Amelia's Story...
Amelia is a sweet, docile, gentle and shy, one-year-old, golden-eyed, female, black cat looking for a loving home. Amelia gets along beautifully with other cats and is often found snuggled up in a cat bed at the shelter with one of her cat friends. She also loves people and enjoys cuddling on your shoulder. Amelia was found as a stray in Yorkville. She was ear-tipped indicating that she has already been spayed. She is shy, however not at all scratchy, bitey or feral. Amelia is very healthy, has all her claws, is spayed, de-wormed, and vaccinated for distemper. Her adoption fee of $55 benefits the cats and dogs of Kendall County Animal Control, and includes a micro-chip if requested. To meet and possibly adopt her, please visit the Kendall County Animal Control Shelter in person at 802 John Street in Yorkville, Illinois. You can e-mail Christine at or phone the shelter at 630-553-9256. The shelter is open for viewing and adoption 8:30 am to noon and 1:30 to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and 8:30 to 11:30 on Saturdays.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Amelia, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chicago.

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