Joey's Story...
Hi, there! My name is Joey! I was on the streets, living the tough life when I was found. I haven'™t been with Henrico Humane Society that long so I'm still discovering who I am as an indoor cat.

I haven't been in foster care very long, but from what I've seen so far it's marvelous. I love the comfort of indoor life and constant access to food. The pets and snuggles aren't too bad either. There are lots of mice around, but they're all different kinds of colors like purple and blue! How strange, but they're just as fun to chase! There is a lot for me to explore in this new life.

I hope to find a family that will invite me into their homes and hearts forever!

Applications are reviewed on a first come first served basis, so we encourage you to complete an application at www.henricohumane.org/adopt/application-for-cats/ before coming to our next adoption event.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joey, a Richmond Domestic Shorthair kitten was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair kitten from a breeder in Richmond.

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