Artie's Story...
I was rescued by a volunteer from a farmer who was going to shoot me. I went into foster care with some other kittens. I am now socialized and ready for adoption! I am a little shy at first but will warm up pretty quickly, especially if you give me treats! I am a real cuddler and love to lay on laps! I get along well with other cats and will be a great pet for someone. Come see my sister, Lillian, and I in the Ocean Room!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Artie, a West Des Moines 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 West Des Moines, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in West Des Moines.

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