Facts about Jax

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 10737638
  • Hair: Unknown


Good with dogs, cats and children, but is displaying signs of stress and seems to need a quieter environment to alleviate it.  
Jax is a pretty lazy cat who likes to lay around close to his people. He sometimes acts like he's a dog, greeting you at the door or following behind you throughout the house waiting to be pet. He's obsessed with socks and likes to take full pairs and carry them around the house. He likes to cuddle briefly, especially in the mornings when he is the most friendly, but once he decides he's had enough, he's done.
We are looking for a good home for Jax where his stress level is reduced.

About Safe House Animal Rescue League

About Our Rescue Group...

For the homeless, abused, or neglected animals of the Illinois Valley area, Safe House is a beacon of hope, a place for second chances, a warm spot to rest tired heads, to heal wounds and start anew.

Safe House Animal Rescue League is a 501(c)3 (nonprofit) organization run exclusively by dedicated volunteers. We are implementing innovative and progressive life-saving programs throughout central Illinois that pave the way for No-Kill communities where no pets are killed simply for being homeless.

We focus on rescuing pets who are at the greatest risk of being killed in shelters or animal control facilities and have saved hundreds of lives through our adoption programs. Safe House is a foster home based rescue where all of our pets live in home environments with real families until they are adopted. This prepares them for a successful transition to your home and allows us to know each pet as an individual.

Please get involved and help us save more lives – volunteer, foster, donate.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Safe House is based in LaSalle County, IL. Our pets live in foster homes so pets are shown by appointment only, but our volunteers will meet you any time of day or night to introduce you to the pet of your dreams. We also partner with our local Petsmart for adoption events.
