Aya's Info...

I am already spayed, up to date with shots, declawed, good with kids, and good with cats.

Aya's Story...
Aya and Izzy were brought to Helping Strays because a family member had cat allergies. Both of these girls are nice, calm cats who love attention and give hugs when holding them. They are declawed on all four feet, good with children, and get along with other cats. Aya and Izzy are big girls but that just means there is more of them to love. It would be nice if they can be adopted together but would adjust fine in their new home if that is not possible.

Aya's adoption fee is $80; she is microchipped, spayed, and up to date on vaccines. Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at (618) 939-7389 to arrange a meeting.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Aya, a Columbia 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 Columbia, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Columbia.

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