Delbert's Info...

I am already neutered and up to date with shots.

Delbert's Story...

Delbert came to Tree House in January 2010 through a Trap-Neuter-Return program, but we decided to keep him instead of returning him. He was already neutered when we caught him, so he was probably an abandoned house cat. He was bony, unkempt and scared when we rescued him.

Born in about 2000, this older gentleman has made good progress. He tends to keep to himself. In his spare time, Del loves relaxing and taking naps. With some careful pets and the right toy, Delbert will skip his nap for some playtime. In a patient and loving home, Delbert will be a loyal, steady companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Delbert, 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.
