Facts about Shadow

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tortoiseshell
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: C1043
  • Hair: Short
Shadow, Hurricane, MaryJane, Miss, and Fluffers all arrived as surrenders from the same owner, who could no longer care for them. They all get along with each other fine and are sharing Cat Room 6 right now, but none need to be adopted together.

Shadow is a pretty dilute tortoiseshell girl (mostly grey) who, at 10 years old, is one of three seniors in this family group. She is very laid-back, a bit shy around strangers, and is affectionate but not too pushy. She is an easy keeper who is a little bit overweight and should be on a gradual weight loss regimen to regain a more svelte figure. Shadow also has a slightly kinked tail. We think she would adapt fairly quickly to pretty much any type of family, including one with other pets.

All pets arrive spayed/neutered, dewormed, microchipped and vaccinated. Adoption fee for Shadow is suggested minimum $20 (more gratefully accepted), or she is eligible for the Senior for Senior program: adopters over age 65 may name their own adoption fee (even $0). All pets are placed with a 30-day money-back trial period, to give pet and family enough time to discover any unknown allergies or other conflicts. Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your donation to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

About Forget Me Not Animal Shelter

About Our Shelter...

We are a no-kill animal shelter in Ferry County, WA, and are staffed primarily by volunteers. We receive no funding from any government source, and are supported by donations and grants.

Donate to Our Shelter...

Come Meet Our Pets...

The shelter is located at 49 W Curlew Lake Rd, Republic; we have open hours every Wednesday and Saturday from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. and also can schedule appointments for preapproved applicants to meet the pets.

We do transports of adopted pets to the Seattle and Spokane areas at least once each month, and can sometimes schedule transports to other locations in WA, ID, OR, MT as needed.

Our Adoption Process...

Our minimum adoption donations are indicated on each pet's listing.

The first step toward adoption is to fill out the application, which we can email to you or you can find on our website:

http://forgetmenotshelter.org/Application

Filling out the application in no way commits you to adopting - it simply enables us to get you preapproved, in case you decide you want to adopt. If you are then approved and offered a pet placement, you may always refuse the placement. If you accept a placement, we always give you three days (for puppies and kittens) or thirty days (for adult dogs and cats) to live with each other; if during that time you decide that your new pet simply won't work out, for any reason, we will accept the pet back with a full refund of your adoption donation. You could either return the pet directly to us, or have it picked up on our next transport! I must say, we are very proud of our successful placement record - we really work hard to make sure you and your pet will be a great match.

If you are out of our immediate area, we ask that you email some photos of your home, yard (including fence if you have one), any "animal-specific" areas (such as a dog run, cat tree, or sleeping area) and any other pets you currently own. Sometimes photos enable us to skip the pre-adoption home visit, which can speed things up considerably for out of area adoptions! For the vet reference, either a vet who is seeing your current pets, or a vet who saw a former pet, is acceptable. If this is your first pet ever, congratulations on joining the pet world! :-D We will consider your application without a vet reference, but we would like to know what vet you think you will use for your pet. Without a vet reference, please be sure to provide at least two strong personal references who would know how you are with animals.

If we have an upcoming transport scheduled to your area, we will make every effort to process and approve your application in time for the transport.
