Alcatraz's Story...
Hi, my name is Alcatraz and I was born in 2010 (approximation).

I came to Carol's Ferals through TNR. The plan was to get me fixed and for me to be rehomed by the lady who trapped me. However, I had other plans. I got spooked while transferring me to a cage and I got lose and out the door of the facility, which NEVER happens. After five days of searching and attempted trapping, I finally was caught and hauled inside to safety. Carol decided I needed to be in the adoption program because she spent so long tearing her hair out over me. They named me Alcatraz because of my escape abilities.

I am a friendly, social boy who enjoys company of people and cats alike. I have a cool cat persona for the most part, but I can be somewhat overwhelmed with a lot of noise and chaos. Now that I'm indoors, I'm adjusting to the good life.

Fill out an adoption application for this pet right now!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alcatraz, a Grand Rapids 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 Grand Rapids, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Grand Rapids.

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