Darla's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Darla's Story...
Darla has been at our shelter since 2005. She is listed as "special needs" because she has not had a lot of interaction with people until recently. Over the past year I have had consistent contact with Darla and she has really come around. She likes to hide under the cat tree and once I start petting the other cats she will come out and join in. She loves to be pet and brushed and will even roll over so you can scratch her belly. I can even pick her up briefly. If she is adopted she will need a patient person to help her get comfortable with her new surroundings and her new humans. When you watch the video you'll be able to see Darla enjoying being pet. You will also notice that the area around her neck has been shaved because she had knots.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Darla, a Oyster Bay Domestic Longhair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Longhair for sale in Oyster Bay, or seeking a Domestic Longhair cat from a breeder in Oyster Bay.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oyster Bay 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 Oyster Bay 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 Longhair breeders who help with Domestic Longhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oyster Bay paves the way for another one to be saved.
