Gwen's Info...

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Gwen's Story...
My name is Gwen. I came to Helping Strays of Monroe County with a litter of kittens. Almost all of my kittens have found forever homes, which is good, but nobody seems to want me. I am little shy when I first meet someone, but if you are patient and gentle, I will start warming up to you. I know I'm not cute and bubbly, like a kitten, but if someone would give me a chance, I could be a great friend.

Gwen's adoption fee is $40; she is up to date with routine shots, micro-chipped
and will be altered prior to adoption.
Some of our cats are in foster care; please call the shelter to check on their
location.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gwen, a Columbia 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 Columbia, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Columbia.

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