Franklin's Story...
I’m a handsome and very special boy named Franklin. I was surrendered to the Fairfax County Animal shelter in early 2009. Though my family had had me since I was a kitten, they gave me up saying I was shy and fearful. I hadn’t been vaccinated or neutered. I also suffered from a very painful condition called eyelid agenesis. Fairfax County and Dr. Corcoran of Veterinary Ophthalmology took good care of me, performing 3 surgeries to correct the issue. I can see just fine, and all the pain I’ve suffered has finally been alleviated. After my surgeries and care by a loving foster family, I’ve also overcome being so fearful. I can be shy and a bit nervous at first (so I’d probably do best in a home without small children). But once I am comfortable with you, you’ll note my sweet countenance, my love of people and cats, and my vocalized ‘trills’ when I’m happy. I love pets and will even roll over for a belly rub. I’ve lived with a cat-friendly dog in the past and also enjoy the company of other cats. I’m so eager to find a loving home with a family I will quickly learn to trust and love.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Franklin, a Aldie 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 Aldie, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Aldie.

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