Layla-SPONSORED's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, declawed, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Layla-SPONSORED's Story...
SWEET SENIOR, SPECIAL NEEDS GIRL LOOKING FOR A SPECIAL HOME! Her adoption fee has been sponsored so there is no cost to adopt her. Sweet, friendly Layla is about 11 yrs, front declawed and is so incredibly loving. She's friendly, loves the companionship of people, is great with dogs, but we aren't sure about kitties. Her previous owners brought her to the vet because she had a wound on her neck, which they didn't want to treat and wanted to euthanize her. The clinic staff felt she was such a loving kitty they offered to take her if the owner would surrender her to the clinic, which they did. Angels on Wheels was called and asked if we could take her, which we couldn't say no.

Layla's wound appeared to be a bite wound from another animal. The owner didn't know so that's just a guess. She was treated at the clinic, but the wound didn't heal. Our vets surgically put in a drain, then treated her with an antibiotic shot. 2 weeks later it still wasn't healing so she spent a few more days at the vet, they did a culture of the wound, and started her on Clavamox. That seemed to work because her wound has finally all healed up.

More bad new for this sweet girl. Out of no where, her vertigo went off. She began walking as if she was drunk. They did x-rays found nothing, did some special tests found nothing, no ear polyps were found, and no evidence of a ruptured ear drum, her blood work was fine. At this point we are not sure why the imbalance, and she may have it for the rest of her life. That doesn't stop her from getting around though. She uses the stairs, uses the kitty box with no problem, eats, drink even plays. If she turns too quickly she will fall over. She's great with dogs, but because of her vertigo problem, we feel a home with a senior dogs or smaller dogs who are calm. We don't want her to be knocked over by large dogs given she can't move out of the way quickly.

We did have an adopter for Layla, but she travels a lot and didn't feel given Layla's condition she was the right match. The adopter offered to donate the adoption fee so that Layla could be sponsored for a family who would be a better match for her.

Layla is being fostered in a home Plainfield, which is where you would go meet her with an approved adoption application. You can find find the adoption application by going to our website at, and clicking on the applications tab. We do not have a physical building so there are no viewing hours, thus the reason for the application needs to be submitted prior to making an appointment for a meet and greet with this adorable kitten.

Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but is required prior to making arrangements for a meet and greet as all of our animals are cared for in homes. We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The adoption fee is sponsored for that special family who would like to give her a forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Layla-SPONSORED, a Naperville 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 Naperville, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Naperville.

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