Meow! My name is Gordy
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Gray Or Blue||Age:||Kitten|
I am already neutered, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
Meet Gordy, an adorable boy with beautiful russian blue coloring. While he is very sweet and playful, he came to us somewhat shy. He has really blossomed in his foster home and loves to roll over on his back and stretch his back legs out for tummy rubs once he trusts you which only takes a few minutes. He is a very cuddly boy and his purr motor starts to rev the second he relaxes in your arms or lap. Gordy is also very animated making little chirping noises when jumping in to your lap or on and off the furniture. He has a gorgeous plush, soft coat which makes for enjoyable petting. He would do best in a quieter home and he would love a home with a friendly cat. He's also fine with gentle dogs once he gets to know them. Although he loves his foster mom, he would really like a home of his very own! Gordy's estimated date of birth is 6/19/12 and his adoption fee of $115 includes his vet exam, distemper combo vaccines, rabies vaccine, fecal exam, dewormings, flea preventive, FIV/FeLeuk test (neg.), microchip and neutering.

Help this Shelter by making a donation.
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.
