Facts about Tommy

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Or Chocolate (Mostly)
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Meet Tommy. He is a big boy at 11 lbs, and approximately 1 year old. But, his foster mom thinks he might not be quite done growing yet because of his big legs and feet. Tommy was brought to a veterinary hospital as a stray. So happy Adopt-A-Pet had room in one of our foster homes for him! He is super friendly and would lie in your lap forever if you let him. But, then he is off running and playing because he is still very kitten-like. He keeps trying to make friends with his feline foster sister even though she is not too interested. So he would definitely be a good companion to another friendly cat. He is also very good with the children in the foster home. If you want a young playful cat without the rowdiness of a very young kittens, please consider Tommy. Just look at this adorable face with the little smudge around his nose!

Tommy’s estimated date of birth is 9/30/15. His adoption fee of $115 includes his vet exam, FVRCP vaccinations, FIV & Feline Leukemia testing (neg), routine deworming, flea control, microchip and neuter.

About Adopt-A-Pet, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

ADOPT-A-PET is an all-volunteer non-profit animal shelter/adoption agency dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and placing them into permanent, loving homes.

ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for unclaimed animals from various municipal pounds and, space permitting, accepts other homeless, neglected or injured animals from their rescuers.

ADOPT-A-PET was founded in 1981, and has since saved the lives of over 15,000 animals. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them a suitable permanent new home.

ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. All of our animals are boarded at co-operating animal hospitals or in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted by their new families.

ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for medical problems and spayed/neutered.

ADOPT-A-PET is available for educational speaking engagements to schools and community groups in Chicago or the suburbs to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment only, after an application has been submitted.

Occasional public weekend adoption events are posted on the Home Page of our website: www.adoptapet-il.org

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process: Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment, after an application has been submitted.

How to start the process: Contact us by email or phone. An adoption counselor will return your message within 1-2 days. You will be asked to fill out an application that will ask for personal information about your family, your home and about the kind of pet you're looking for. Vet references, personal references and landlord information (if applicable) is required. You can also download an application from our website. Once you return the application, an adoption counselor will call you back for a more thorough interview, again within 1-2 days. Sometimes it may take a little longer as we're all volunteers and sometimes it gets very busy. Assuming the pet you're interested in appears to be a match for you, a meeting will then be set up. For some animals, a home check may be required. If an adoption takes place, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee. Each animal's individual adoption fee is posted in its description on our websites.
