Mel's Story...
Mel is a handsome, extremely friendly and easy-going one-year-old, huge golden-eyed black cat looking for a wonderful new home. Mel enjoys the company of people and loves other cats too. He loves to be pet and seeks out your attention by meowing and rubbing up against you as he walks by. Mel is very healthy, uses his litter box, has all her claws - and wants to keep it that way. He is neutered, up-to-date on rabies and distemper vaccines, micro-chipped and virus-tested. His adoption fee of $100 benefits the cats and rabbits of the Red Door Animal Shelter. To meet and possibly adopt Mel or one of Red Door's many other cats and rabbits for adoption, feel free to fill out an adoption application at http://www.reddoorshelter.org You can also visit the Red Door Adoption Center at 2410 W. Lunt in Chicago.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mel, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chicago.

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