Fred's Story...
Special person or persons sought to adopt big, beautiful marshmallow of a very shy kitty. Fred was turned in by a former owner who threatened dire consequences to this lovely guy if the shelter did not take him. In spite of his large size, Fred is terribly, terribly timid. He has not taken to the shelter environment at all, and resides in a staff member’s office, where he has slowly come out of his shell a little bit, particularly when it is quiet and noises are minimal. He will require someone who loves gigantic, fluffy cats with gentle personalities. This someone will be very patient and loving, and will totally give Fred a tiny space of his own for as long as he needs it. And he will emerge from his hidey-holes, as was proven recently when one of the shelter’s special foster moms took him home for a few days. She reported that he hid for a day, then came out and followed her from place to place. Fred has lived with other cats before, and possibly will be able to do that again, but his home must first radiate calm and quiet. Patience. Kindness. These two attributes are key to Fred’s success and we know there is someone out there just for Fred. Please come by and make an appointment to see him. He is a staff favorite, and we want the very best for him. He deserves it, and he will give back with his large, sweet heart, a hundred times over, once he trusts and understands that he is totally wanted and will be loved, forever.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Fred, a Westbrook Domestic Longhair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Longhair for sale in Westbrook, or seeking a Domestic Longhair cat from a breeder in Westbrook.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Westbrook 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 Westbrook 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 Longhair breeders who help with Domestic Longhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Westbrook paves the way for another one to be saved.
