Rupert's Story...
Hello there, I’m Rupert. I was recently rescued from the wild outdoors. Now I’m living the good life in a cozy foster home. But I hear that the best type of home to have is a forever home, so I want to find one of those!

In addition to being a quite handsome, I’m also very affectionate. I love people. I may not technically be a kitten anymore, but I’m still a playful little guy. I’m a very curious kitty. I love to explore and try new things. I’ve tried out all the toys in my foster home – mice, balls, jingly things, even those wand toys with the strings and feathers on the end. But when playtime is over, I love to snuggle!
I don’t have a lot of requirements for my forever home; all I need is lots of love.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rupert, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Richmond.

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