Dottie's Story...
Hi, my name's Dottie! I was doing my very best to get by on the scary streets of Tampa. I found a house where a man was nice enough to give me some dog food (hey, it was better than starving!) every day. Then when I had babies, he asked lots of cat rescue groups for help because he has big dogs that aren't good with cats and didn't think it would be a safe place for me and my tiny babies. Thank goodness St Francis came to our rescue! Not only have I been a wonderful mama to my 4 babies, but I took in 2 orphaned kittens who were too young to be without a mama. All 6 of "my" babies are now weaned and will soon be finding their own families. I sure hope I don't get left behind. How wonderful would it be if I found my forever home first! I am just the sweetest, most loving and affectionate kitty - at least that's what my foster mama says! I love to have my belly rubbed! We think I must have belonged to someone at some point, and then they tossed me out when they moved. I am SO happy to have found my way back to the comforts and safety of indoor living! I am just a tiny girl, only 5 lbs, and practically w kitten myself! I hope you'll consider me as your new furry best friend!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dottie, a Tampa 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 Tampa, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Tampa.

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