Kelby's Story...
Hey everybody! I’m Kelby! My siblings, Madison, Posey, Gillaspie, Panik, Casilla, and I were recently rescued by Henrico Humane Society. We were very little when they first took us in, but now we’ve grown big and strong. Our foster home is pretty nice, but the other kitties tell us that forever homes are even better, so we’ve made it our mission to find one of those!

We’re all adorable, fluffy little balls of fun, but you probably want to know something special about me! Well here goes! I love to talk and to talk and to talk some more. Oh, and I love to snuggle. Snuggling is the best. Snuggles and chats – that’s the life for me! And I’m really cute. And I love to play with all kinds of toys. And I love to nap. Napping is the greatest. Did I say that already?

I would love to find a forever home with lots of toys for me to play with, big cat trees for me to climb, and windows for me to sunbathe in while I nap. I also really love people, so it would be pretty great to find a forever home with people who will give me lots and lots of pets and head scratches and belly rubs, and let me snuggle whenever I want.

The best way to ensure you have a good chance of adopting me is to fill out an online application at We take applications on a first come, first served basis, so applying quickly is always recommended!

Our adoption events are every Saturday, excluding holidays, at the Petco next to Trader Joe's in Short Pump from 11:00 to 3:00 (11331 West Broad Street, Glen Allen, VA). To find out if I will be attending this week's adoption event, please email

If you're not sure which cat you're interested in, or are just beginning to search for a companion, our adoption coordinators can help! Just fill out a short questionnaire at that will help us match you with our wonderful cats or visit us at our adoption stand.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kelby, a Richmond 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 Richmond, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten 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.
