Gertie's Story...
Gertie is a sweet, young tortie. You can meet her in person at the Petco at Halsted and Barry.

A few months ago, we were advised that Chicago Animal Care and Control had a list of cats scheduled for euthanization. Gertie was on that list. We pulled her just hours from being put down.

After we rescued her, Gertie went straight to our vet to be examined. She was tested for FIV/FeLK and was negative. We put Revolution on her to make sure that she did not bring any fleas or other parasites to her new foster home. We could not find a spay scar. So we had her spayed. We also had her micro-chipped, de-wormed and vaccinated for Rabies and Distemper.

Gertie is now ready for adoption!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gertie, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chicago.

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