Jack's Story...
**Jack and Joker are littermates, born in August 2009. They are closely bonded and will be adopted only as a pair.**


Jack, a lovely tabby, is fearless while Joker is willing to go anywhere Jack goes, although he is a tad bit cautious about people he doesn't know. Joker is a reserved guy and tends to study a situation before diving in. Jack, on the other hand, knows that everyone is here to admire and play with him, and he’s willing to demand attention when he wants it. Both are lap cats and snugglers; but they are kittens who also like to play at 4am, with you (or on you). How could that not be fun?


They are both lap cats: cheerful, very active, and curious. They occasionally hold hallway drag races in the middle of the night but seem to be maturing and growing out of their rambunctions habits. Jack is the sunnier, self-confident one. Joker is quieter and just a little more inhibited. However, once he's comfortable, Joker is quite the cuddle bunny.


Jack and Joker, like all ARCF cats for adoption, have been neutered, microchipped, are up to date on vaccines, and have tested negative for FeLV and FIV.


If you are interested in meeting Jack and Joker, please fill out the "I'm interested" form at our website, and our adoption coordinator will respond promptly. Please note that we place cats in the following counties only: Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Clark.


Animal Rescue & Care Fund, Inc. is a small rescue organization. We rescue homeless animals only, and do not accept owner-surrendered pets. All our animals live with volunteers in their homes until they are matched with the right permanent family. Thank you for considering one of our pets for adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jack, a Portland 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 Portland, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Portland.

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