Meow! My name is Brie
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Brown Tabby||Age:||Young|
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
This is Brie, a pretty 2 year old girl with lots of purrsonality. She’s an outgoing and somewhat fearless young feline who likes other cats and dogs. Brie is a lovely and very social kitty; still young, playful, curious and is actually quite maternal with kittens and small dogs as you can see from this video here from when she was being fostered at Wilmette Pet Center. Here is another video of her just hanging out with a feline friend.
You’ll notice if you watched the video that Brie has gained a bit of weight since she came to us because she had figured out how to get into the tasty treats at the store. We have moved her in to a private foster home to put her on a diet with the goal being to get down to her svelte shape when she came to us.
She is used to a lot of activity happening around her and goes with the flow, but she did sometimes tire of all the hands (and there were a lot of them) that want to pick her up and pet her so we think we are being prudent in recommending a home without small or rough children. She will, we believe, make a super pet in a normal home environment. And while not mandatory, we think it would be great if she was adopted into a home with another friendly critter, be it dog or cat.
Brie's adoption fee of $115 includes: vet exam, Felv/FIV test (neg), FVRCP (distemper combo) vaccination, rabies vaccination, fecal test, flea control, deworming, microchip and spay.

ADOPT-A-PET is an all-volunteer non-profit animal shelter/adoption agency dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and placing them into permanent, loving homes.
ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for unclaimed animals from various municipal pounds and, space permitting, accepts other homeless, neglected or injured animals from their rescuers.
ADOPT-A-PET was founded in 1981, and has since saved the lives of over 15,000 animals. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them a suitable permanent new home.
ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. All of our animals are boarded at co-operating animal hospitals or in volunteer foster homes until they are adopted by their new families.
ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for medical problems and spayed/neutered.
ADOPT-A-PET is available for educational speaking engagements to schools and community groups in Chicago or the suburbs to promote proper pet care, compassion for animals, and the importance of spaying and neutering.
Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment only, after an application has been submitted.
Occasional public weekend adoption events are posted on the Home Page of our website: www.adoptapet-il.org
Our adoption process: Adopt-A-Pet does not own a shelter facility. Because all of our animals are in private foster homes, they are shown by appointment, after an application has been submitted.
How to start the process: Contact us by email or phone. An adoption counselor will return your message within 1-2 days. You will be asked to fill out an application that will ask for personal information about your family, your home and about the kind of pet you're looking for. Vet references, personal references and landlord information (if applicable) is required. You can also download an application from our website. Once you return the application, an adoption counselor will call you back for a more thorough interview, again within 1-2 days. Sometimes it may take a little longer as we're all volunteers and sometimes it gets very busy. Assuming the pet you're interested in appears to be a match for you, a meeting will then be set up. For some animals, a home check may be required. If an adoption takes place, you will be asked to sign a contract and pay an adoption fee. Each animal's individual adoption fee is posted in its description on our websites.
Adopt-A-Pet serves Chicagoland area and north, northwest, and west suburbs.
