Dixie's Story...
This sweetheart is one of ten rescued from a hoarder who had over 35 cats in a filthy, overheated, urine and feces soaked, RV trailer that was out in the hot Texas sun. The remarkable thing about these cats is that they are so very loving and friendly. They gather around any and all visitors and offer purrs and headbutts. They happily eat any food given to them and have adapted beautifully to living at our makeshift conference room cat wing at our shelter. The most ironic thing to us is that they are the cleanest, most well-behaved group of cats you could ever hope to meet. They have never missed the litter box (even the blind guy Ray!) and just contentedly curl up in spots around the room. There has been zero cat wear/tear on the room. Some of us wish out own personal cats were so well-behaved! Despite what they have been through, these RV cats are filled with such love and warmth that it is nothing less than inspiring. We are now screening homes for these amazing animals. If you’d like to be on the list to become part of the most wonderful chapter of their life, please come meet them!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dixie, a Houston 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 Houston, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Houston.

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