Hi there friends! Do you remember me? In 2011 I found the most wonderful home. It was a quiet home, just me and my mom. Like me, she was a little older and our days were filled with naps in the sun, snuggling and lots of wonderful companionship. I had the perfect life where I could be the only pet and my mom showered me with love; life was very, very good. My heart and my belly were always full. I had hoped we would always be together, but when my mom became ill and could no longer care for me, everything changed. My mom told me she had to move in with her family and that I could not come with her. But when the nice lady from Young at Heart picked me up, she promised me I was safe, loved and would find a family again, and that’s why I’m writing today. Can you please help me find my new family? I am a great kitty! I am healthy, full of snuggles, great with my litterbox and have lots of love to give. My only request is a quiet home without other cats, and preferably no small kids, as I tend to be a little shy. But I am good with quiet, cat savvy dogs! I would love to find someone just like my mom, she loved me oh so much. We had a great life and I would make a wonderful companion for someone older like her. If you know someone who could use a furry friend to bring some comfort, love and joy into their life, please let them know about me! I hope to hear from you soon. And, if you don’t mind, could you please share my story, too? Thanks! Love, Chad

About Young At Heart Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Young At Heart Pet Rescue is a non-profit rescue organization specializing in the rescue and rehoming of mature dogs and cats. Our goal is to decrease the euthanasia rate for older, adoptable animals and to educate the public on the benefits of adopting a mature animal.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are located in foster homes and our cats are located at Lake Zurich's Petco or at Best Friends Pet Care in Prairie View. We are a small group where we believe in quality over quantity, so that each pet we rescue has a wonderful life while it's with us, and an even better life when it is adopted.

All adopters must fill out an application before an appointment to meet a dog will be scheduled or a go home meeting with a cat can be scheduled.
