Gene's Story...

Meet Gene, a shorthaired, neutered male, black and white kitten who, along with his littermates and mama Dorothy, came to the Rescue from an overflowing shelter where they had run out of time and space. Gene uses a litterbox like a good boy and he likes to play with toys and other kitties. He is not a very big kitten and will most likely be a small adult cat too. Gene is a cuddler. He was born at the end of July/early August 2012 and he likes to be held, petted and hugged. Gene is still very young, but over the baby kitten stage. He is a really nice kitty who is going to make a lucky family very happy. Please give this handsome boy a chance to become part of your family. Adoption fee: $60. Adopt a pair: $90. Fee includes testing, deworming, neuter and vaccinations.

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at the link above or send an email to info@pawsforliferescue.org to tell us which pet you're interested in and we'll send you a questionnaire that will help us make the best match for you and your new pet. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gene, a Troy 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 Troy, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Troy.

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