a bed in there until he is ready to trust and come out.

His life has been so difficult and he’s had so many challenges and yet, he’s a sweet cat who just needs a break. Denton needs someone to show him love and kindness. Are you out there?

About CONNER'S CAUSE for Supposedly Unadoptable Cats

About Our Rescue Group...

We believe that every cat deserves to be cared for whether they play with you, curl up in your lap, or prefer to hang out by themselves or with other feline companions.

Please visit our website for additional information at www.GiveMeShelterProject.org and click on the tab: "Conner's Cause for Supposedly Unadoptable Cats".

Conner’s Cause is an initiative that Give Me Shelter Project has launched to try to find loving forever homes for the Supposedly Unadoptable Cats that currently reside in animal shelters and with rescue groups.

Our organization has generally defined "supposedly unadoptable cats" as those who range in temperament from semi-friendly to semi-feral. For the purposes of this initiative, we have broadened our definition of “supposedly unadoptable cats” to include other categories of cats that are difficult to place. These include: seniors, handicapped, FIV+, FeLV+, cats with treatable and untreatable illnesses.

We invite you to consider adopting a "Supposedly Unadoptable Cat". Please join “Conner’s Cause” and BRING HOME THE MAGIC!

Our Adoption Process...

This page on Adopt a Pet is showcasing cats from various animal rescue organizations. Each rescue organization has their own adoption process and fees. When you submit an inquiry, you will be routed to the organization that asked us to post the cat.

You will be asked to fill out an adoption application and generally a telephone interview will follow. Next, a home visit will be performed to help "ready" your home for the new cat(s).

While we hope that the commitment you make will be life long, all cats adopted out through this initiative will be returnable to the organization for the life of the cat.
