Ponderosa's Info...

Ponderosa's Story...
Ponderosa had been living outside since 2008 before being turned in as a stray to Chicago Animal Care and Control. Since his colony care giver had him neutered and microchiped through Tree House we were contacted. We were able to contact his caregiver who elected to pick Ponderosa up from CACC and return him to his colony, but in an interesting turn of events overcrowded CACC agreed to hold him rather than seeing such a friendly cat released outside. Staff at CACC adore Ponderosa and were delighted to release him to Tree House Humane Society. With his sensitive green eyes and adorable white tipped tail, Ponderosa lives up to his reputation as the stray cat who everyone wanted to save. Besides being diagnosed with mild hypertrophic cardiomyopathy like his pal Cannelloni, loving Ponderosa is a healthy young cat. Ponderosa was born in 2007.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ponderosa, a Chicago 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 Chicago, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Chicago.

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