Facts about Atticus
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
I am already neutered.
ATTICUS is a beautiful, solid gray 18-month-old male kitty whose attributes lead us to believe he might be a Russian Blue mix: he is alert, affectionate, playful, energetic, intelligent, and has a beautiful, shiny, dense coat. One pet is never quite enough for this boy—he will nudge your hand for more. When it's time to play, he is happy to chase a red piece of yarn around the house, pulled by one of his people; then when it's time for his humans to take a break, he is happy to play with the ball of yarn all on his own. At night he likes to snuggle and curl up at the foot of the bed. He uses his litter box religiously, prefers his wave-shaped scratching post to furniture, and would love a tall cat tree to indulge his desire to climb. He is curious and smart and gets along well with kids. He has been lovingly cared for in a foster home with two adults and an 8-yr-old girl; hi s foster family wanted to keep him, but discovered that their daughter is highly allergic to cats. Atticus was abandoned at a local vet after his urethra became blocked with crystals, and the vet performed a life-saving surgery that cured him of the problem. He is now a healthy boy, and his only special requirement is that he stay on a diet that reduces crystal formation (thus he cannot share food in a multi-cat household). His adoption fee is $75, which is strictly to help cover our costs. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested negative for FIV/FELV, microchipped, deflead and dewormed and comes with a free vet visit. He is currently in foster care.

Our mission is to provide care and find loving homes for companion animals of our community, with a focus on those with special needs. Currently we only work with Cats. We offer temporary housing in foster homes until they can be placed through our adoption process. We have adoption centers within both Petsmarts in Eugene, at Chad Drive, near Costco, and 29th and Willamette; PetCo by Valley River Center and Wags Emporium on Coburg Rd. WCDC works with humane societies, other animal rescue groups, the public and government animal services agencies to offer them relief from their overpopulation problem. All cats in our custody receive the medical care they need. WCDC is a non-profit organization. All money raised is used to help WCDC save as many animal lives as possible.
Come Meet Our Pets...
Our cats can be seen at Petsmart on Chad Drive and on Willamette St, at Petco near Valley River Center and Wags Emporium on Coburg Rd, seven days a week during normal business hours. We do have adoption counselors available on weekends or by appointment or from 11-4pm Sat.-Sun.
Our Adoption Process...
All potential adopters are required to complete our application and contract. Our contract stipulates the requirements for care of our pets. These documents are available through e-mail or at our adoption events. The documents are reviewed by our staff and together with a face to face interview we explore the potential new home. If all parties agree to the specifics of the contract the dog or cat can go home. Adoption fee varies with age of pet. All pets are current on vaccinations, health checked by our veterinarian, De-wormed, treated with flea medication, spayed or neutered, and cats are felv/fiv tested.
