Sahara's Story...
"Hi, my name is Sahara and I am a very sweet and loving girl and I've been looking for a forever home for more than 3 years. Everyone seems to want baby kittens so I've barely been given a second look. I am a Katrina survivor -- when I arrived in Racine my paws were raw from trying to scratch my way out to a safe place and I am still sensitive about having my paws touched. The trauma of the hurricane and rescue effort was too much for me -- I did not do well in the shelter situation so I was placed into foster care. Since moving to my foster home, I have done very well -- except that I don't really care for other cats and I'm afraid of dogs. I love attention, rubbing up against people and cuddling - but I'm not very comfortable being picked up. I'm a talker and one of my favorite things is a belly rub! I have to have a low-fat diet due to pancreas sensitivity. Please help me find my forever home -- one with older children or adults only please. I'll be a great companion." Est. d.o.b. 2001) If you are interested in filling out an adoption application, you can find one on our website@

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sahara, a Racine 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 Racine, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Racine.

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