Shady's Story...
The cornfield was my playground and the culvert was my home. It was lots of fun but not a safe place and sometimes the food was scarce. My 2 brothers and I are now in the comfort of a foster home. The human here says next week (July 11th) we will be getting our “big boy” surgeries. I am not sure what that is but she said the next step after that is a furever home. I am excited! I will be available for adoption July 13th but they say you can come visit me and even put me on hold with an approved adoption application and deposit. My guestimated DOB is 4/13/13. Time to get back to my game of hide and seek with my brothers. Hope to see you soon! POSTED JULY 3RD, 2013. I had my "big boy" surgery today! Tomorrow I graduate from foster care to the shelter. Stop out and see me! UPDATED JULY 11, 2013.
Shady is a beautiful gray/blue boy. UPDATED 11-3-13.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shady, a Geneseo 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 Geneseo, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Geneseo.

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