Iris's Story...
Iris was adopted from us two years ago. Her people were moving and could not take her with them. She is as sweet as can be and will be a wonderful companion to the purrson who understands and respects the fact that she does not like to be picked up! She will sit with you, wrap herself around your legs, purr, knead, but don't pick her up. Our guess ... something left over from her feral beginnings two years ago. We all have our quirks.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Iris, a Chesapeake 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 Chesapeake, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chesapeake.

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