Petra's Story...
PETRA was recently rescued from a high kill shelter where she had been surrendered because her owner's room mate was allergic to her. Poor Petra was terrified and just hid at the back of the cage, curled up in a ball, trembling, not eating, confused and bewildered about why she was left behind. We rescued her after seeing her pathetic picture and urgent request to save her on a fellow rescuer's blog. She immediately stole our hearts and we had to rescue her. When our volunteer driver met her at the pound and opened up her cage door, Petra cowered at the back of the cage, refusing to look at her rescuer. After a few kind words and some enticing she shyly looked up and then slowly crawled over, gave a few head butts and then flopped over on her side purring in ecstacy...........she sensed she was being rescued and getting out of that hell hole! She was placed in a carrier and was put on the passenger seat in the front so...PETRA was recently rescued from a high kill shelter where she had been surrendered because her owner's room mate was allergic to her.

She was placed in a carrier and was put on the passenger seat in the front so that the driver could reassure her with soft words and scratches behind her ears. She purred and kneaded with her front paws for the entire 1-1/2 hour drive and every once in a while you could hear this deep sigh of relief. It was rewarding to see how this beautiful creature could show us how thankful she was to be rescued.
Petra is a gentle, sensitive type of cat, who probably would do best as an only pet in a quiet home. She seems to lack some confidence and would do wonders with someone who could make her feel loved and wanted and comfortable in her surroundings. Petra is 4 yrs old. Her adoption fee is $175.00 includes vet check, spay, microchip, deworming, FeLV/FIV negative. She is currently being fostered in Pickering.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petra, a Markham 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 Markham, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Markham.

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