Tino's Story...
ADOPTED 8/19/06 by NATE & DESIRE! Puntino (Italian for "spot") aka Tino is a boy that's almost 2 years old, born 7/25/04. "Tino" is looking for a home of his own. He is up-to-date on vaccines, neutered, and litterbox trained. Gets along fine with other cats and small to medium sized dogs, but would do best with children age 6 and up as he doesn't like to be pulled on or poked by smaller children. He is very friendly and active. Tino was attacked by a dog when he was 4 months old, so he's very weary of large dogs and loud noises. He loves people though and asks for attention any chance he gets. He is a BIG boy, approximately 15-20 pounds...but very loving and just a sweetheart.


We ask that Tino goes to a home with NO large, aggressive dogs. Please see photos and call or email for more information (if you email us please expect a delay in getting back to you). He MUST be kept in-doors AT ALL TIMES.... or allowed outside supervised WITH a leash and harness on (also could have a cat-proof fenced yard). Adoption includes an application, house-visit, contract, and fee. We offer a reduced adoption fee if 2 cats or kittens are adopted by the same family. By signing our contract, adoptees agree to return their kitties to GHP if for any reason they can't be kept any longer. People within a 50 mile radius of Colorado Springs get adoption priority due to transportation restrictions unless I can find someone to do out-of-town adoptions (this is pending). NOTE: If you are interested in becoming a volunteer to do home visits in the Denver area please let me know ASAP! Tino would love to have a forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tino, a Colorado Springs 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 Colorado Springs, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Colorado Springs.

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