Tips on Considering Adoption, Over Buying a Cat or Kitten for Sale in Baltimore

Baltimore Cat Rescues & Shelters

The Option Everyone is Talking About in Baltimore - Adoption!

Baltimore Kittens for Sale Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Baltimore, MD – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.

You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Baltimore pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Baltimore is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Baltimore animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.

You may be looking at the options, and wondering what the difference is between buying a cat or kitten you see advertised for sale in the Baltimore newspaper, for instance, and adopting a cat or kitten from a shelter. One main difference is the feeling you get from knowing your choice is actually saving a life. When you adopt a cat or kitten from a Baltimore-area shelter or rescue group, you’ll not only save the life of the cat you’ll call your new best friend, but you’ll be helping another cat by creating an open space at the shelter. And your new cat will show you vast amounts of gratitude every day!

For Sale? Or for Adoption? Three Great Reasons to Adopt Your Kitten or Cat from an Animal Shelter or Rescue Group in Baltimore:

  1. Find a Better Match - Rescue group and animal shelter volunteers can help you identify the cat who best suits your lifestyle! Often they know the cats and kittens in their care and can help identify the right family member for you! Many people believe a cat or kitten for sale in Baltimore will be more reliable with children or other pets. However, the opposite is usually true: when you adopt a cat, especially an adult cat, from a shelter or rescue group, that cat is a known quantity. That is, many people at the shelter have interacted with and observed the cat, and can tell you all about his or her personality and temperament. Many times, rescue groups keep cats and kittens in foster homes, where they’ve had a chance to interact with children and other animals.
  2. Already Trained, Socialized & Healthy = More Affordable AND Less Stress - So many cats for adoption at Baltimore rescue groups and animal shelters are just looking for a loving, forever home. People are usually relieved to discover that the cats and kittens from rescue groups are already housetrained and well socialized. Most animal shelters and rescue groups in Baltimore make sure pets are up to date on shots, examined by a veterinarian, and spayed or neutered prior to adoption, all of which is included in the adoption fee. That’s a cost savings to you. Most of the time, when you purchase a cat or kitten for sale in Baltimore, you have to cover all of those expenses yourself, and that’s over and above the purchase price.
  3. Be Part of the Solution! - Ask anyone who has ever found a cat or kitten from a local animal shelter or rescue group and they will tell you their new cat or kitten is extra loving and grateful to have been saved! When you adopt a cat or kitten it allows for another local Baltimore cat or kitten to be taken in and saved as well. You are part of the solution, making the world better for your community and for animals!
