Sylvester's Story...
Sylvester, Rocky, Lola, and T-Bird were all adopted from the MCSPCA as kittens. Their adopters said that they would keep the cats even if their family unit changed. Well, 6 years later, they were expecting a baby and not only gave up the 4 cats but turned them in at the county (kill) shelter rather than returning them to the MCSPCA. Having been abandoned and betrayed by their family, it's doubly important that we find these cats homes that will truly be "forever" homes.

Sylvester is an incredibly nice boy! He is friendly and affectionate even in stressful circumstances like adoption events at noisy, crowded pet stores. Many of the cats clam up and look nervous but Sylvester is at the front of his cage saying "pet me, pet me!!" He is also a very handsome fellow with good manners, including faithful use of the litter box. He is neutered, current on vaccinations, and negative for both Feline Leukemia and Feline AIDS (FIV). Sylvester would be a wonderful addition to a loving home and would bring his new person/family much joy.


To adopt you must first complete an adoption application and either come to an adoption event or arrange to meet the cat in its foster home. We do not do same day adoptions so, generally, we can only adopt within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sylvester, a Gaithersburg 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 Gaithersburg, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Gaithersburg.

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