Joey's Story...
JJ & Joey aren't biological brothers but have spent the past 4 years together in a home! They were both relinquished to the shelter when their mom was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Joey was rescued by his mom as a orphan kitten and has spent the past 12 years with her! He accepted his brother JJ with open arms 4 years ago--they enjoy playing with each other but aren't always together! Joey loves to be petted but due to his age he doesn't play a whole lot. He will bring several more years of love and joy to a new family! Joey was born 07/04/10!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joey, a Des Moines 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 Des Moines, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Des Moines.

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