Shad's Story...

Hi! My name is Shad! I'm such a handsome boy! I'm 2 years old, neutered and looking for a home with other cats and kitties. I weigh 15 lbs and I'm hysterical. I am just a funny, silly, goofy cat. And I'm a cat's cat, not a person's cat. I am shy around strangers and it takes me a bit to warm up, but once I do, I love to love you. I have a tiny kitten meow and I love to run up to you, give my biggest baby mew and then rub against and circle around every chair leg nearby. More than anything, I love other cats - playing, cuddling and all-around companionship. I am litterbox trained. My favorite thing is looking out the window, playing chase with foster kitties and having my head scratched. I am very funny and full of personality. Give me the home of my dreams. I just need a home with kitties and patient, caring people. Love me for life and you'll be so glad you did. Adoption fee: $60

Adoption and Foster Care Application:


Adoption Process:
Complete the application at the link above or send an email to to tell us which pet you're interested in and we'll send you a questionnaire that will help us make the best match for you and your new pet. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. This is a pending period to give your dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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