Chad's Story...
Age: 11 years

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

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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