Douglas's Story...
Douglas is a very large beautiful cat who gets along well with other felines and his "best bud" is Reggie. He likes to play kinda rough and tumble with the other felines ( I think he secretly had dreams of being a wrestler) and would absolutely love a feline buddy to play with, or better yet, he would love to find a home with Reggie (Reggie's information and picture is on our site as well). Dogs however, are his nemesis! We don't know exactly what experiences he had with dogs before he came to Hope, but they apparently were not positive. (he scared the bejeebers out of my 172 pound Great Dane) A home with no canines is a must as Douglas has no love lost for dogs. He does have a sweet side but to be honest; someone must have mishandled him in the past as he gets suspicious if you spend too much time petting him. Almost like he expects to get slapped after a minute or so. He needs a smart human who recognizes his positive qualities and just wants a cat pal. He has however, shown exceptional tolerance for children and allows them to carry him around like a sack of potatoes - go figure. Both Reggie and Douglas are hangin out at Dover Flag on Main street in Racine. Stop in and see them anytime. . . and buy a flag or two. Est d.o.b. April 2002 .

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Douglas, 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.
