Other Pets at Shelter...
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
Hello, My name is Dawn. At best guess I was born on 2-16-2010. I am a Domestic Short Hair, Black Female Cat with a little spot of White. I currently have a little hair loss in spots but otherwise I have a sleek healthy coat. My story is a little sad at the start, but I was given the name Dawn when I entered the shelter by a young man who hoped this would be a Dawn of a new, good life for me. I was abandoned when the only crime I committed seemed to be I got pregnant too often. I have been living in a foster home where I was spayed , got my shots updated and had a negative feline leukemia test. Even though I had fresh stitches from being spayed I adopted a litter of motherless babies in my foster home and raised them like they where my own. I am a very motherly cat who enjoys the company of younger cats. I am affectionate to people. There was a small dog in my foster home who I liked ok, unless she looked at my adopted babies, then I would have to put her in her place. So I am not afraid to stick up for myself. I am now ready to find a home of my own, where that Dawn of my new life as a loved pet can begin. I promise to give you a lifetime of love in return
Second Hand Purrs is dedicated to the betterment of misplaced felines in the greater Milwaukee area. We will strive to give feline owners and concerned citizens every option above and beyond abandonment and euthanasia.
We are progressing towards this mission by providing an additional resource to the community for unwanted felines. By providing shelter to animals, education regarding spaying and neutering and a genuine concern for helping animals and people alike, we will reach out to the community to make it a better place for everybody.

The first step in the adoption process is coming into the shelter to meet a cat. Once you have found the perfect match for you, you will fill out a one page adoption application. We will then do any necessary vet checks to make sure that if you have any existing pets that they are up to date on all vaccines and have been seen for regular vet care. Once you have been approved one of our volunteers will contact you to set up the adoption. The last step is one of our volunteers will bring the new member of your family to you and you will sign an adoption contract. We do not spay/neuter or give rabies to kittens under six months of age. If you adopt a kitten under six months you will be required to spay/neuter and give them their rabies at your expense. This will be in the adoption agreement. The adoption fees are $80 for one cat/kitten and $130 for two. All cats have been tested for feline leukemia and FIV, had their distemper booster, rabies if over six months, had fecal testing done and been de-wormed, they have been flea bathed, and have been spayed or neutered if over six months of age.
We are a non-profit no kill cat shelter serving the greater Milwaukee area.
