Rita's Story...
Looking for a home! Location: St. Louis, MO.

I was on death row at a local animal control. I was covered in fleas and bald from an allergic reaction to them. And I test positive for FIV. My name is Rita, and my life almost ended there, in that animal control!

Thankfully, a kind woman (my namesake) agreed to drive me to St. Louis city, where another kind woman agreed to quarantine me and let me stay until my foster mama could take me. These people all saved my life!

And people like YOU also saved my life by funding my vet care! I have gone to the vet twice to get medical care and treatment for my skin. Now my fur is growing back and I am gaining weight. I love to purr and bonk my head on you. I have a future now!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rita, a St. Louis 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 St. Louis, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in St. Louis.

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