Jake (cat)'s Story...
COURTESTY POSTING (not CARA)

Jake is a 9-year old orange tabby neutered male cat. He was rescued from euthanasia when we volunteered to adopt him in the waiting room of our veterinarian's office. He had been found by the side of the road, and was scrawny and malnourished, and needed about $300 of vet care. We adopted him, paid the vet bill (our vet cut us some break on the cost since he was happy not to put him down), and took him home. He wouldn't eat voluntarily for the first few days and was scared of us. We had to force-feed him with a dropper. I still remember the first time he grabbed the dropper with both paws and willingly gulped the food. That was after about 3 days of force feeding. He filled out, and for a time was slightly overweight. We lived in apartments for the first 5 years of his life, and he always yearned to go out. When we finally bought a townhouse backing to some woods, we began allowing him to be an outdoor cat as well. He always came back, and we have never had a problem. Now in our single family home, where he is in a development, he does the same, although there is less woodsy areas for him. He has controlled our mole population singlehandedly. He loves face scratches, milk, and is very affectionate. He will solicit affection, and loves real hair brushes. He has claws, and is approximately 10 lbs. His litterbox behavior is PURRfect.

We are looking for a new home for Pom and Jake with great sadness. Our family suffers from severe animal allergy and asthma problems which, with our doctors, we have not been able to overcome. We are heartbroken, but are hopeful that Pom and Jake can find a wonderful new home, hopefully together. As you can see, both animals are fine with children.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jake (cat), a Laurel Pomeranian dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pomeranian for sale in Laurel, or seeking a Pomeranian dog from a breeder in Laurel.

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