Elwood's Story...
The Blues Brothers are making a special appearance at Adopt-A-Pet! Meet the one and only Elwood J. Blues (Elwood)! Although they are known for their musical crime comedy film, this Elwood sticks to the comedy part to provide you with instant entertainment! But, we’re not promising he won’t get into a little mischief when he’s exploring your home or playing with his brother (who by the way, he’s hoping you will adopt too)!

Elwood is soooo handsome! And, even better, he’s a very easy going guy, ready to explore and play anywhere he goes, and with ANYTHING! He absolutely LOVES his brother…a perfect pair for exploring, playing and cuddling together! He is new to Adopt-A-Pet, but took no time at all time to make himself at home. Elwood was born in a foster home and is now ready to find his forever home!

Behaviorally and socially, it’s best to adopt kittens in pairs, or into a home with a playful cat. Kittens really need a playmate in their forever home…and then they can get to play, and snuggle while you're not home. Check out our Pick A Pair page to see if his brother is still available, or choose another one of our playful cats or kittens.

If you are only interested in adopting a single kitten, and you’re home most of the day, and able to spend interactive time with a kitten, we will consider adopting out a kitten older than 4 months. Each foster home knows the kitten’s personalities best, and we follow their recommendations for single placements.

Starting 11/6/16, you can meet Elwood at Wilmette Pet, 625 Green Bay Road, anytime during store hours 7 days a week. (847-251-6750 www.wilmettepetcenter.com). Although you may want to adopt her on the spot, please know that you will have to go through the application process first.

Elwood’s ACTUAL date of birth is 7/21/16. His adoption fee of $135 includes his vet exam, FVRCP vaccination, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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