Roxie's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Roxie's Story...
This sweet girl just wants to be loved! She's been through a lot in the last several weeks, and needs some extra TLC to help her feel safe. She loves to be petted and will make biscuits with her single paw. Her left foot was severed when she was a kitten, so she's grown up without it and does just fine on three feet.

Roxie was outdoors fending for herself (and eaten up by fleas), when a concerned person took her to Town Lake Animal Center. Roxie's owner was notified that she was at the shelter and at risk of being euthanized, but there was no response. Luckily, this kitty was pulled from the shelter and now has a second chance to find a loving family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Roxie, a Austin 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 Austin, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Austin.

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