Other Pets at Shelter...
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Tiger Striped||Age:||Young|
I'm a one year old Brown Patched Tabby who was found as a stray. I absolutely love when the volunteers pet me, hold me, and give me kisses. I am very calm, but I do play from time to time. I don't particularly like the other kitties, so I wait patiently by the side while the volunteers pet the other kitties until they have time to pet me. It's not that I hate the other kitties, and I don't attack them or anything, but I would really rather be in a one-kitty home. People always see that I don't like the other cats, and they automatically assume that I am mean, when really I'm not. Maranda, one of the volunteers, holds me every day and gives me lots of kisses, and while we're snuggling, I look up at her with my big, beautiful eyes, and she tells me how good of a kitty I am, and how much she loves me. Sometimes, the other kitties stress me out, but she helps me relax by holding me so that I can't see the other kitties. Can you show me this kind of love? If you come meet me and maybe even hold me, I bet you'll see just how soft and sweet I am.
We are a county run animal shelter full of animal-loving staff and volunteers. We nurture the animals as best as we can while looking for good, loving homes for our feline/canine residents.
Visit our pets at the shelter Monday through Friday, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., and Saturday, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Off-site adoptions take place every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Petsmart on Veterans and Farm and Home on Wabash. Cat adoptions also take place once a month at Big R
on North Dirksen Parkway in Springfield, IL from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The adoption process varies. The adopter fills out an application, and then fees are presented as needed. The adopter is required to show two forms of I.D., one of which must have a picture.
We serve any one who wishes to adopt from us. However, transporting the animal is up to the adopter.
